    Labor Cost Distribution functionality in Oracle Cloud105.0

    Title:
    Labor Cost Distribution functionality in Oracle Cloud
    Summary:
    What is Oracle's plan/roadmap to cater to Public Sector clients on this major functionality gap
    Content:

    In Public Sector, all clients are mandated to use 'Actual Labor Costing'. This requires distribution of actual salary amount to various projects and grants on the basis of a predetermined % or based on % time spent on projects.

    Let's use this thread to share our knowledge on Oracle's plan/roadmap and solution alternatives/work arounds.

    We have a very robust custom solution for this requirement, but want to be aware of other alternatives too.

    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

    Migrating historical invoices and revenue

    Migrating historical invoices and revenue for active projects
    Content:

    Hi, we recently (1 Nov) moved to Oracle and for all our current active projects, we decided that we wanted to be able to see the full financial life in our new system (rather than balancing them off and then setting up from the 1 Nov onwards).

    We have migrated the cost elements, but are unsure of the best way to migrate the income. Does anyone else have experience of this and what approach did you take?

    Many thanks, Louise

    Oracle Grants- Funding Source5

    Summary:
    Oracle Grants- Funding Source
    Content:

    Hi Gurus,

    I am facing a typical situation in Payables & it is connected to Projects & Grants (Awards).

    We are trying to create a Project related invoice, with project details at the line level. One of the Field to select there is 'Funding Source', however in that field what we can select (based on the project & contract), is the name of the Sponsorer & not the 'Funding Sources' attached in that award (If there are more than 1 Funding source used in that award). 

    Now one of the suggested approach is to make the Funding Source as Others in the Award, but I am facing issue in that. Whenever I am trying to attach a Sponsorer to the award , it is automatically making the Funding Source as External.

    Are we missing any configurations ? Any suggestions ?

    How to override Budgetary Control in Projects/Grants?4

    Title:
    How to override Budgetary Control in Projects/Grants?
    Content:

    Hi all,


    I have a requirement to override Budgetary Control in Projects/Grants for Misc Expenditure Batch created for Payroll Costs. It is created as Misc Expenditure Batch and the client does not want it failed in Funds Checking even if the budget amount does not cover it.

    In the Manage Budgetary Control page, there is a Budgetary Control Exceptions section to add Transaction Sources.This is global. 
    Just wanted to check is this the only way to override Budgetary Control or is there anything we can do to override for specific projects.

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. We are in 19B now.

    Thanks and regards
