Chapter 8 - Property, Plant and Equipment

 

1         Objective

The objective of this chapter is to provide guidance on the accounting processes of property, plant and equipment (PP&E) transactions within the Umoja environment in line with IPSAS requirement. This chapter details how an end user, based on the involved Umoja user profiles, should perform roles and responsibilities related to accounting of PP&E transactions.

This chapter is based on guidance under IPSAS 17: Property, Plant, and Equipment.

2         Summary of IPSAS Accounting Policies

2.1            Recognition and Measurement

Property, plant and equipment (PP&E) are tangible assets held by the organization provided they meet the following recognition criteria:

·               Controlled by the organization i.e. benefit and risk consideration accrue and born by the organization.

·               Probable that future economic benefit or service potential flow to the UN for more than a year

·               Cost or fair value is measured reliably.

·               Amounts meet the minimum established threshold

2.1.1        Valuation

PP&E is stated at historical cost less accumulated depreciation and accumulated impairment losses. Historical cost comprises the purchase price and any costs directly attributable to bringing the asset to its location and condition including associated costs. For PP&E acquired at nil or nominal cost (including donated assets), the cost will be measured at the fair value of the asset. Refer to the Corporate Guidance on Property, Plant and Equipment for detailed guidance on establishing the fair value of an asset.

Once identified as an asset based on recognition criteria, the asset is recorded as an item of PP&E. We refer to the Corporate Guidance on Property, Plant and Equipment for additional detail.

Asset under construction costs will be capitalized if they are directly identifiable exclusively to the construction of the particular assets or group of assets and meet the required thresholds.

A gain or loss resulting from the disposal of PP&E arises where proceeds from disposal differ from its carrying amount. Those gains or losses are recognized in the statement of financial performance.

2.1.2        Leasehold Improvements

Leasehold improvement should be viewed from a project perspective. If the improvement relates to one project to be completed in stages, the threshold should be evaluated based on the aggregate value of the stages over the life of the improvement. If the leasehold improvement relates to projects that are planned for and budgeted independent of each other, then the threshold should be evaluated based on the individual amounts.

2.1.3        Subsequent Recognition

Costs incurred subsequent to initial acquisition are capitalized only when it is probable that future economic benefits or service potential associated with the item will flow to the UN and the cost exceeds the established threshold for initial recognition. Repairs and maintenance (day-to-day servicing) are charged to surplus or deficit in the statement of financial performance in the year in which they are incurred.

2.1.4        Subsequent Measurement

The organization has elected the cost model to measure PP&E after initial recognition. PP&E is depreciated over their estimated useful life using the straight-line method except for land and assets under construction, which are not subject to depreciation. For non-peacekeeping operations, significant components of real estate assets with different useful life are depreciated using components approach. Given the expected pattern of usage of the item of PP&E, the residual value is nil unless residual value is likely to be significant.

3.1            Asset Accounting (AA) Module Overview

In Umoja, the Asset Accounting (AA) module deals with the accounting of PP&E, which are classified as non-current assets in the Statement of Financial Position. The AA module manages the complete lifecycle of an asset starting from the creation of the master data of the asset, acquisition of the asset and its capitalization, transfers between entities and retirement when the asset is no more useable. During this time, the system calculates appropriate depreciation values and impairment losses.

Back to top

3.2            Other Modules Integrated with AA

The asset accounting module is integrated with the following modules across Umoja to allow for eased flow of data and communications:

Image chapter 8

The real estate asset will be created as a real estate object in the real estate module. When the asset master record is created in the AA module, it will be linked to the information stored in the real estate module via the field 'Real Estate Object'. The related real estate record stores further information such as land and building physical/operational parameters, building floors, spaces and lease details, if any.

In the case of plant and equipment, the equipment master is created automatically upon goods receipt. All maintenance and related logistical information will be maintained on the equipment master in the Plant Maintenance module. Fixed asset and equipment master records are linked to each other through a cross reference field in the respective master data records.

3.4            Creation of Asset Master Record

The asset shall containing the primary parameters such as cost center, fund, business area etc. should be created before processing any transactions related to that asset. The asset shall is the basis to create the complete asset master record. The asset master record is created in Umoja in two methods:

3.4.1        Automatic Creation of Assets Master Record

This is the process whereby the asset shell is created when the procurement of the asset is carried out from the material master called ZSAST or by selecting the account assignment 'A' during the source to acquire (procurement) processes. When a Requisitioner selects the asset from the ZSAST material master and creates the shopping cart, the asset shall is automatically created based on backend configuration. The asset shall is subsequently updated during the follow-on purchase order and goods receipt transactions and becomes asset master record completed for all the required parameters for the downstream management of the asset.

3.4.2        Manual Creation of Asset Master Record - Current Year Acquisitions

When an asset is not acquired from ZSAST material master through the source-to-acquire processes (Requisitioning àPurchase Order àGoods Receipt) i.e. when an asset related to current year acquisitions is donated, self-constructed, found through physical verification or incorrect material number was used and no asset master was created (i.e. the item was expensed), such asset is manually created using T-code AS01 as follows:

3.            Intangible Asset: No operational object exists to represent intangible assets in Umoja. No link is required in Umoja.

4         Acquisition of Assets

The first step in the PP&E lifecycle is acquisition of the asset. Assets can be acquired in following ways; as a standalone (purchased) asset, asset under construction or through donation. The following sections describe the Umoja processes for each acquisition method, starting with the process for standalone purchased of assets.

4.1            Standalone (Purchased) Assets

One potential means for the UN to acquire asset is through direct purchase of completed assets through the source to acquire process in the SRM module of Umoja. Standalone assets are those for which no additional costs are anticipated and are capitalized at the time of receipt. A standalone asset is recognized by the UN when the risks and rewards of the asset have passed to the UN based on the underlying contract and control criteria.

Standalone (purchased) assets are recorded at cost. When referring to the 'cost' of an asset, the following cost components are included:

• Its purchase price, including import duties and non-refundable purchase taxes, after deducting trade discounts and rebates;

Any directly attributable costs to bringing the asset to the location and condition necessary for it to be capable of operating in the manner intended by management (associated costs);

The initial estimate of the costs of dismantling and removing the item and restoring the site on which it is located.

We refer to the Corporate Guidance on Infrastructure Assets and the Corporate Guidance on Property, Plant and Equipment (excluding infrastructure assets) for more details on cost components of an asset.

4.1.1        Asset Requisitioning and Creating Process

When acquiring a standalone asset, the Requisitioner initiates the purchasing via creating the shopping cart by picking product ID starts with 21 (Material Master called ZSAST) or select the A (Asset) in the Account Assignment tab . When the shopping cart is saved, the asset shall be automatically created with the basic parameters necessary for the follow-on transaction processing of placing a purchase order and generating goods receipt.

Items should be added to the Shopping Cart based on the description. The Requisitioner must verify if a product is considered to be an Asset in accordance with the IPSAS guidelines i.e. it is valued at equal to or more than USD 20,000 (or equal to or more than USD 5,000 for specified smaller entities) or for certain items (i.e. vehicles) valued at equal to or more than USD 5,000.

Product IDs for Assets valued at USD 20,000 or more typically start with 21 i.e. the Product ID for a Computer, Server, Standalone (Asset) is 2100001083. Product IDs are created by the UN's Master Data Maintenance Team in consultation with the Business. However, smaller offices that have the lower IPSAS Asset threshold of USD 5,000 may have Assets with product IDs not starting with 21 in which case the user has to choose the account assignment 'Asset' and capitalize the purchase.

1.            If an item with a Product ID beginning with 21 is selected, the Account Assignment Category automatically defaults to Asset as shown in the screen shot below and the appropriate General Ledger Account is also defaulted.

Image chapter 8

2.            If the item is deemed an Asset in accordance with IPSAS and the Account Assignment Category field is not already populated with Asset, click the icon beside the Account Assignment category field and click to view the drop-down menu options. Double click on Asset select. Each Asset will require an individual, unique Asset Master Record number. Click the icon beside the Asset Master Class field and click on the defaulted description to select. Click Create Asset Master.

Image chapter 8

3.            The asset is capitalized and reflected in the financial statements when the goods are received with the resulting accounting entry of:

Dr. Asset GL 27****** with asset subledger (Asset Master Record)

Cr. Goods Receipt Payable GRIR

For the detail Umoja process of raising a shopping cart from the ZSAST material master, creating the purchase order and goods receiving, refer to Finance Manual Chapter on Expenses, sections 3.2.4: Requisitioning Process for Goods and 3.2.6: Inbound Goods - Receiving and Receipting.

Back to top

4.2            Assets under Construction (AuC)

Another means of acquiring an item of PP&E is through assets under construction. The stage of completion of the construction works should be reflected in the statement of financial position as AuC for the amount of costs incurred to date. If the asset under construction is completed and is available for use, then it should be moved from the AuC to final asset under the appropriate asset class and start depreciating. 'Available for use' is determined to be when the physical construction of the asset is complete even though routine administrative work might still continue.

