As part of SUNYís five-year technology plan, SUNY Administration
developed an online time and attendance system (TAS) for
campuses to implement and replace existing paper time and
attendance records for unclassified, non-hourly employees. At
Buffalo State, we are gradually implementing the system
department by department for professional employees, and
eventually faculty, to allow for training.
We hope you will find the new online time and attendance system
to be easier and more efficient than the current paper system.
Benefits to the new system include:
- Accessible through SUNY website via SUNY Buffalo State
NT username and password.
- Paperless, electronic records eliminating paper,
printing, and storage space expenses.
- Employee and supervisor self-service for accrual
balances and attendance history.
- E-mail notifications when applicable.
- Electronically request time off (optional).
- Printer friendly version of attendance record

The College is requesting that SUNY petition the Governorís
Office of Employee Relations and the Civil Service Commission to
suspend the attendance rules for January 7, 2014, to excuse the
full day absence without charge to leave accruals. If and when
that request is approved, we will notify employees. Until that
time, employees who were absent on January 7 due to weather
conditions should charge appropriate leave accruals (vacation,
personal time, holiday compensatory time). Please note that sick
leave should be charged only if there was a medical reason for
the absence on January 7. Charges to sick leave or for
pre-approved time off would not be waived if the request is
