Last updated on FEBRUARY 26, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Grants Accounting - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

System is allowing creation of a sub-task for a task which already has budget and is creating issue in Award Budget. It happens when a particular project is budgeted with many awards and the first award budgeting the project is done at Project level.

Example:
(1)
Project 1
-tasks 1
-sub tasks 1.1 and 1.2

Award 1
-fund Project 1 at project level

BUDGET:
Budget 1 - By lowest tasks, PA Period
-budget both task 1.1 and task 1.2 for 250,000
Submit and baseline

(2)
Project 2
-tasks 1
-sub tasks 1.1 and 1.2

Award 2
-fund Project 2 at project level

-BUDGET:
Budget 2 - Project by PA Period
-budget project level line at 500,000
Submit and baseline

(3)
Now take Award 2 and fund Project 1
-default new budget at lowest task level since previous is at lowest task level
-CHANGE budget to project level
-budget costs and submit and baseline
-Try to go to Project 1, Projects - Task 1.1 Click on Add sub-task, you get an error as expected of:
"There is a budget for this task"

Now take Award 1 and fund Project 2
-default new budget at project level since previous is at project level
-CHANGE budget to lowest task level
-Try to go to Project 2, Projects - Task 1.1 Click on Add sub-task, -- this allows you to add a sub-task 1.1.1 - SHOULD NOT, it has not corrupted the Budget!
-now when you go to the budget details, the summary pages still shows the total amount.
HOWEVER details shows the NEW subtask of 1.1.1 instead of 1.1 that the budget was created at and the amount in the details page is 0.00, the budget is not corrupted.