Most of the organization's real estate assets are acquired through AuC. The AuC is set up for the following asset classes:

·               Building

·               Infrastructure

·               Leasehold improvements

·               Intangibles

For information regarding IPSAS requirements related to AuC, please refer to www.ipsas.un.org/

4.2.1        Cost Collectors

Under IPSAS the organization is required to capitalize costs related to AuC that are expected to exceed the USD 100,000 capitalization threshold. In order to collect the costs associated to the construction, a cost collector in the form of either Internal Order of Work Breakdown Structure Element (WBSE). The use of a cost collector in Umoja allows the organization to easily capture costs related to AuC and also ensure these costs are settled to the respective AuC and capitalized on monthly basis.

Before creating an Asset under Construction, ask the following questions:

·               What type of funding? Assessed funds or grants? How many?

·               At what level of detail do you need to record costs? How many cost centers / functional areas?

·               What type of asset will this be? New Building, Leasehold Improvement, Major Alteration, Infrastructure, or Intangible Asset?

·               Do you want to collect costs on a Project with WBS Elements or on an Internal Order?

·               How will services and materials be procured? Is a Service Order going to be used for services?

·               Should you create a project or an internal order?

Image chapter 8

Note that users with the following access rights will be able to create and make changes to the cost collector.

PP.01 Programme_Project: Project_Management_Approver

PP.02 Programme_Project: Project_Management_User

FA.15 Financial_Accounting: Asset_Accounting_User

FA.16 Financial_Accounting: Asset_Accounting_Senior_User

Assets under Construction can be used to create Final Assets within the following Asset Classes. The tables below show which AuC Asset Class is associated with each Final Asset Class.

Image chapter 8

4.2.1.1  Set Up an AuC as a Project with WBS Elements

In line with IPSAS requirements, a typical major building shall be reported in line with the following components and subcomponents and cost collectors should be set up based on this structure.

Image chapter 8

A standard project template which follows the typical componentization of a Building AuC (where the final assets are the sub-components) exists in the system. To use this as a starting point for your AuC, follow the instructions directly below, otherwise look at the section on creating a project from scratch.

4.2.1.2  Creating a Project from a Standard Project Definition Template

C.13.  For the Level 2 WBS Elements. The procedure is the same as in the previous step.

You may edit many WBS Elements at once in a tabular format by switching to the WBS Element Overview. This may be a more efficient way of viewing and managing the different properties of each WBS Element. The exception to this is the attributes found on the UN Assignments tab will not be shown in the Overview table, otherwise everything else is available in this overview.

Image chapter 8

Here you can see and edit all of the WBS Elements and most of their attributes.

Image chapter 8

Note: Ensure that the Functional Area (Organization tab) correctly matches that of the Cost Center (Responsibilities tab) for each WBSE. If the functional area is not correctly aligned with the cost center at the WBSE level then the entity will receive budget exceeded messages. You can confirm the Functional Area assigned to each Cost Center with transaction KS03.

C.14.  Fill out the necessary fields for all remaining WBS Elements.

** Only bottom-level WBS Elements should collect expenses, and therefore all 'parent' WBS Elements should have their Acct assn elem. Indicator unchecked on the Basic Data tab.

Image chapter 8

C.15.  If you need to add a new WBS Element:

C.15.1.  Determine which WBS Element you'd like to insert the new one beneath. If you want to add a Level 2 WBSE, choose the Level 1 WBSE. In the example screenshot below, we are creating a Level 3 WBSE beneath the 'Non-Capitalisable Costs' Level 2 WBSE.

C.15.2.  Create a new WBS Element by right-clicking on an existing WBS Element and selecting Create à WBS element.

Image chapter 8

C.15.3.  Fill in a description for this WBS Element and any other necessary fields as with any other WBSE.

Image chapter 8

C.15.4.  The new WBSE should be visible in the tree view after pressing enter.

Image chapter 8

C.16.  If you expect to have capitalisable charges that will be distributed across multiple final assets (i.e. building subcomponents) when the project is completed, AND you cannot define a % split when the shopping cart/Purchase order is set up, you can add an extra WBS Element to collect these costs during construction/development, calling this WBSE 'Other Capitalisable Costs'. At final project settlement, you settle these charges to multiple final assets on a percentage basis. It is recommended that you keep charges to this WBSE to a minimum to avoid a lengthy review process of expenses charged to this WBSE when the AuC is finalized.

Note: Non-capitalisable costs should NOT be charged to this WBSE, if part of the costs are capitalisable and part not capitalisable this split must be done at the time of the financial commitment.

Follow the instructions in the previous step to add the WBS Element. Be sure to give it a description that communicates its intended use, such as 'Other Capitalisable Costs'.

For example:

If your project will have service charges that will be capitalized across many of the building's subcomponents (Foundation, Superstructure, Roof, Interior construction, etc.), you could charge the 'Other Capitalisable Costs' WBS Element. At the final settlement, the entity would need to review the charges to this WBSE and define multiple settlement rules (on a percentage basis) for this WBS Element to the final assets of each of the subcomponents.

Image chapter 8

C.17.  If you want to remove an existing WBS Element, select it in the tree view and then click on the Delete Image chapter 8 button and confirm that you want to delete the WBS Element.

Image chapter 8

Image chapter 8

C.18.  When you have added, removed, and updated all of the WBS Elements, save the project by clicking on the Save Image chapter 8icon at the top of the screen.

C.19.  You should see a message in the status bar similar to this, and the project will be closed.

Image chapter 8

C.20.  After initial creation, you will want to update the status of your project. In order to release the project. You will have to take 3 steps:

                              1.            First step: Update the User Status of each WBS Element from 10: IPP to 20: UBR

                              2.            Second step: Update the User Status of each WBS Element from 20: UBR to 30: RFR

                              3.            Third step: Update the System Status of the Project Definition to Released.

Instructions on changing the User Status and System Status are covered in section 4.2.1.4 - Updating the Project/WBSE Status.

D.14. Review the last tab UN Assignments and fill in a Grant / Sponsored Program if this WBS Element is Grant-funded.

Image chapter 8

D.15. Repeat steps D.10 - D.13 for all other required WBS Elements.

Note: As mentioned in the earlier section, if you expect to have capitalisable charges that will be distributed across multiple final assets or subcomponents when the project is completed and you cannot define a % split when the shopping cart/Purchase order is set up, you can add an extra WBS Element to collect these costs during construction/development, calling this WBSE 'Other Capitalisable Costs'. At final project settlement, you settle these charges to multiple final assets on a percentage basis. It is recommended that you keep charges to this WBSE to a minimum to avoid a lengthy review process of expenses charged to this WBSE when the AuC is finalized.

D.16. When you have added all required WBS Elements, save the project by clicking on the Save Image chapter 8icon at the top of the screen.

D.17. You should see a message in the status bar similar to this, and the Project Builder screen will be closed.

Image chapter 8

D.18. After initial creation, you will want to update the status of your project. In order to release the project, you will have to take 3 steps:

                              1.            First step: Update the User Status of each WBS Element from 10: IPP to 20: UBR

                              2.            Second step: Update the User Status of each WBS Element from 20: UBR to 30: RFR

                              3.            Third step: Update the System Status of the Project Definition to Released.

Instructions on changing the User Status and System Status are covered in the next section.

4.2.1.4  Updating the Project/WBSE Status

There are two types of status in Umoja, System Status and User Status. A project goes through several statuses before it can be used. Each WBS Element, and the Project Definition, has its own status.

Image chapter 8

System Status

User Status

State of the Project / Actions

CRTD - Created

IPP - Initial Project Planning

Initial Status of Project / WBS Elements.

CRTD - Created

UBR - Under Budget Review

All WBS Elements have been defined and the project is ready to have budget allotted.

CRTD - Created

RFR - Ready for Release

Budget has been allotted. It is ready to be released.
**Note: Only users assigned the FA.16 - Asset Accounting Senior User or PP.01 - Project Management Approver can set this status.

REL - Released

RFR - Ready for Release

The project has been released. Individual WBS Elements can now have their User Status set to Ready for Release.

REL - Released

RAB - Released and Budgeted

The project is Released and Budgeted. Goods and services can now be procured against these WBS Elements.

 

E.      The steps to update a project's User Status / Transaction Code: CJ20N

E.1.      Execute transaction code CJ20N or navigate to the following path in the SAP Menu: Accounting à Project System à Project à Project Builder

E.2.      Reopen the project you created earlier by either clicking on the Open Image chapter 8 icon and entering the project definition number, or by clicking on the dropdown arrow (Image chapter 8) next to Last Projects Processed and double-clicking your new project.

