    Expense report error - burden issue

    I have a few expense reports, charging to different sponsored projects that are throwing the following error:

    Burden cost cannot be calculated because burden multipliers do not exist for the organization or cost codes.

    Charges have processed before with no issues and I've confirmed the the expense types are in the burden structure/schedule.

      Kim, also ensure that the Expenditure Organization, for Expense Reports defaults as the persons assignment organization, is included in the Organization Hierarchy that is assigned to the Burden Schedule.

      Kim - After creating new organizations, you must run process called "Build New Organization Burden Multipliers".  We were receiving the very same error and once we ran this job for each new organization, the error went away.

      Thanks Michelle, I ran the process a few weeks ago and still get the error. It fixed an issue for someone that was trying to submit a requisition...I'm still getting the error on an invoice, in payables, and I'm wondering if that invoice needs to be rejected/canceled and rebuilt.
