    Title:
    Why is Burden Transaction showing a Funds Check status of 'Blank' when it has gone through Funds Checking
    Summary:
    Burden Transaction is showing a Funds Check status of 'Blank' when it has gone through Funds Checking and passed Funds Checking
    Content:

    Hi All,

    I have a situation where Burden Transactions that have passed Funds Checking show a status of 'Blank' for the Funds Status column
    in the Managed Costs page.
    Why is that?

    I am attaching a word document with screenshots showing the Managed Costs page showing this status, Award Overview page showing the
    Available Costs as 0.00 after the Burden Costs have gone through Funds Checking, and Error Message I am receiving when exceeding the Funds available.
    Woudl like to know why is it showing a status of 'Blank'.

    Any reply/feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks and regards

    Paul,

     

     Yes, the 100.00 is reserved, but look at the Transaction column in the Review Budgetary Control Transactions page.  It is 16001, showing that the 100.00 burden was checked along with the 400.00 entered for that transaction.  The summarized burden transaction is 16002, and since burden is checked along with source transactions, the summarized burden transactions do not consume funds again, bypass Funds Check and therefore have a 'Blank' Status.

      Hi Paul,

      Did you do any adjustment of this transaction?

      Did you do any change in burden multipliers setting?

      I see 0 Raw Cost in Receiver ledger Currency

      Regards,

        Hi Alex,

        Thanks.
        I have not performed any adjustments.
        This particular record is a burden cost generated as a separate line (25%) of the previous record in the screenshot (which is 400.00) and hence there is no raw cost for this item.

        This is only an example I gave. I noticed that none of my burden transactions were showing the Funds Status. But it is going through Funds Checking, and shows up in the Budgetary Control Review and does not allow any additional transactions because there is no available funding.

      Summarized burden transactions are not subject to Budgetary Control.  The burden amounts have been committed along with the source transactions, and the budget impact, including the burden can be seen in Funds Check Results for each of the transactions that contribute to the burden costs.

        Alex,

        Thanks for the reply.

        If you look at my attached doc with the screenshots, it clearly shows in the Review Budgetary Control Transactions page, the summarized burden transaction for 100.00 is 'Reserved' like any other transactions. But only in the Managed Costs page, it does not show the 'Funds Status' and instead has 'Blank'. That is what raises my question. Hope you understand.