Image chapter 8

E.3.      To change the User Status for all WBS Elements, select the Level 1 WBS Element in the Project Tree and then select Edit à Status à User Status à Set & Pass On from the top menu bar.

Image chapter 8

E.4.      Double click on the new User Status you want to change to. Review the messages that are displayed in a new window and click on the green check to continue. Save Image chapter 8 the project.

Image chapter 8

Image chapter 8

F.       The steps to update a project's System Status to Released / Transaction Code: CJ20N

F.1.       Execute transaction code CJ20N or navigate to the following path in the SAP Menu: Accounting à Project System à Project à Project Builder

F.2.       Reopen the project you created earlier. All WBS Elements should be in status RFR (Ready for Release) in order to release the project.

F.3.       Select the Project Definition (the top line in the Project Structure Tree) and then select Edit à Status à Release from the top menu bar.

Image chapter 8

F.4.       Save Image chapter 8 the Project.

F.5.       Before posting to any of the WBS Elements, the User Status must be updated once again to RAB (Released and Budgeted). This should not be done, however, until budget has been allocated by FM or GM colleagues.

Back to top

4.2.1.5  Updating the Budget Control WBSE Field for FM/GM Users

A special transaction code exists for determining where each WBS Element derives its budget from. This enables FM and GM Users access to allocate budget to projects without giving them access to change any other project fields. You may have already defined this for your project in the UN Assignments tab of each WBSE, but this is an alternative specifically for FM and GM Users. Asset and Project Management Users cannot use this transaction without having the appropriate FM or GM authorizations.

G.     Steps to update the budget control for FM/GM Users / Transaction Code: ZPJWBS

G.1.     Enter transaction code ZPJWBS and then enter selection criteria (usually just the project you wish to modify) and click on Image chapter 8 Execute.

Image chapter 8

G.2.     Select the WBS elements you wish to modify by clicking on the button to the left of their rows, and then click the Edit button in the toolbar.

Image chapter 8

G.3.     Fill out the window that opens and click on the Save Image chapter 8 icon to update the WBS Elements.

Image chapter 8

4.2.1.6  Ensure that Higher-Level WBS Elements Cannot Incur Expenses

It is good practice to only collect costs at the lowest level WBS Elements within the structure. If a WBS Element has 'children', then it probably should not be charged to. Charging to these 'parent' WBS Elements can be prevented by ensuring the Acct asst elem. indicator is not checked (expenditure will then not be able to be charged to this WBSE, however budget can still be assigned).

H.     The steps to review and change WBS Elements so that they cannot be charged to / Transaction Code: CJ20N

H.1.     Enter transaction code CJ20N.

You must have the FA.16, PP.01, or PP.02 security authorizations to make this change.

H.2.     Open the project you created earlier by clicking on the Open Image chapter 8 icon and entering the project definition number, or by opening it from the Worklist à Last Projects Processed section.

H.3.     From the project structure tree on the left, find each of the WBS Elements that should not be able to incur expenses.

In this example screenshot, we have 3 'parent' WBSEs that should have the Acct asst elem. Indicator unchecked.

Image chapter 8

H.4.     Select each 'parent' WBSE and then confirm whether or not the Acct asst elem. Indicator checkbox is checked. Uncheck it if necessary.

Image chapter 8

H.5.     Repeat steps H.3 and H.4 for all parent WBSEs and Save Image chapter 8 the project.

NOTE: The Acct asst elem. Indicator becomes unchangeable once the project or WBSE's System Status is set to Released. Be sure to confirm the appropriate checkbox status before releasing.

4.2.1.7  Review that Budget has been Assigned to the Project

All projects will have one or more 'Budget Control WBSEs'. These are WBSEs within the project that receive budget allocations. The other WBSEs on the project will reference these Budget Control WBSEs in the UN Assignments tab and derive/share their budget from it.

I.        The steps to review the budget for a project / Transaction Code: ZPJPRJBUDBAL

I.1.        Enter transaction code ZPJPRJBUDBAL.

Any Fixed Asset or Project Management Users can access this transaction.

I.2.        Enter the project or WBSEs that you wish to review and click on Image chapter 8 Execute.

Image chapter 8

I.3.        You will see a report similar to the below summarizing the status of each Budget Control WBSE.

Image chapter 8

Note: Take care to ensure that the Functional Area aligns correctly with the Cost Center. WBS Elements inherit the Functional Area from that of the Project Definition, so if the Cost Center has a different Functional Area then the Functional Area would need to be manually corrected. Use KS03 to review which Functional Area belongs to which Cost Center.

4.2.1.8  Create Settlement Rules for Non-Capitalisable WBS Elements

Settlement rules must be created for each WBS element that will be settled to a cost center (non-capitalisable AuC costs). This is not required for WBS elements that are settling to an AuC asset because those settlement rules are automatically generated during settlement (it will need to be done later however when you are settling to the final asset).

Notes:

·               Settlement Rules must be maintained for the lowest level WBS elements where the expenditures have been incurred.

·               If a service order is used, the expenditures incurred for the service order must first be settled to the project and then to the AuC.

Back to top

J.        The steps to update Settlement Rules for WBS Elements / Transaction Code: CJ20N

J.1.        Enter transaction code CJ20N.

You must have the FA.16, PP.01, or PP.02 security authorizations to create settlement rules.

J.2.        Open the project you created earlier by either clicking on the Open Image chapter 8 icon and entering the project definition number, or by double clicking on it in the Worklist à Last Projects Processed section.

J.3.        From the project structure tree on the left, select the WBS Elements for which settlement rules need to be created. You will have to create them one WBS Element at a time (repeat steps J.4 and J.5 for each one).

Image chapter 8

J.4.        Select the WBS Element and go to Edit > Costs > Settlement Rule from the top menu bar.

Image chapter 8

J.5.        The Maintain Settlement Rule: Overview screen opens up for the selected WBS Element. Populate the following fields:

·         Category: CTR - This defines the settlement receiver type to be a cost center.

·         Settlement Receiver: Enter the appropriate Cost Center (this is often the Responsible Cost Center of the WBSE).

·         Settlement Percentage: 100%

If there is split settlement you may adjust the percentage here by adding multiple lines that sum to 100%.

·         Settlement Type: PER (periodic settlement, the rule used for month end).

Image chapter 8

J.6.        Press the Enter key on your keyboard, and then click the Save Image chapter 8 icon in the initial screen (the project builder).

NOTE: For all WBS Elements with a selected Investment profile, a Settlement Rule to the corresponding AuC will be generated automatically.

4.2.1.9  Define Investment Profile and Create AuC Asset after Project is Already Released

If your AuC project has already been released, but you need to add an Investment profile to it, there are a few additional steps to complete compared to adding an Investment profile to an unreleased project.

K.      Steps to add Investment profile to a released AuC / Transaction Code: CJ20N

K.1.      Execute Transaction code CJ20N and open the project.

K.2.      Select the WBS Element you wish to create an Investment profile for. Go to the Control tab.

K.3.      From the Control tab, select the appropriate Investment profile for this WBS Element.

Image chapter 8

Image chapter 8

K.4.      After selecting the investment profile, press the Enter key on your keyboard.

K.5.      You should receive a warning message similar to the following. Press the Enter key again to dismiss this message.

Image chapter 8

K.6.      On the next prompt, click Yes to create an asset under construction for this WBS element.

Image chapter 8

K.7.      On the next screen (Create Asset: Initial screen), just click on the Back Image chapter 8 button before going any further. If you instead hit Enter at this screen or go further into to Master data, then you will be forced to enter a Fund and Budget Period for this AuC Asset before clicking the Back button (adding a fund at this stage is not necessary).

Image chapter 8

K.8.      After this the asset has been created in the background and the system has accepted the investment profile you entered. Don't forget to Save the project after this.

4.2.3.3  Create Sub-Assets for AuC

The Asset Accounting Senior User identifies that the construction project has costs to be capitalized at the end of the month. Initially, sub-assets need to be created for each distinct fund that is charged to a WBS Element. After initial creation, sub-assets usually do not need to be recreated in each accounting period (month). Exception to this is if a new fund is used during the month, when new sub-assets would need to be created for such fund.

Structure below is an example showing where sub-assets fit in.

NOTE: Users can also use CJ20N and simply select edit user status, then set and pass on to change to MEC, it should be noted the system may produce warning messages, as a result of the missing account assignment elements, these should be ignored.

Keep in mind that only WBS Elements currently in User Status RAB can be set to new User Status MEC.

4.2.3.5  Special Note for Capitalisable WBSEs with Grant-Funding

AuC Projects that are funded by a Grant need to settle the non-capitalisable Indirect Costs (IDC) or Program Support Costs (PSC) charged to their WBS Elements.

