Vendor code generation and blocking

Dear team,

There has been a lot of discussion in our company regarding who should create and block employee personnel codes….. HR or Finance team ?

At present, HR Team is responsible for the generation of SAP personnel codes in HCM module. Also, Finance team makes payments to employees through their respective vendor codes.

The question is:

  • 1.In general which team is responsible for creation of vendor codes? HR or Finance team?
  • 2.The reason why the above question is asked is because our HR team uses SAP-SuccessFactors for personnel code creation. The data gets replicated into SAP-HCM through Hana Cloud Integration. Therefore we do not want our HR team to work on two systems, viz. SAP and SF. Rather HR team will use SF only and Finance team takes care of vendor code creation in FI module as it is as per Finance team’s requirement.
  • 3.Is PRAA program the only way to sync personnel codes from HCM module to Finance? Or is there any other Finance specific T-code to do so? IF there is a better way for Finance team to enable the vendor code, please suggest.
  • 4.Also, in principle is PRAA a Finance T-code or it belongs to HCM module?
  • 5.Lastly, regarding blocking of vendor codes. As per my understanding, vendor code should be blocked by finance team after final payment has been processed.
