What are Allocations?

Allocations are used to distribute monetary or statistical amounts across funds, departments, products, or any other ChartField defined in PeopleSoft General Ledger

Slide3

Parts of the allocation process

Allocation Type - This is the calculation method for the pool and basis and describes how the basis is used to distribute the pool amounts to the target.Pool - The amount or amounts to be allocated.Basis

– Determines how and in what proportion the pool amounts are distributed to the various targets

.

Target

– This is the destination where the amounts are allocated.

Offset

– Entries that clear or offset the pool amounts as they are transferred to the target.

Slide4

Allocation Types

Copy: Copies pool amounts to the target or offset with possible percentage changes. Spread Evenly: Divides pool amounts equally by the specified basis fields

to derive

the target amounts. For example, this type can be used to divide the

pool

equally in thirds among department IDs 0100, 0200, and 0300.

Allocate on Fixed Basis:

Allocates on a fixed basis and percentage of

pro rata

allocation. It is based on the fixed allocation percentage that you

specify in

the % field in the Value/Node scroll area on the Basis page.

Prorata

with Record Basis:

Divides the pool amount among the

targets based

on amounts that are stored in the basis record.

Arithmetic Operation:

Defines the allocation calculation as a

mathematical operation

between the pool and basis.

Slide7

How do you make Allocations work better for you?

StreamlineRemove unnecessary steps from your GroupsKeep your GRANT_ALLOC_TREE cleaned up and updated

Slide8

How do you make Allocations work better for you?

CustomizeAdd custom groupsAdd nodes on existing GRANT_ALLOC_TREE or create a new treeAdd additional criteria to your pool selection to make steps more granular