Because these IDC / PSC charges are NOT capitalisable, you must define an extra settlement rule to each capitalisable WBSE in the project so that these non-capitalisable charges will automatically settle to a cost center instead of an AuC. This new settlement rule will have an additional dimension is called Source assignment and the value to be selected is NOC which stands for 'not for capitalisation'.

For example:

The first line is the automatically generated settlement rule for settling capitalisable costs to the AuC.

The second line is the non-capitalisable settlement rule described above.

Image chapter 8

Q.     To define the IDC settlement rules / Transaction Code: CJ20N

IMPORTANT: This settlement rule must be created AFTER the first settlement. This is because the system will automatically generate the AuC Asset settlement rule upon first settlement. This IDC settlement rule must be defined below the AuC Asset settlement rule.

Q.1.     Enter transaction code CJ20N and open the project you are creating settlement rules for.

Q.2.     From the project structure tree, select the WBSE for which costs will be settled one at a time.

Q.3.     Go to the task bar and select Edit > Costs > Settlement rule

Q.4.     Add a new line with the following dimensions (It should look similar to the screenshot above):

·         Category: CTR (Cost Center)

·         Settlement Receiver: The responsible cost center for this WBS Element

·         Settlement Percentage: 100%

·         Settlement Type: PRE (Preliminary)

·         Source Assignment: NOC (Not to be capitalized)

Q.5.     Click on the Back button Image chapter 8 to go back to the project builder screen.

Q.6.     Repeat steps Q.1 - Q.4 for all remaining WBS Elements.

Q.7.     Click on the Save icon Image chapter 8 to save changes.

4.2.3.6  Run Cost Settlement

After you have reviewed the costs against the project and have ensured that sub-assets exist for the AuCs, you can run cost-settlement to capitalize costs to the AuC sub-assets.

R.      The steps to run Cost Settlement / Transaction Code: CJ88

R.1.      Execute transaction code CJ88.

You must have the FA.16 (Senior User) security authorization to run project settlement.

R.2.      Define the Project/WBS Element to be settled by entering the following fields:

·         'Project' or 'WBS Element': Enter the Project ID, or the ID of a single WBS Element you wish to settle. If you enter it at the Project level, it will attempt to settle for all WBS Elements that are in the MEC - Month End Closing User Status.

·         With hierarchy: Check this if you entered a WBS Element (instead of a Project) and wish to also settle all subordinate WBS Elements structured beneath it.

·         Settlement period: Current month (should match posting period).

·         Posting period: Current month.

·         Fiscal Year: Current year.

·         Asset Value Date: Usually today's date, or the last day of the month.

·         Processing type: Automatic

·         Test Run: Checked

These reports are available in ECC, and suit day to day needs of AuC projects/IO. Please note that entities are also encouraged to develop entity specific reports within BI.

4.2.6.1  Budget Availability Report

This section outlines the steps for using the Budget Availability Report in Funds Management. It provides more detailed information on budget availability and consumption (allowing for instance users to review budget availability for a budget class in a particular budget period).

This report can be used to:

·               Monitor funding and budget consumption, including the released budget for grants

·               Drill down on the details of budget distribution and budget consumption

·               Troubleshoot budget availability errors

·               Check for negative balances

In the AuC context it is available to below users:

·               PROGRAMME_PROJECT: PROJECT_MANAGEMENT_USER

·               PROGRAMME_PROJECT: PROJECT_MANAGEMENT_APPROVER

·               FINANCIAL_ACCOUNTING: APPROVER_(AP)

·               FINANCIAL_ACCOUNTING: USER_(AP)

·               FINANCIAL_MANAGEMENT: BUDGET_OFFICE_USER

·               FINANCIAL_MANAGEMENT: BUDGET_APPROVER

·               FINANCIAL_MANAGEMENT: EARMARKED_FUNDS_DOCUMENTS_CERTIFIER

·               FINANCIAL_MANAGEMENT: FUNDS_COMMITMENT_APPROVER

·               FINANCIAL_MANAGEMENT: GRANTS_MANAGEMENT_ACCOUNT_APPROVER

·               FINANCIAL_MANAGEMENT: GRANTS_MANAGEMENT_ACCOUNT_CREATOR

·               FINANCIAL_MANAGEMENT: GRANTS_MANAGEMENT_ACCOUNT_USER

To correctly interpret the budget availability report, Users should already be familiar with:

·               Master data in FM (Funds Management): fund, budget period, funds center, commitment item, functional area, funded program and grant;

·               The hierarchy of commitment items;

·               The relationship of GM (Grants Management) master data and FM master data; and

·               The concept of budget control and the super class.

FF.   Steps to generate the report / Transaction Code: FMAVCR02

This report gives information like postings to AuC assets and the valuation of the AuC asset.

The Asset Explorer shows most of the financial information for a single asset or AuC. It shows the current book value, acquisition value, planned and posted depreciation, and any other transactions against the asset. Since we are looking at AuCs here, there will be no depreciation. The Planned values tab will be of most interest for AuC assets as it shows total accumulated costs as well as each settlement transaction.

Image chapter 8

You can see any WBS Elements, Investment Orders, or accounting elements that are linked to the asset record in the bottom-left corner window Objects related to asset.

The Planned values, Posted values, Comparisons, and Parameter tabs show details on the value of the asset over time.

You can see all transactions posted against this asset in the bottom window called Transactions if the Planned values tab is selected. In the example shown above, we see periodic settlements from the WBS Element for periods 11 and 12. You can double click on any transaction to see the FI document posted.

4.3            Manual Acquisition of Assets - Current Year

Assets would need to be manually created and acquired in the following instances:

      1.                  Where assets are found after conversion through physical verification.

      2.                  In cases where the wrong material number was used and no asset master was created (i.e. the item was expensed). NOTE: if the item was received into inventory and if not done already, the item should first be issued to consumption BEFORE the asset is created.

      3.                  For Assets that are donated to the UN entity (non-Grant).

Users of this guide will be those assigned the following roles:

·               FA.15 - Financial_Accounting: Asset_Accounting_User

·               FA.16 - Financial_Accounting: Asset_Accounting_Senior_User

Manual recognition of assets related to current year is done in three steps:

      1.                  The first step is for the Asset Accounting User (FA.15) to create the Asset Master record as per section 3.4.2

      2.                  The second step is for the Asset Accounting User (FA.15) to create and park the asset acquisition document to post value to the Asset Master record and record the correct capitalization date.

      3.                  The third step is for the Asset Accounting Senior User (FA.16) to review and post the parked asset acquisition document.

Back to top

Excluding intangible assets, new Fixed Assets will need to be linked to either an Equipment record or a Real Estate record.

·               Equipment: The Property Custodian responsible for the equipment (Role SD10) should link the newly created Fixed Asset to the associated Equipment. A review of the cost centre should also be undertaken to ensure it aligns to the asset record.

Refer to the Services Delivery Job Aid: Equipment Creation Post Go-Live.

·               Real Estate object: The Facilities Planner responsible for the Real Estate Object should link the newly created Fixed Asset to the associated Real Estate Usage Object.

Refer to the instructions in the Real Estate Portfolio Management training materials.

For assets found that relate to prior years, accumulated depreciation entries are also needed. Please follow the instructions in section 4.4: Manual Acquisitions of Assets -Prior Fiscal Years Acquisitions (Post‑Capitalization).

***Standard Associated cost is to be applied for all assets capitalized from the 1st of January 2015. It was set for entities NOT included Vol. 2 as 4% (i.e. Non-Peacekeeping).

4.4            Manual Acquisition of Assets - Prior Fiscal Years (Post - capitalization)

This section details the procedure for the manual acquisition of an asset - for assets acquired in prior fiscal years. These assets will be recognized at net book value for the first time in the current fiscal year (i.e. the capitalized cost of the asset and accumulated depreciation for prior fiscal years is recognized in the current fiscal year).

Assets would need to be manually created in the following instances:

      1.                  During ramp up for assets acquired in prior years, but not included in collection files.

      2.                  Where assets acquired in prior years are found only after conversion (not included in collection files or created during ramp up).

      3.                  In prior-year cases where the wrong material number was used and no asset master was created (i.e. the item was expensed). NOTE: If the item was received into inventory and if not done already, the item should first be issued to consumption BEFORE the asset is created.

      4.                  For assets that were donated to the UN in a prior fiscal year (and not previously recognized). NOTE: For assets donated under a grant please follow the process for PO in-kind.

Recognition of assets related to prior period is done in two steps:

      1.                  The first step is to create the Asset Master record referencing the correct, prior fiscal year, capitalization date.

      2.                  The second step is to post value to the Asset Master Record. The second step posts value to the asset and recognizes relevant accumulated depreciation related to the closed fiscal years.

Excluding intangible assets, new Fixed Assets will need to be linked to either an Equipment record or a Real Estate record.

