Personnel and Payroll Services

The Personnel and Payroll Services Division (PPSD) processes payroll and leave accounting for all state civil service and exempt employees, state court, and California State University employees. PPSD provides information required to manage the personnel resources of the state and to properly account for salary and wage expenditures, provides data to the retirement systems necessary for calculation of employee retirement benefits, and manages the state's automated travel expense claim system. PPSD is composed of three bureaus, one support section, and has two key initiatives.
