Is there a way to enter budget at fund center level without specifying commitment item ? My client is using both CI and FC but they want to enter on FC level only.

in FMBB, commitment item is mandatory and it is not possible to define via Field Status Definition the field CI as optional for budget entries.

any suggestions, please ?

As you rightly said, fund centre AND commitment item are two mandatory objects in FM; other assignments can be optional, but these two have to be provided. What you can do is to create a 'dummy' commitment item, say 'BUDGET', and introduce your budget in the combination of fund centres and this unique CI. Then, build a budget derivation strategy, instructing the system to look for a budget on this combination. You can do it either by creating budget structure or via AVC derivation strategy.