·               Equipment: The Property Custodian responsible for the equipment (Role SD10) should link the newly created Fixed Asset to the associated Equipment. A review of the cost centre should also be undertaken to ensure it aligns to the asset record.

Refer to the Services Delivery Job Aid: Equipment Creation Post Go-Live.

·               Real Estate object: The Facilities Planner responsible for the Real Estate Object should link the newly created Fixed Asset to the associated Real Estate Usage Object.

Refer to the instructions in the Real Estate Portfolio Management training materials.

VV. Steps to record asset acquired in prior fiscal year / Transaction Code: ABNAN

VV.1. Log in to Umoja ECC.

VV.2. Execute transaction code ABNAN.

VV.3. In the Transaction data tab, fill in the following fields:

·         Existing asset: Select this and set field value to the Asset Number for asset created with AS01

·         Document Date: Set this to today's date

·         Posting Date: Use the relevant posting date from current open posting periods

·         Orig. val. date: Set the same date that you have used for Capitalization Date (Capitalized on) in corresponding AS01

·         Amount posted: Enter Acquisition Value of the Asset

·         Quantity: 1 EA

·         Text: This is a free text field that should contain information about the asset acquisition transaction

VV.4. Move to the Additional details tab, and enter the following:

·         Posting Period: You can leave this blank, the system will derive it from the Posting Date

·         Document Type: You can enter AA or leave this field blank, the system will automatically populate with AA

·         Offsetting acct no.: GL Accounts for Manual Acquisition in Prior Periods (Post-capitalization) for GL Account to be used. Usually, 77299070 (material adjustments to financial balances must be discussed with the accounts division)

·         Transaction Type: The following Transaction Types should be used:

o   Z43 asset added due to physical verification

o   Z44 asset added due to incorrect initial classification as expense

NOTE: If using Z44 and the item was procured into inventory, please ensure that the item has been issued to consumption before proceeding.

o   Z4L prior year acquisition (finance lease)

·         Reference: This is a free text field - record Reference Number or other text to identify this document

Image chapter 8

VV.5. After you have reviewed all entries on these two tabs, click on Simulate Image chapter 8 button in upper left corner of the window - or you can select Extras àSimulate from the menu.

Image chapter 8

If you get a warning message about past date, press Enter to proceed.

VV.6. If the simulation is successful, you should be taken to the Display Overview screen and see a summary of the posting to be made.

Image chapter 8

You should see three lines:

·         Posting Key 70: Debit to asset, shows full Acquisition value posted against the Asset as of the first day of current fiscal year.

·         Posting Key 75: Credit to asset, shows accumulated Ordinary Depreciation posted against the Asset as of the first day of current fiscal year.

·         Posting Key 50: Net Book Value (NBV) posted against specified GL account.

Review the coding block account assignments are correct.

VV.7. If this asset does not pertain to a WBS Element or Internal Order (often referred only as Order in this function), you may skip to the next step.

If, however, the asset is to be capitalized against an WBS Element or an Internal Order, you'll need to add the WBS Element / Internal Order number to the posting manually.

The WBSE or IO must be added to the two line items with Posting Key 70 and Posting Key 50.

In order to see WBS Element and Internal Order, you may want to modify current report layout and show additional fields, as shown in the following screenshot (you can save the layout for future use, if you want to).

Image chapter 8

VV.7.1. To do this, click on the line with Posting Key 70 (usually Line #1), and then click on the Additional account assignment button.

VV.7.2. Fill in either the WBS Element or the Internal Order and then click on the Green Check.

Image chapter 8

VV.7.3. Click on the line with Posting Key 50 (usually Line #3), and then click on the Additional account assignment button.

VV.7.4. Fill in the WBS Element or the Internal Order and then click on the Green Check.

VV.7.5. In case of the WBS Element, this is how data should appear after the change:

Image chapter 8

VV.8. If the simulation looks correct, click on the Save icon at the top menu bar.

VV.9. Note the document for posted transaction in lower left corner of the window.

Image chapter 8

VV.10.   If you double-click that notification, new window will open, from which you can copy the number of the document.

Image chapter 8

VV.11.   Associated costs: Standard associated costs should be included in all new assets received from the 1st January 2015. The current rate of standard associated costs is 4% for volume 1.

If you also need to post Standard Associated Cost (4%) separately from the original Asset Cost, you can repeat the ABNAN capitalization, with all parameters the same, but using 4% of the amount, and using corresponding GL Account, in this case 77299080. Corresponding screens would then look as follows:

VV.11.1.   In Transaction data tab - Amount is 4% of the Asset Cost:

Image chapter 8

VV.11.2.   In Additional details tab - Note the GL Account used:

Image chapter 8

VV.11.3.   Simulated posting will look as follows:

Image chapter 8

VV.11.4.   If this asset pertains to a WBS Element or Internal Order, you will need to manually add the WBSE or IO to the Account Assignment of both the Posting Key 70 and Posting Key 50 line items (as done in the full example using Asset Cost).

VV.11.5.   If simulated document looks OK, you should post this transaction and record document number (as done in full example using Asset Cost).

VV.12.   As a result of these two postings Total Acquisition Value of the Asset will be the sum of these two amounts (original Asset Cost and Standard Associated Cost). Total Accumulated Ordinary Depreciation will also be the sum of the Original Asset Cost and Standard Associated Cost. Net Book Value will be calculated based on these Total Acquisition Value and Total Accumulated Ordinary Depreciation.

VV.13.   Planned values tab of the Asset Explorer (AW01N) will show these total values and posted transactions for prior year acquisition using T-code ABNAN, with Asset Value Date of first day of current fiscal year.

Image chapter 8

VV.14.   Posted values tab will show Acquisition Value, Accumulated Ordinary Depreciation and Net Book Value as of the beginning of the fiscal year, and it will show ordinary depreciation by month, starting with the month corresponding to the ABNAN posting date (Note that planned depreciation will show as posted only after Depreciation Run).

Image chapter 8

NOTE: If there is no Standard Associated Cost, only the Acquisition Cost will be processed and only one ABNAN posting will be necessary and shown.

4.5            Grant Funded Project Assets

4.5.1        Overview

This section outlines various considerations and processes related to Project Assets. These Assets are often exclusively Grant funded.

Grant funded assets can be purchased (using grant funds), donated as a part of the Grant, or Constructed (as a result of an Asset under Construction).

An important concept for Project assets is control. According the UN Policy Framework for IPSAS, control over assets arises when an entity can:

a.      use or otherwise benefit from the asset in pursuit of its objectives; and

b.      exclude or otherwise regulate the access of others to that benefit.

For further guidance that is important concerning project assets, please refer to:

·               Section 13: UN Policy Framework for IPSAS;

·               IPSAS Corporate Guidance - Property Plant and Equipment; and

·               IPSAS Corporate Guidance - Funding Arrangements.

4.5.2        Assets Acquired Using Grant Funds

When an asset is acquired during the shopping cart process and it is a ZAST type material (that is the material was set up to be always capitalized based on the IPSAS capitalization thresholds), the asset will automatically be associated with the Grant and related Project (WBSE) or Internal Order. It is the actual cost of the asset that is charged to the Grant.

NOTE: Entities with lower capitalization thresholds of USD 5,000 for all items (including UNEP and UN-Habitat) are reminded that the users of the shopping carts need to manually select Account Assignment Category 'Asset' when the item is considered an asset for their entity. Refer to section 3.2.4 of Finance Manual Chapter on Expenses for the detail.

All other accounting actions, including depreciation, impairment and write off are statistical postings to the grant therefore they do not affect available budget.

If an item was purchased and it does not satisfy the criteria for control, that is it is not considered a UN asset, it should be manually derecognized.

4.5.3        Assets Donated to the Project by a Donor

Often assets are donated to a project by a Donor. If some of the items meet the criteria for capitalization of a UN Asset as explain earlier, these items need to be recognized.

Refer to section 4.3.5.4 of Finance Manual Chapter on Revenue from Non-Exchange Transactions: Processing of Goods In-Kind to ensure both the asset master, equipment master, and the income associated with this contribution in kind are recognized in timely manner.

NOTE: It is very important to ensure that any assets donated to the Grant (where the criteria of control are satisfied) are recorded as they are received.

The Inbound Receiver will only be able to 'post' the Goods Receipt in the current or prior month. This affects the capitalization date of the Asset (and as a result, depreciation calculation) as it is based on the posting date of the GR. NOTE: If assets are later discovered your Umoja Process Experts for Grants and Fixed Assets need to be consulted to ensure the asset is correctly recognized. Manually creating assets should only be considered where the effect on the depreciation calculation is material.

4.5.4        Assets Donated to Implementing Partners or End Beneficiaries at the End of a Project

At the end of a project if UN controlled assets are to be formally handed over to Implementing Partners, End Beneficiaries or other counterparts (so the items are no longer controlled by the UN under IPSAS), entities are reminded to follow procedures outlined in the Property Management Framework related to donation of equipment/assets. All retirement actions are tracked via using a Service Notification during which updates are made to the Equipment Master. For detail retirement process, refer to section 5.5.

