AASHTO's AASHTOWare Project™ system makes extensive use of XML to share data between it and other systems. This site contains resources to help those who need to share XML data with AASHTOWare Project™ software, whether they are end users or vendors of software systems.
Developers of payroll systems who want to produce valid Payroll XML files from their payroll systems to be passed to AASHTOWare Project software will find numerous useful resources in the AASHTOWare Project Payroll XML Resource Kit section of this site, including all needed XML schemas, examples showing creation of valid files, and both online and downloadable Payroll XML validators.
Contractors and other firms that need to deliver valid Payroll XML files to agencies that use AASHTOWare Project software will be best served by using a payroll or project management system that already supports producing valid Payroll XML files. Alternatively, they can use the spreadsheet and online conversion utility in the AASHTOWare Project Payroll Spreadsheet Conversion Utility section of this site to manually enter their data into a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet and convert it from there into valid Payroll XML.
