Grant / grant management dependancy on Funds Management

Hello experts,

Based on a quick look at documentation, I am not sure if GM requires FM or not. If you have organization which does not have a requirement to use FM (commitment items etc.) but has a large number of projects with multiple financing sources, and needs to implement the effect of these in FICO processes and needs to report the status of the projects to the parties involved, I think GM could be a useful component.

Also, is it possible just to have account assignment object grant activated, without complete activation of GM (and possibly FM)?

Regards,

    We have GM without FM. We had to implement a 'minimal' configuration for FM to enable the some of the functionality required.

    GRANT is not a CO Cost Object, you will still need to post to a CO cost object such as WBS Element, Cost Centre or, Order.

    The use of the 'Not Relevant' Grant code is for postings which are not grant relevant but still need a grant account assignment. These postings will then derive the 'DUMMY' grant value.

    The GM postings will all appear in FI/CO ledgers as well as the special ledger '90' for Grants.

      > Still to clarify a little: As you are saying "The GM postings will all appear in FI/CO ledgers as well as the special ledger '90' for Grants" are you saying that grant shows up (or can show up) as account assignment in ledger FAGLFLEXT or do you still need to activate FMGLFLEXT (Public sector orientated ledger).

      In our system the Grant does appear on the FMGLFLEXT ledger we don't appear to have it in FAGLFLEXT, but that could be specific to our set up.

      The Grants Management Special Ledger 90 is reflected in tables GMIA and GMIT.

    Hi,

    It is possible to activate Grants Management without integration to FM. As a result, you would be able to activate all the GM functionality without actually activating FM.

    Please bear in mind that the "Fund" is used for both modules, but you don't have to activate FM in order to use it.

    You cannot use the Grant account assignment object without activating GM.

      Thanks Shahaf!

      Just to add to the topic, I copied the following

      section from Online Help of GM, according to

      which it seems to be possible to use grant in

      CO only.

      Rgds,

      "Set Grant as Not Relevant for Grants Management

      If you have activated the dimension Grant in other components, such as CO, but do not need to make use of any other features in the GM system, use this step to specify a dummy grant to serve this purpose.

      There are a number of ways you can configure the grant to be used. The best way is to access the derivation tool and make the following entries:

      ¡ Type of entry: MOVE

      ¡ Constant: u201CDUMMYu201D

      ¡ Target field: GRANT_NBR (Grant)

      You must carry out both of these steps, but the order in which you do so does not matter."