4.5.5        Assets under Construction (AuC) - Substantive Capital Projects

Often the UN undertakes Projects to build an Asset, and often upon completion the item is donated/handed over. Examples of this are Police Stations or Prisons built by UNODC, or Housing Projects by UN-Habitat. These projects are mostly grant funded and they often satisfy the criteria for recognition as a UN Asset and as such are recognized as an Asset under Construction (AuC).

The AuC end to end process:

Image chapter 8

The AuC process is exactly the same as any other AuC projects and the Users are advised to follow sections under 4.2.

Note that the IDC batch will charge indirect costs on top of direct costs to the cost collector. This percentage is defined when the Grant is set up. These amounts are not capitalized into the cost of the final asset but are settled (statistically) to the cost center.

Note also that if the Project is closed before IDC is run, the IDC batch will fail. For this reason it is recommended that projects are only closed at the end of the month subsequent to the month with final charges. For example, if you have charges in March, then close the project only at the end of April.

If at the end of the project the AuC asset is immediately donated, then the final asset is created, the settlement rule is updated (with this asset number) and a settlement of the final asset is done, the project is marked TECO, the final asset is retired and an accounting adjustment is recorded.

In this case, there is no need to create sub-assets. Simply create one final asset and ensure on the depreciation tab the depreciation key is updated to Z000 to ensure that depreciation does not post before you retire the asset.

Image chapter 8

4.5.6        Reclassification of the Write Off to Donation Expense

      1.                  Re-account the write off from GL 79671010 to GL 79691010 (Donation of Fixed Asset/Inventory to External Org) using a JV (FV50) IF APPLICABLE (i.e. where the amount should be accounted for as a donation rather than as a write off).

NOTE: Although this posting is statistical because this JV involves a Grant fund entities are reminded to use a valid WBSE to ensure that the Grant and Sponsored programme are correctly derived. Please select a WBSE in the AuC Project structure. Note if there are various Grants on the AuC the posting will be divided amongst the various WBSE.

      2.                  In order to do this the user will need to revert the status of the WBSE from MEC to RAB, using T-code CJ20N.

Image chapter 8

Back to top

      3.                  Post a Journal voucher using FV50; Doc type: SF.

Note to ensure correct derivation of statistical Commitment items using SF doc type (and the GL accounts below).

·         Posting date is ideally on the same date the retirement is posted:

·         Debit: GL 79691010 Donation of Fixed Asset/Inventory to External Org

·         Credit: GL 79671010 Write Off Fixed Asset Scrapping FM Stat

·         Amount: The total amount of the donated Asset

·         Enter the Fund and the WBSE

Image chapter 8

      4.                  Simulate the posting and Post.

Image chapter 8

Note that if properly posted the Grant and Sponsored Programme will be derived but the posting will be statistical.

5         Asset Downstream Transaction Processing

5.1            Depreciation of Asset

After the acquisition of PP&E, the next step in the lifecycle is depreciation. The depreciable amount of an asset is allocated on a straight line basis over its useful life (see summary of IPSAS accounting policies section of this document).

The depreciable amount is the cost of the asset, or other amount substituted for cost, less its residual value.

The residual value of PP&E is the estimated amount that the UN would currently obtain from disposal of the asset, after deducting the estimated costs of disposal, if the asset were already of the age and in the condition expected at the end of its useful life. The residual value is nil unless residual value is likely to be significant. Assets under construction and land are not subject to depreciation.

Back to top

Depreciation of an asset ceases when the asset is fully depreciated or derecognized as stipulated in the IPSAS Standard.

Refer to the Corporate Guidance on Infrastructure Assets and the Corporate Guidance on Property, Plant and Equipment (excluding infrastructure assets) for more details.

The depreciation of assets is mainly reliant on the data stored in the Asset Master record, which indicates which assets are to be depreciated and provides the calculation parameters such as useful life, scrap value and the Depreciation Key. The Depreciation Key stores important depreciation parameters such as the depreciation method (straight line), period controls (when to start or stop depreciation), and default scrap value or percentage. The Depreciation Run is a periodic process run in the background of Umoja, which posts depreciation charges and increases the accumulated depreciation for each asset.

Note: This procedure can be run only once each month (therefore it can be run 12 times).

The depreciation run is always performed at company code level, in UNHQ only. Entities are required to ensure that the fixed asset master record are complete and transactions are such as impairment, write offs etc. have been recorded before the depreciation run is performed.

Image chapter 8

ZZ.  The process for depreciation is as follows:

ZZ.1.  Review and finalize any changes to the depreciation terms / Transaction Code: AS02

For any changes in the depreciation key, useful lives, or scrap values which impact depreciation, the changes must be done through asset master data before the depreciation run is performed.

ZZ.2.  Confirm/decide on mode of depreciation run (planned ordinary, re-run, restart) / Transaction Code: AFAB

ZZ.2.1.  Start the transaction using the menu path below or type AFAB in the T-code Command box and click Image chapter 8 to display the Depreciation Posting Run screen.

Image chapter 8

ZZ.2.2.  Before executing the depreciation run, the User must decide on the period (month) and the depreciation run mode and enter these parameters on the selection screen of the Depreciation Run.

Image chapter 8

ZZ.2.3.  The Depreciation Run can be performed in four modes:

Planned posting run

Re-Run

Restart Run

Unplanned posting run

ZZ.2.4.  Complete/review the following fields and select the depreciation run mode:

Field

Required/Optional/Conditional

Description

Fiscal Year

Required

Enter the year when the depreciation will be calculated.

Posting period

Required

Enter the posting period (usually should be 1 to 12) this corresponds the month in which the depreciation will be calculated and posted.

Planned Posting run

Required

Select this button if the depreciation run is to be performed only sequentially from month to month.

Re-run

Required

Select this button to post the delta values of the assets that will impact depreciation for the last period executed. This is possible only on the last period of the depreciation just run, not possible in the previous period postings.

Restart run

Required

This button must be selected when the system was stalled due to the errors in the update run. If errors occurred during an update run, the system will force the User to perform the depreciation run in the restart mode only.

Unplanned Posting run

Required

Select this button if, for whatever reason, you want to skip over one or more posting periods, you can do this by specifying an unplanned posting run. The system then creates postings for all the periods that were skipped, as well as for the period entered. The posting period that you specify, however, must fit into the posting cycle.

 

ZZ.3.  Execute the depreciation test run in foreground processing / Transaction Code: AFAB

ZZ.3.1.  The Depreciation Run is generally first executed in test run, in the system foreground. A foreground test run limits the number of assets being processed to only 1000 assets and provides immediate results to the user. Running the depreciation test run in the foreground will enable identification of any apparent errors that can be corrected immediately without waiting for the system to complete the process for all assets in background processing.

ZZ.3.2.  Click the Execute button to perform a test run.

Image chapter 8

ZZ.3.3.  The status of the depreciation run is then displayed. If there are errors in the depreciation run, a spool marked with red and status as 'Error' will be generated and an icon of this type will appear as shown in the screen shot below. Double click on this icon to see the detail of the error.

Note: Normally no error will be reported as Umoja will not allow documents to be posted which are not complete in all respects.

Image chapter 8

Back to top

ZZ.3.4.  If there are no errors, a clean test run report as shown below will be generated for readiness to run in the background.

Image chapter 8

ZZ.4.  Rectify the errors before starting to process depreciation run. / Transaction Code: AS02

If there are any errors identified in the foreground processing, the system will identify the cause of the error and the asset master data record that it pertains to. The User will be required to edit the asset master record to rectify the error before proceeding to the next test.

Note: Any other errors outside of the AS02 transaction code will need to be rectified using the relevant transactions.

ZZ.5.  Execute depreciation run in test mode in background for all assets / Transaction Code: AFAB

ZZ.5.1.  If there are no errors identified in the foreground processing or they have been rectified, the User will execute the test run for all assets in background processing.

ZZ.5.2.  Click the Back button. To run it in the background, click the Program menu, and then Run in Background.

ZZ.5.3.  Click the System menu. A popup window appears. Select LOCL as the Output Device and click OK.

ZZ.5.4.  Click the Immediate button and the Save button.

Image chapter 8

ZZ.6.  Verify the depreciation amounts proposed to be posted / Transaction Code: AFAB

ZZ.6.1.  Once the test mode for all assets is complete, verify that the amounts to be posted have been calculated properly.

ZZ.6.2.  After the job is performed, check it by clicking the System menu and Own Jobs.

Image chapter 8

ZZ.6.3.  Then, click the Spool Image chapter 8 button.

