Description:

Learn how The University of Texas at Arlington is using the delivered PeopleSoft Commitment Control module functionality. This session will provide an overview of the setup for Commitment Control and examples of integrations to other applications (e.g., Travel and Expenses, Accounts Payable, etc.).
This presentation will review pages within Commitment Control that are used to enable specified ledger groups and determine which transactions will reflect in each group, the control options on how these transactions are validated against existing budgets, and the ability to control future financial obligations such as pre-encumbrances, encumbrances, and any expenditures associated to these transactions.
The University of Texas at Arlington uses PeopleSoft Portal, Campus Solutions (CS), Human Capital Management (HCM), and Financial Supply Chain Management (FSCM) applications. UT Arlington is currently on PeopleSoft 9.2 and recently upgraded to PeopleTools 8.59.06.

• What is Commitment Control Security?
