We would also like to emphasise the following when the SCM/Procurement process is followed to acquire Stock/Inventory items.
Previously the default segment was the Stores Control segment (automatically selected). This segment field has been opened up for selection, also for the purpose of selecting the correct Funding item. The valid Stores Control item for the required part is still the default on the selection list, but with the intention of selecting the correct Funding item. Selecting Non-funding is no longer permitted.
In the case where budgeting has not been aligned with spending, the Budget Check on Inventory can be removed, which will mean that a funded segment still has to be selected, but there will not be a check for budget available. Making use of this option may result in overspending and is done so at own risk.