Image chapter 8

ZZ.6.4.  Review the report in the Type column. Click the Job log button to view errors and description.

Image chapter 8

ZZ.7.  Execute actual run / Transaction Code: AFAB

ZZ.7.1.  After all checks are complete and no errors exist, click the Back button to go to the Depreciation Posting Run screen.

ZZ.7.2.  Uncheck Test Run under Parameters for Test Run. Perform the same steps for the background run. Note: This will run as an actual posting.

Image chapter 8

Based on the asset master records, the depreciation entries will be automatically determined. This will post the accounting entries in the financial accounting ledger as follows (example).

5.2            Impairment of Assets

Throughout and at year end, the organization should assess events and determine whether there is an indication of impairment of an asset. If any such indication exists, the organization will perform a detailed impairment test and recognize impairment lost. An impairment loss is recognized in the Statement of Financial Performance for the amount by which the asset's carrying amount exceeds its recoverable service amount. The recoverable service amount is the higher of an asset's fair value less costs to sell and value in use.

The organization will assess the need for impairment reviews for items of PP&E through three different processes:

·               The recognition of impairments throughout the year triggered by certain events;

·               An annual strategic assessment of high-level impairment indications; and

·               A check of certain assets as part of the physical verification process.

It has been decided that an assessment of whether an indicator of impairment exists will only be performed for such PP&E with carrying values exceeding the following thresholds:

Asset class

Threshold

Computer and IT equipment, vehicles, machinery and equipment, furniture and fittings

>USD 25,000

Land, buildings and infrastructure assets

>USD 500,000

 

The details requirements and processes on impairment refer to the Corporate Guidance on Impairment and Property, Plant and Equipment.

5.2.1        Review Notifications for Impairment

Both the FA.15 and FA.16 roles can review and report on Notifications (IW59), however only the FA.15: Financial Accounting: Asset Accounting Users can post the actual impairment.

AAA.   Steps to review notification for impairment / Transaction Code: IW59

5.3            Manual Adjustment to Accumulated Depreciation

This section details the procedure for the adjustments to accumulated depreciation in asset accounting. It covers both positive and negative adjustments to accumulated depreciation.

All entities requiring adjustments to accumulated depreciation must first obtain clearance from OPPBA Accounts Division in writing before running either transaction.

This process should not be followed in the cases where a minor adjustment to accumulated depreciation posted in the current year is required as a result of an adjustment of useful live (in this case the fixed asset accountant can simply adjust useful life, and check the planned depreciation adjustment).

Examples of where the process can be applied to adjust accumulated depreciation include:

·               Year-end closing activities; to post adjustments to accumulated depreciation (reduce accumulated depreciation, i.e., post negative values). An example is write-back of accumulated depreciation due to a revaluation of remaining useful life which affects prior fiscal years. In this case the contra account for the posting to accumulated depreciation is the current year depreciation expense (due to immateriality).

·               Posting depreciation manually; that is not using Umoja to calculate and automatically post depreciation when depreciation is run centrally. Entities can only use this method after approval of accounts division as Umoja has been set up to automatically post depreciation based on the useful life assigned to the IPSAS sub class of the asset. An application of this is the Vienna International Center (VIC), where UNIDO administer the building and provide lump sum postings to UNOV to recognize their portion of cost and accumulated depreciation for financial statement reporting purposes only.

Both procedures are performed by Financial_Accounting: Asset_Accounting_Senior_User (FA.16) enterprise role.

5.3.1        Reduce Accumulated Depreciation

FFF.      Procedure for reducing the accumulated depreciation / Transaction Code: ABZU

FFF.1.   Log in to Umoja ECC. This can be done only by Asset Accounting Senior User role (FA.16).

FFF.2.   Execute transaction code ABZU to start the transaction.

FFF.3.   In the Write-up: Initial Screen enter:

·         Correct Asset number

·         Enter current Document Date

·         Enter current Posting Date (according to the fiscal year you need to post to)

·         Enter or confirm Posting Period (must correspond to Posting Date)

·         Enter or confirm Transaction Type 700 (Write-up ordinary and special depreciation)

Image chapter 8

FFF.4.   Press Enter to proceed to the next screen.

FFF.5.   In Create Asset Transaction screen enter Asset Value Date (usually 1 January of current year), the adjustment value, and Text. Document Type must always be AA.

Image chapter 8

Back to top

FFF.6.   Click on Simulate Image chapter 8 button, or chose Extras from the top menu, and then Simulate.

FFF.7.   Review lines from simulated data for posting and confirm all OK. If applicable, select the button for Additional account assignment and populate any missing elements - see next step for details.

Image chapter 8

FFF.8.   If this asset does not pertain to a WBS Element or Internal Order (often referred only as Order in this function), you may skip to the next step.

If, however, the asset was capitalized against an WBS Element or an Internal Order, you'll need to add the WBS Element / Internal Order number to the posting manually.

The WBS Element or Internal Order must be added to the two line items with Posting Key 70 and Posting Key 50.

In order to see WBS Element and Internal Order, you may want to modify current report layout and show additional fields, as shown in the following screenshot (you can save the layout for future use, if you want to).

Image chapter 8

FFF.8.1.   Click on the line with Posting Key 70 (usually Line #1), and then click on the Additional account assignment button.

FFF.9.   Once you are satisfied with the simulated outcome, click on Save (Post) or select Transaction from the menu, and then Post.

FFF.10.  If you need to make corrections, click on green Back button, and you can make changes directly on the screen. Note that contra-account posting is done automatically by the system.

Alternatively, you can click on Line Items. Then, you will see only one transaction line, and you can double-click it to modify the transaction. This will, however, allow you to modify only the amount.

Image chapter 8

FFF.11.  Once you have successfully posted the transaction, you will receive confirmation message with the Document Number in the lower left corner of the screen.

Image chapter 8

FFF.12.  You can immediately see the adjustment in the Asset Explorer (AW01N) on the Write-up line and its effect on the Net book value.

FFF.13.  You can also see adjusted planned depreciation.

Image chapter 8

FFF.14.  If you want to further review posted document, you can either double-click transaction shown in the first Asset Explorer screen, or invoke T-code FB03 and use Document Number recorded after posting the adjustment. Remember that from there, you can also see FM, Grant, and other relevant documents when selecting Environment from top menu, and then selecting Document Environment and then Accounting Documents.

Image chapter 8

NOTE: If there is a requirement to adjust the Asset Useful Life, please follow standard procedure, as described in procedure for Asset Impairment, by maintaining Asset Master Record and creating new interval, and recording adjusted useful life.

5.3.2        Record Accumulated Depreciation Manually

This is the procedure for manual Recording of Accumulated Depreciation. In order for the system to be able to accept such posting, fixed asset being affected must not be subject to standard Straight Line Depreciation (ZSLA), but instead must be set to not be depreciated (Z000 - No Depreciation), from the acquisition/capitalization date.

·               For fixed assets where accumulated depreciation is recorded only manually, they will be in continuous 'No Depreciation' status.

·               For those fixed assets where this is one‑time adjustment and the depreciation method needs to be reverted to ZSLA, please raise an iNeed ticket requesting assistance for Adjustment of Accumulated Depreciation. It should be addressed to Asset Accounting / Fixed Assets. This kind of adjustment will be used in very limited circumstances.

Adjustment procedure is performed as follows:

      1.                  Confirm Depreciation Key is Z000 - No Depreciation.

·         Check Depreciation Areas tab using transaction AS03, and confirm that the Fixed Asset has Z000 set as Depreciation Key and that it is in correct Interval (from the acquisition/capitalization date or from date 01.01.1900).

·         If Depreciation Key and Interval are correct proceed with Adjustment.

      2.                  Adjustment: Post fixed amount of the accumulated depreciation for affected fixed asset, with specific value date. Use T-code ABMA - this has to be done by Asset Accounting Senior User role FA.16.

5.3.3        Review Depreciation Key

GGG. Steps to review depreciation key / Transaction Code: AS03

GGG.1. Log in to Umoja ECC, using Asset Accounting Senior User role (FA.16). Note that Asset Accounting User (FA.15) can review and correct.

GGG.2. Execute transaction code AS03 to review Asset Master Record.

GGG.3. In the Deprec Areas tab ensure Depreciation Key (DKey) is set to Z000 and that Depreciation Start (ODep Start) for Z000 is before effective date of Adjustment.

5.4            Asset Transfer

5.4.1        Overview

This section details the procedure for the transfer of an asset between account assignments as a result of internal sale or internal donation. (i.e. between FI balancing elements fund, grant, business area, segment).

Budget relevant transfers can also be thought of as Internal Sales of assets (the receiving office pays for the asset they are receiving).

Non-budget relevant transfers can also be thought of as an Internal Donation of assets (the receiving office does not pay for the asset they receive).

