Employees to input their own time in SETRfrom IRWeb News Center:
IRS and NTEU have reached an agreement requiring all employees (with few exceptions) to input their own time into the Single Entry Time Reporting system. While you're still responsible for reviewing and electronically approving time and attendance records, the change makes self-input a requirement for both bargaining and non-bargaining unit employees.
Business operating divisions will begin authorizing employees to self-input time in SETR on a staggered schedule as follows:
Current implementation schedule:
- Aug. 26 – All business units, except SB/SE and W&I
- Sept. 23 – SB/SE
- Oct. 22 – W&I
Upon implementation, you must grant employees sufficient time to review the Memorandum of Understanding, SETR job aid and FAQs, which are available on the ERC.
To access SETR, employees must initiate an Online 5081, which you must approve. Employees will receive an email once access to SETR has been granted. Employees must then login to OL5081 and sign the 5081 in order to get their SETR User ID and password.

The change streamlines the T&A input process, reduces managerial burden, cuts paper costs and increases security and efficiencies by eliminating multiple relays of information.News Home
