SAP Open Commitment Carry-forward

Dears,

In SAP Fund Management (BCS) I have the following case:

  • I have in year 2019 PR (Commitment) with value 1000 USD. Now it will be converted to PO in 2020.
  • I run the carry-forward program (T.Code FMJ2). to allow the PO to be created in the new year.
  • The PO is created with value 700 USD. so the system make a saving on the consumable budget of the Year 2020 with 300 USD. and allow to make a new posting within this limit 300 USD. Although the client needs to be allowed to execute only this PR and not to make any new procurement on 2020 without budget.

Any solution for this issue?

    Hi,

    Normally, if you don't close your PR, the commitment should remain active for the whole amount. Check if PO was done in a way that the PR is considered to be closed.

    • Hi Eli,

      Thanks for your reply.

      Now the PR in 2019 with 1000$ and it is fully converted to PO in 2020 but the PO amount is only 700$, so there is a 300$ commitment saving in budget and this saving will be add to the consumable budget again.

      The issue is this saving is added to new year consumable budget which allow the users to create new PRs in 2020 which is not logic!

      So if any solutions for this?

    Hi,

    If you 'fully convert' PR to PO, i.e. you close the PR, then the system behaves correctly and you cannot change the way the budget is adjusted. I don't undertsand, though, that if PR is fully closed, how do you expect the user to create a new PO on it.

    Anyway, if you want to make the commitment budget consumption more strict, you should work with earmarked funds (reservations). Reservation will consume the budget, PR will consume the reservation, PO will consume PR, but the original reservation amount which was committed will remain untouched, unless you deliberately reduce it.

    Regards,

    Eli
