BruinBuy Plus Encumbrance Errors

As communicated on December 22, 2023, the Open Commitment Subsidiary Ledger Report related to encumbrance data reporting will display a third transaction row as a result of purchase orders (POs) migrated to BruinBuy Plus. Report users can still expect to see this change. 

With the launch of BruinBuy Plus, an issue has been identified with encumbrance postings, where the invoice encumbrance credit amount showing in FS is not correct. To make the necessary corrections, all January 2024 encumbrances posted to FS have been reversed. The next step will be to re-post them once the issue is resolved. 

We are working diligently to resolve this issue and as quick as possible. We hope to have this issue corrected in the very near future. In the meantime, we ask that you please refrain from submitting tickets regarding these errors, as we are aware of the issue and are actively working to resolve.
