Authorizations for Expenditures (AFEs)
Many organizations use Authorizations For Expenditures (AFEs) to request and reserve funds for a particular expense or project. AFEs can be related to capital projects, internal projects, and projects billed to clients or joint venture partners. Until now, Authorizations for Expenditures required a great deal of manual effort using Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) applications. Project Partners has developed an easy to use Authorization for Expenditure solution that extends the functionality of Oracle EBS Projects applications. This solution encompasses capital and indirect/expense projects using Oracle Project Costing, and optionally uses Oracle Project Billing to invoice these expenses to joint venture partners and/or customers. The behind-the-scenes functionality is robust and impressive but best of all is the simple, role-based user interface that makes the process easy.