The Asset Transfer transaction is executed by the FA.16 User (Asset Accounting Senior User). Review of Notifications and preparation of Upload Spreadsheet are to be done by FA.15 User (Asset Accounting User).

Aside from the sales and donations scenarios, the transfer process is also used to transfer value from one asset master to another with no change needed in the account assignments of the asset. An example would be when the asset has been recorded against the wrong asset class and you want to associate the cost and accumulated depreciation to a new asset class (this will also transfer the equipment master link onto the final asset master). The same process applies if you are transferring a newly received asset to an existing asset as it should be part of an existing system, or you are simply replacing part of that system.

This procedure should be used for instances where an entity needs to associate an Asset with a different Umoja coding block; including changes in Business Area, Fund, Grant, Cost center, WBSE. The procedure and T-code is the same for Budget Relevant and Non-Budget Relevant Transfer (internal sale/donation), however, different Transfer Variants are to be utilized. The Business will decide the budget relevance of the posting to decide whether budget should be transferred or not.

Note 1: Before Actual Asset Transfer T-code is executed, it is necessary to create Funds Pre-Commitment and Funds Commitment. There should be a task defined in the Notification for this purpose. Communicate details to respective Finance Officer on the receiving side and mark task completed when Funds Commitment activities are successfully completed. You can proceed with Asset Transfer while Funds Commitment is in progress. However, all relevant document numbers so that you can refer to these transactions when recording the Revenue.

Note 2: After Asset Transfer is completed, it will be necessary to manually record the Revenue. Please communicate with the respective Finance Officer on the receiving side to ensure any relevant revenue postings are recorded and, if necessary, funds are transferred from Non-Spendable to Spendable accounts. Keep the related Task in Notification open, until this is completed.

Note on balancing postings: In the case where FI balancing elements are crossed (BA, Fund, Grant, Segment) the system generates a balancing posting:

·               If only Segment (derived from Functional Area) or Business Area are crossed then the balancing posting is to cash (11001000 - Csh MAIN Pool).

·               If fund and/or grant are crossed and it is non-budget relevant (internal Donation - Z2) the system generates a balancing posting to 19401010(AR Due from/to). These amounts will later be cleared through another posting (using T-code FV50) using SF Doc type.

·               If fund and/or grant are crossed and it is budget relevant (internal Sale - Z4) the system generates a balancing posting to 19401010(AR Due from/to). A Funds Commitment to block the funds of the receiver is raised. These Funds Commitment will later be charged through another posting (using T-code FV50) using SF Doc type.

5.4.2        Review Notifications for Transfer

5.5            Asset Retirement

5.5.1        Overview

Retirement is the last life cycle in the management of an asset. The values (both cost and depreciation) should be derecognized from the Statement of Financial Position upon disposal of the asset. Upon disposal a gain or loss, representing the difference between the carrying amount of asset and the proceeds from disposal of the asset, if any, should be recognized in the Statement of Financial Performance.

This section details the procedure for the retirement of an asset. Depending if it is a Retirement with or without Revenue and depending on Retirement (Disposal) Method, we are using different procedures, T-codes and Transaction Types.

NOTE: Both the FA.15 and FA.16 roles can review, report on, and update Notifications (IW59) and run asset reports, however only the FA.15 Financial Accounting: Asset Accounting Users can post the actual impairment.

5.5.2        Retirement without Revenue

Methods of Retirements without Revenue can be:

·               Write-Off (including scrapping)

·               Donation

·               Not Found

The procedure and T-codes are the same for all three methods, however, different Transaction Types are to be utilized. Equipment User Status will differ based on the Disposal Method (this information can be found within the equipment record).

NOTE: Tables with breakdown of Retirement Process, Notifications and Transaction Types are provided in Appendix A for your easier reference.

5.5.3        Retirement with Revenue (Sale)

There are two steps in FI:

1.                   ABAON (the asset accounting transaction, discussed below)

The Sales Order or if sold by UNDP recording a UJ document to clear the posting from the SCA. The FI posting of the Sales Order is DR Accounts Receivable (GL defined by customer type) CR 69101020. The FI Posting for ABAON is DR Accum. Depreciation CR Asset Cost DR/CR Loss on sale/Gain on Sale DR 69101020 (postings to 69101020 offset one another).

2.                   In the case where the asset is sold by UNDP and the funds from the sales will be received via the Service Clearing Account (SCA) NO Sales Order will be raised.

Also on service notification the UJ document from the SCA file should be included where possible in the description. Ensure the sales amount you are using is net of UNDP fees where applicable.

NOTE: Tables with breakdown of Retirement Process, Notifications and Transaction Types are provided in Appendix B for your easier reference.

5.5.3.1  Review Notification for Retirement

SSS.13.  Review each approved (REWA - Review Approved; DINP - Disposal in Process). Review the notification to confirm all relevant documents (approvals) are included and information is sufficient. You can view Notification with double-click on Notification Number.

Image chapter 8

SSS.14.  Confirm Retirement Task has been created in the Notification, in Tasks tab, and assigned to Asset Accountant.

Image chapter 8

SSS.15.  For all applicable Notifications, from the report itself, identify all Asset Numbers for Retirement, and corresponding Notification numbers and methods of retirement. You can verify Asset number in Notification, in Location data tab (note the asset number).

Image chapter 8

5.5.3.2  Run the Equipment Asset Report (Review the Status)

TTT. Steps to generate the report / Transaction Code: ZAAEQASREC

TTT.1. Execute transaction code ZAAEQASREC to run report for Equipment and Asset Reconciliation. Use Get Variant Image chapter 8 and select User Variant ZEQAS.

TTT.2. Expand All Selections Image chapter 8 to limit selection of Equipment/Assets. You can also restrict by Business area or other specific elements if required.

Image chapter 8

TTT.3. Alternatively: If you know Asset numbers (if you earlier exported from the notifications), the easiest way is to copy them and paste in Multiple Selection, using Upload from clipboard.

Image chapter 8

Image chapter 8

Image chapter 8

TTT.4. Look for codes and descriptions in Status Number in User Status List and in User Status Description.

Image chapter 8

TTT.5. The status relevant to retirement by sale is EQSL: Write-Off - Sale.

TTT.6. Find revenue for Asset Sale, on IW59 Report, locate Sales Order number and double-click on it.

Image chapter 8

TTT.7. In the Sales Order header, locate Net value to be recorded in Asset Retirement as revenue.

Image chapter 8

NOTE: As mentioned in the case where the sale proceeds are collected by UNDP there will be NO Sales Order. The Notification itself should have recorded, in the Sales area, corresponding UNDP Office Business Partner/Customer Number in the Sold-To Party field. The revenue to be used will not be shown in the Notifications Report, nor there will be associated Sales Order, instead the revenue should be based on the value in the UJ Document from the SCA file. The Senior Asset Accountant will reference however, the UJ Document from the SCA file in the Service Notification, if known, otherwise they should note in the description that the proceeds were collected by UNDP. The UJ document will be posted to offset the posting in GL 69101020. The FI posting of the UJ Document is DR 18105020 Advance UNDP Pay Agent Request CR 69101020. The FI Posting for ABAON is DR Accum. Depreciation, CR Asset Cost and DR/(CR) Loss on sale/(Gain on Sale) DR 69101020 (postings to 69101020 offset one another).

VVV.4.   Save Notification and exit.

5.5.6        Reminder Record Receivable/Allot Funds

As mentioned the Receivable should be processed as well as a part of the process. In most cases (where the entity is receiving money from the customer directly) a Sales Order will be raised.

In the Case were UNDP sold the asset and the funds are received via the Service Clearing Account (SCA), a sales order is not raised. However a UJ document is posted to record the receivable and the offsetting account is 69101020 as earlier mentioned. Refer to section 3.2.5.5 of Finance Manual Chapter on Accounts Payable for UNDP advance and reconciliation processes.

When posting ABAON there would have been a posting to 69101010, (NSP Gain Sale Fixed Asset). If the revenue is however spendable, an FV50 document will need to be raised to move the amount from SP Gain Sale Fixed Asset 68001010. Please consult with FM colleagues (or the relevant Budget Office) to determine whether funds received are spendable or non-spendable.

Tasks should be open in the Service notification related to the sales order (or UJ document if UNDP collected the sales proceeds) and budget allocation (if relevant) to ensure no step is forgotten.

5.6            Physical Verification of PP&E

Physical verification is an important step that occurs throughout the lifecycle of PP&E. In line with IPSAS requirements, physical verification inspections shall be performed at regular intervals, at least once per fiscal year per item, in order to ensure proper controls.

A two way verification - meaning a comparison between the assets in the system and the assets physically identified, as well as a comparison between assets physically identified and those in the system - is required for a complete verification of assets. Staff conducting the physical verification shall be independent of those responsible for custody of the assets. Records shall be kept indicating which assets have been validated and the dates on which they were validated.
