GASB 34/35 Asset Accounting Setup

Overview of the GASB 34/35 Asset Accounting Setup

GASB 34/35 asset accounting enables users to report capital acquisitions as expenditures in fund statements and as depreciating assets in the government- or university-wide statements while continuing to charge the acquisitions to expense accounts in Oracle Purchasing and Oracle Payables.

To meet GASB 34/35 asset accounting requirements, users must set up a new request set that includes the following concurrent processes in the sequence indicated:

Users must define the parameters for the concurrent processes and schedule the request set to run overnight to capture all daily Payables activity. Users can also set up the option to print all output results.

Note: Context sensitive help for these concurrent processes is available when running the processes individually. To enable context sensitive help when running the concurrent processes as part of the new GASB 34/35 request set, users must customize the online help files to add the anchor name. To customize online help, see Customizing Oracle Applications Help, Oracle Applications System Administrator's Guide.. Users can also consult the online documentation.

Payables Approval

The Payables Approval process enables users to automate their approval cycle through automatic approval submission.

Create Accounting Process

The Create Accounting process creates accounting entries for Payables transactions.

Update Assets Tracking Flag

The Update Assets Tracking Flag process automatically checks the Track As Asset flag for all invoice distributions containing object codes in a predefined range of values for recording capital expenditures. The process selects the Track As Asset flag for all invoice distributions that meet the following conditions:

An output report is generated that lists all invoice distributions with the Track As Asset flag automatically selected.

Mass Additions Create

The Mass Additions Create process transfers capital invoice line distributions from Payables to Assets.

Update Asset Type

The Update Asset Type process changes the asset type from Expensed to Capitalized or CIP for each expensed asset within the range of accounts brought into Assets by the Mass Additions process. This process changes the asset type for all lines in the Mass Additions table that meet the following conditions:

An output report is generated that lists all assets whose types were changed from Expensed to Capitalized or CIP.
