Q: I get warning messages about dates after entering an account? What do I do?
Review your start and end-dates of the Project and Award. Refer to the OGA crosswalk for info. If you feel that the dates are wrong in OGA, then please work through your SPA SFA to make the date changes in OGA.
Q: I get warning messages about dates after entering an account string. Can I still save my entry?
Yes, but the payroll will go to payroll suspense if the account string fails Oracle Grant Accounting (OGA) validation at the time of LD processing. For example:
|Project A ||End-Date |
|In LD ||31-Dec-04 |
|In OGA ||30-Nov-04|
|LD Processing ||Result|
|PP24 (01-Nov-04 to 14-Nov-04) ||Payroll post to Project A |
|PP25 (15-Nov-04 to 28-Nov-04) ||Payroll post to Project A |
|PP26 (29-Nov-04 to 12-Dec-04) ||Payroll post to Project A from 29-Nov to 30-Nov. |
Payroll post to payroll SUSPENSE for 01-Dec to 12-Dec.
Q: Will my Labor Schedule change process the distribution adjustment?
No. The forms are independent of each other. You will have to manually enter the retro distribution adjustment.
Q: Will my Labor Schedule reflect processed distribution adjustments?
No. The form is static and reflects at a specific period in time when the change took take place, not when the change should have happened.
Q: Can I delete or overwrite my funding entry?
It depends. No, if we’ve already processed the pay period that covers the accounts’ start date. Yes, if we have not processed the pay period that covers the accounts’ start date. In both cases, LD will let you know if you are successful or unsuccessful if you try.
