Material Procurement using FM-BCS & GM-GTE objects in Warehouse Concept 3

Dear Experts,

We are implementing FM-BCS and GM-GTE in a University. Our client has chosen Warehouse Concept 3 for their MM related Scenarios, where in case of FM-BCS, budget of Warehouse will be consumed initially and then the same will restored, when consumption is issued to Cost Centre/Order/Project consuming respective cost object budget.

Posting Example Warehouse Concept 3 - Funds Management (FI-FM) - SAP Library

So far, in case of FM-BCS, we are deriving Funds Center+Commitment Item on the basis of Valuation Class during PR/PO, which is working fine. But how can we derive Grant in case when purchases are being sponsored from a Grant. What unique source field can do the job here?


Thanks in advance.


Regards,



Amar Lal

    Amar Lal,

    There are two account assignments to be considered here:

    1. Warehouse (holds inventory) - Single Fund Center and Not Relevant Grant - we base this on the GL Account for inventory

    2. Consuming Grant - Based on internal order for the grant.

    Thanks

    • Very useful point Shyamal, that means we should always initially procure the material using Funds Centre Budget and then later on at the time of consumption, get the same restored by deriving grant through IO. That means we have to enable IO filed for relevant MT, which user have to fill in case of grant at the time of reservation.
