Non-payroll Inquiries (Billing, Bank activity, compliance, etc.)

E-mail: This shared e-mail address inbox is monitored by the entire OAS team. When you e-mail us, we will acknowledge the receipt of your e-mail and indicate who will be responsible for following back up with you. For example, “John, thanks for your inquiry. I’ve cc’ed Laura Soto on this reply and she will follow up with you directly.” Follow-up time is typically within 24-48 hours, and we will do our best to communicate expectations with you so you aren’t left wondering.
Phone: 317-236-1410. Either Peter Baldan or Diane Sutton will answer your phone call, and if unable to answer your question, will transfer you to someone on our team who can. If the initial call rings through to voicemail and you leave a message, the voicemail will be sent as an audio file to

Payroll Inquiries

E-mail: centralpayroll@archindy.orgThis shared e-mail address inbox is monitored by Bernetta Woodard, and Liz Davis. Both Liz and Bernetta are the primary respondents. You’ll receive an automated reply when you e-mail, and a member of the Payroll team will follow up you.
Phone: We prefer payroll-related inquiries to be received via e-mail rather than phone call, as this allows us to centralize the communications and focus our attention on responding through one portal ( which decreases our average response time. That said, please do not hesitate to call Bernetta or Liz in the case of a payroll emergency.
