Funds centre not derived in ME31K Contract creation

Dear FM Gurus

We are facing issue related to Funds Management. Please have a look.

While creating Contract in t-code ME31K, FM related pop-up appears on screen. But details like Funds centre, Fund, commitment item are not automatically derived. Commitment item is mandatory field here. User is able to manually input values and proceed further.

We want to automatically derive FM details in ME31K. Please advise how we can derive Funds centre, Fund and Commitment item here? Do I need to do some specific configuration in FM for this ?

In FMDERIVER, Profit centre is mapped to a Funds centre. And In material master, profit centre is maintained in costing 1 tab. So should system not derive Funds centre here ?

    Did you follow instructions on integrating Contracts with PSM-FM? IMG - Public Sector Management - Funds Management Government - Actual and Commitment Update/Integration - Integration - Integration Materials Management - Contracts

    Dear Eli

    Thanks for your inputs. I reviewed information in this path and found that we have done everything except one.

    In MM side, "CP Plan active" selection box is not marked against contract type. I will make change with MM guys and test this. Hope it works.

    I activated trace and executed ME31. On FM pop-up system did not show FM account assignment details. But when I clicked cancel, system opened new window for "Test FM Object assignment Derivation strategy". On this screen, DUMMY funds centre and Commitment item were seen.

    In backend system is deriving values, then why pop-up is blank. I am not sure. Attaching screenshot, incase you can figure out something.

    Dear Eli

    We selected "Commitment Plan active" checkbox in contract type config in Purchasing node. Now FM details related pop-up does not appear in ME31K. Instead a new tab "Commitment Plan" is seen in ME31K screen. Please see attached.

    Is it usual to fill details inside "commitment plan" tab in ME31K ? Our MM consultant is not sure if this should be really activated. Because it requires additional input from MM users.

    Also when I fill relevant details in "commitment plan" tab, system still does not derive commitment item and gives error. So we are not able to save in ME31K. CI item field is disabled.

    In field selection string, commitment item is marked as "optional entry". Inventory GL Account for this material ( OBYC - BSK ) is mapped to Commitment item in FMDERIVER. This CI has fin transaction 30, CI category 3, Stat CI checkbox selected.

    Please suggest how to resolve issue.

    for others reference

    we did not implement "CP Plan active" in contract document type config in MM. Rather we have changed field status of FM elements in ME31K to be non-mandatory, and proceed further. we derived statistical commitment item automatically.
