Commitments not reduced correctly for service PO's during confirmation.

Hi Experts,

In SRM 5.5 Server with R/3 4.7, when PO (service) is created with mupliple items (say 3 items), with multiple cost distributions (say 70% on WBS1 and 30% on WBS2). It creates the necessary commitments and fund allocation in R/3

Note:we are using SAP Funds management for budget creation and allocation, our budget are handled through funded program not through traditional FI budgeting.

when we do confirmation/Service entry, the commitments are reduced on first account assignment (WBS1). which leads to pending commitments 😔 even when the PO is closed the WBS2 project remains with few commitments.

is there is standard settings in r/3 that controls commitments? when our development team debugged it, there is no trace/hint where the issue occurs 😊

Any help/hint will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers, Renga

    Hi Renga,

    Closing of the PO doesnt, make the commitment on the WBS to zero. Because you are allocating a amount to the WBS (either through FM or FI budgeting) which is used by the PO when you do a cost assignment. To release the funds remaining on the WBS the excess amount it needs to be released and the WBS element should be logically closed. I am not aware of the transaction with releases the excess funds in the WBS. But you can verify that.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards

    Ramesh.
