Availability control (AVC) question

Hello experts,

I have the following business requirement that I need to implement in AVC. Even though my requirement pertains to the Grants management module, the concept should be the same as FM AVC - so all FM gurus, feel free to pitch in:

1. Client wants budget control at the sponsored class (budget expense category) level over the duration of the budget.

2. Client wants budget control at the entire grant budget level over the duration of the grant.

For example, if there is a $100 grant and of this, $40 is dedicated for supplies and $60 for personnel. So, warning/error messages should be displayed when: a) the total expenses meet or exceed $100; and b) total expenses for supplies meet/exceed $40.

If you could guide me as to how to configure this, that will be very helpful.

Thanks a lot.

Ajay

    Hi,

    Normally, you can define different ledgers of AVC, but I will ask you this: if the parts (in you example supplies and personnel) always compose the whole, that is XYZ=Total, then making control on lower level (X, Y and Z accordingly) will always mean the control on higher level as well. So, what's the problem? Or am I missing something?

    Regards,

    Eli

      A journal entry does not produce a "payroll activity" type entry (i wish it did because my testing would have been much easier). You have to test via a payroll test run in a sandbox client.
