General Ledger - Cost Pool Calculation


The Cost Pool Calculation screen is available to run the cost pool calculation process for all or selected Cost Pool Groups for which Cost Pools have been defined in the Setup >> Cost Pool Groups screen.  The calculation process can be run one or many times for a given Legal Entity, Cost Pool Group, Fiscal Period.  The resulting allocated amounts (and optional actual indirect cost rates) are available for viewing and potentially posting to the General Ledger (and optionally the rates to the Cost Structure >> Indirect Cost Rates).

The resulting list of Cost Pool Groups may include entries that are available for cost pool calculation as well as those that have been previously posted (and thus unavailable for re-calculation unless their previous post has been voided).

Using the leading check boxes, you can identify which entries to include in the calculation process.  These entries can have their cost pools calculated and re-calculated as many times as you like until such time that the results have been posted (via the Cost Pool Calculation List screen).

To initiate a calculation process, select one or many Cost Pool Groups from this screen and click on the Calculate button.

Calculation Process - Feedback

Once the calculation is run, the user will see feedback written to the screen that will indicate the cost pools included in the process.  Should any unexpected issues be encountered, additional details will be written to the screen for the effected cost pools.  Note that any cost pools that encounter an error during the calculation process would result in no calculations being saved.  Other cost pools within that same run that did not encounter issues would have their results saved.
