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 2 – From the Goods and Services screen, click the Soft Commitment button to enter Soft Commitment details
- 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.
