How does the Over Commit and Over Expend work?


The system looks at the Net Allocation and the Over Commit/Expend % set.
The Over Commit and Over Expend % in the ledger should be set with 100% as the base - that is, commit 100% of the Net Allocation, plus an additional Over Commit/Expend percentage.

Additional Information

For example:
Net Allocation=$20,000.00
Over Expend Warning=105% (expend entire amount of fund + 5%)
105% of 20,000.00=21,000.00
The Over Expend Warning is triggered when there are $21,000 in Total Expenditures.
