Impacted Area(s) Description  Status Created Date PI Impact
Oracle Procurement

Document Details Page Linked from Approval Notification Shows No Information - When you navigate to a purchase order from an approval notification, the document details page shows no information. Oracle has identified this as a bug that is expected to be resolved in a future patch/update.

Workaround - Review the purchase order PDF attached to the approval notification for purchase order details. To view it online, you can navigate to the purchasing document in the Purchasing application.

Expected resolution: April 2024

In Progress 3/21/2024

High - PIs may not have access to Purchasing in Oracle, so they rely heavily on the PO link in the notification to show PO details.

 

Oracle Procurement

Punchout Purchase Orders Excluding Certain Requisition Lines - Approved punchout requisitions should automatically convert to purchase orders. Oracle has identified a bug that is causing some approved requisitions lines to be excluded when the purchase order is created.

Workaround - As a workaround, the department buyer should manually create a purchase order for any missing requisition lines until this bug is resolved by Oracle. This can be done by navigating to the Process Requisitions page in the Purchase Orders infotile.

Expected resolution: Pending ETA from Oracle

In Progress 3/21/2024 Medium - the manual workaround could cause delays in ordering on behalf of PIs.
PPM Projects

Unprocessed Costs - PPM strictly enforces business rules to ensure costs are within project start and end dates.  When a cost is passed to PPM that is outside of the project start and end dates, it results in an “unprocessed cost” error and the transaction cannot post to the contract or grant. 

More Information: link

Expected Resolution: Ongoing, with guidance    

Ongoing, with guidance     3/22/2024 High - This has been treated as high priority.
Non-Salary Cost Transfer (NCT)

The Non-Salary Cost Transfer Tool occasionally encounters an issue displaying the error message "No Valid Budget" even when valid COAs are inputted.

Expected Resolution:  TBD

In Progress 3/22/2024 High - Can cause delays in moving costs to the correct COA.
Oracle GL and PPM

Resolved 3/15/2024

On March 13, a system error caused a 6x duplicate journal entry in Oracle GL and PPM. Accounting promptly posted reversals to both modules. Though the duplicate data will be seen in Oracle and Looker, end balances should be correct due to the respective reversals. No further action is required.

Resolved 3/15/2024 3/13/2024 None - duplicate transactions were already reversed, and will not impact end balances

    To help us identify and address the various problems, if you encounter a workflow issue, we kindly request your cooperation in trying the following troubleshooting scenarios before submitting a ticket. If you have a pending ticket after completing the steps in the guidance, please update your ticket with the findings or a comment that the issue is resolved, as your feedback helps confirm resolution.

    An additional issue was identified with processing expense reports that have multiple allocations, where the report may have been getting stuck in the "Pending ERP Validation" status. When the COA validation issue was resolved, any expense reports stuck in the "pending ERP validation" status proceeded without requiring further department action.

    Note: that this "Pending ERP Validation" workflow step comes before any Financial Previewer and/or Financial Approver approval stops, so if any report is pending approval action in your respective queues, please take action to move it forward.

    The issue regarding transmitting Purchase Orders (POs) to punchout Suppliers in Oracle Procurement has been successfully resolved. All orders generated since the go-live phase have been effectively communicated to the respective suppliers for fulfillment. As a result, no further action is required from the departments, with the exception of new orders for suppliers CDW and Grainger:

    Grainger PunchOut: Please note the Grainger issue is resolved, and orders are in the process of being re-communicated to the supplier. 

    CDW PunchOut: Due to communication issues,
    CDW is not receiving UCR purchase orders. Please be aware that this issue is on the supplier side and unrelated to Oracle, and resolution is expected this week. To temporarily overcome this situation, we recommend the following workaround:
