The monthly Payroll reports, including the PPP530, are available online through the Electronic Document Library (EDL)

  • These are the same reports that may have been printed and distributed to departments before July 01, 2016,
  • You will also find that in EDL there are copies of your reports going back for 10 or more years, for viewing and reference, or optional printing.

Below are steps to view and save these reports as PDF files to your computer.  


  • If at any point a window doesn't open, it's likely that your browser is blocking pop-ups. Please partner with your local OIT support (or call the OIT Help Desk) for assistance with unblocking pop-ups from EDL,

  • These steps imply that you have access to EDL. If you do not, please partner with your DSA to request access to Payroll (PPS) Reports EDL in SAMS,
  • The reports you'll see will be based on your level of access in SAMS. Your access in SAMS is beyond the scope of this document. Your DSA can assist you if you have further questions.
