The University of Kuali's system is not configured to feed position information from the University's payroll system (System Parameter 'EXTERNAL_POSITION_FEED_IND' is set to 'N'). (Feeding information from an external system means the local Position maintenance document is disabled and position maintenance is handled by the external system.)
Organization A at University of Kuali is planning to hire someone in the new fiscal year to perform tasks related to planning big fund raising events. This job in the organization (position) will be new in the coming year, and a budget for the salary needs to be created. A maintenance user for Organization A uses a Budget Construction Position maintenance document to create the new position. This enables the ability to fund the position as 'VACANT' in an account using Budget Construction Salary Setting.
