How to Check Starting Balances in PPM General Projects


This article is only for reference, PPM entries removed as of May 2021. Carry forward balances as of June 30, 2020 were allocated to both the General Ledger (GL) and Project Portfolio Management (PPM), if applicable (IFIS Budget - IFIS Actuals = Carry Forward Balance to OFC). In the GL, balances are at the Fin UnitFundProject, and Fund Balance (account 300000) if mapping from Index to Project exists. If no mapping from Index to Project exists, balances are at the Fin UnitFund, and Fund Balance (account 300000). Carry forward balances in account 300000 are updated at year end.
