Features

The integration of accounts payable accounting assumes that the vendors are created in Public Sector Contract Accounting (PSCD) and are then distributed in Funds Management (PSM-FM). As such the vendor is available in Funds Management (PSM-FM) and can be used for payment requests for example.

More master data is required for postings in both components, such as G/L accounts, cost elements, commitment items, and so on. This master data is created in the component Funds Management (PSM-FM) and then distributed in Public Sector Contract Accounting (PSCD ). Payment requests can be posted in Funds Management (PSM-FM) after the master data has been distributed.

With a transfer the items are written off in Funds Management (PSM-FM) against a clearing account. The items are booked on contract accounts in Public Sector Contract Accounting (PSCD ). The payment occurs in Public Sector Contract Accounting (PSCD).
