Goal

Reviewed Oracle Project Management User's guide and Oracle Projects Implementation guide and it does not mention to enable 'Encumbrance Accounting' as a required step to setup budgetary control:

"Implementing Budgetary Controls Budgetary controls enable you to monitor and control expense
commitment transactions entered for a project. To enable budgetary controls, perform the following steps:
1. Set profile options for budgetary controls
PA: Days to Maintain BC Packets
PA: Enable Budget Integration and Budgetary Control Feature
2. Define default budgetary control levels and the default budgetary control time interval
3. Create and baseline an initial project cost budget
4. Adjust default control levels for your budget line details"

In the current documentation Encumbrance accounting is only listed in the required steps to set up
