Goodbye T-Codes! An Intro to R12 Subledger Accounting (SLA) for Federal Financials

Posted on 30-Sep-08. Filed under: R12 | Tags: , , , |

I thought it would be appropriate to upload the presentation I gave with Cary Payne (i360 Technologies) at the Collaborate ’08 FEDSIG meeting in Denver.  The presentation’s goal was to provide an introduction to SLA Concepts, Capabilities and Terminology with a focus on relevant topics to Federal Financials customers.  We presented how R12 Subledger Architecture allows us to finally improve accounting processes & accuracy through retiring the the old USSGL Transaction Code model.  Its important to note that implementing SLA is required for Federal Financials customers upgrading to R12 as USSGL Transaction Codes are no longer an option for accounting events.  And from my perspective, that’s definitely a good thing!

The presentation agenda is comprised of:

  • SLA Basic Terminology and Benefits to Federal Financials
  • Accounting Methods Builder (AMB) Components
  • Demonstration (sorry you missed the live version, but screen shots are included in the presentation)
  • Standard SLA Reports and Reconciliation Tools
  • Secondary Ledgers
  • Other SLA and AMB Components/Features
  • Implementing SLA
  • Additional Resources

There’s a lot to SLA and the hardest part for me was figuring out where to start in trying to understand it.  Once the pieces of the concepts fall into place, its not too bad.  Please see the click the link to view the presentation and I hope it provides a valuable introduction to these concepts.  It was a great experience to figure it out and I hope others can benefit.

Quick question: In this note you have mentioned that Transaction Codes(USSGL) are no longer used in Federal Financials R12. Can you please throw some light on this Metalink Note (Enabling Oracle Public Sector Financials Functionality in Release 12 (Doc ID 452648.1)) where it says that “Govetizing” the Application will let us use the USSGL Transaction codes. Am I reading the Metalink note wrong? Please help me understand.


Good question. Transaction Codes can still be used for GL Journals in R12 if desired either via manual journal entry or interfaced journals by populating gl_interface.ussgl_transaction_code. But that’s really the only place they can be used (although the R12 FV Budget Trans Type/SubType Account Pairs setup mirrors the old T-Code form setup…its really XLA that is generating those entries). For any PO, AP or AR subsidiary transactions, SLA needs to be used instead of T-Codes since there is no way to pass a T-Code through the XLA tables for it to be exploded in GL as part of the gl_je_lines creation. Hope that helps.
