How To:  Create a One-Time Soft Commitment for Goods & Services in CMS

Before You Start

Defining a One-Time Soft Commitment will allow you to project a one-time purchase of goods or services. Note:  The One-Time Soft Commitment amount will roll forward from month to month until manually deleted. Burdening (IDC/Infrastructure) associated with the commitment is automatically calculated by CMS.

  Step 3 – Define the accounts (PTAs) and expenditure type to which you want to forecast the expense

  • You can now see the Soft Commitment from the Account Overview screen and view uncommitted account balances with or without CMS Soft Commitments.
  • Faculty will have the option of viewing Soft Commitment data in the Faculty Financial Inquiry Tool (FFIT) the day after the Soft Commitment is entered in CMS.
