Why Does AME Error with 'The Procedure GetNextPosition Could Not Find Parent Position For : HR Positions: CEO'?

When testing the AME setup for OIE the following error occurs.

ERROR
----------
The procedure getNextPosition could not find parent position for : HR Positions: 'CEO'.


Test Case for expense report for 'DIR FORECASTING' that should route to the 'CFO' position. Parameters are OIE_EXPENSE_REPORT_TOTAL = USD 230, TRANSACTION_REQUESTOR_POSITION_ID 'DIR FORECASTING'.

Action type would be HR position Action: Requires approval up to HR Positions 'CFO'. 'CFO' reports to 'PRESIDENT' who in turn reports to 'CEO'. 'CEO' is the top of the hierarchy.  AME therefore should not be looking for a parent beyond 'CEO'.

Why is it looking for a parent position beyond the CEO?
