Using Commitment Control With Purchasing Only (Doc ID 2480299.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 09, 2019

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise SCM Purchasing - Version 9.2 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


We have turned on Commitment Control for Purchasing. We do not use requisitions and do not use Accounts Payable for vouchering. Commitment Control has been configured and budgets established. When a purchase order is created and budget checking is executed and the PO's Budget Status is valid, the encumbrances for the Budget Period is increased. Which is fine. When a PO line is cancelled or closed, the amount for the PO line is subtracted from the encumbrances for the budget period, in effect, this is causing more budget being available for other purchase order to consume. Since, we are not using Commitment Control for AP, there are no expenditures. How can you use Commitment Control for Purchasing only and have budget checking based on total amount of purchase orders for a budget period instead of the total encumbrances for a budget period? Is there configuration that would need to be done or is there any documentation on how to use Commitment Control with Purchasing only?
