This report is intended to help reconcile discrepancies between PO encumbrances and the actual expenses and payments that are applied each month. For example, this report can show a discount applied which might result in a lingering encumbrance amount.

Prompt page for report

Below is an example report for a fictitious Purchase Order, 888888, a Rental Charge for an Anteater Home.

The report has two sections for each PO

  • The section outlined in green shows the current information about the PO, including the Purchase Order Status, the Total for the PO, the open, closed and outstanding amounts. The information displayed here will always be current as of the last time KFS posted, regardless of the fiscal period you've selected.
    • In the above example, the Purchase Order shows that it is still open, the entire open amount has been closed, and the outstanding encumbrance on the Purchase Order is 0.
  • The section below outlined in purple gives the transactions for the month selected.
    • In the above example, we see two payments (Document Type: PREQ) have been posted, however the Actuals exceed the Encumbrance. In this case, the Encumbrance was under-estimated, and Mr. Anteater forgot about additional fees that come with renting an "Anteater Home".
