Project costs. What is the best way to track planned and actual costs for labour and non-labour in the budget? How can these be rolled up into a program budget? How can the program budgets be rolled up into the organization budget?

2) To program budget these rolled from project budget automaticly if enabled Financial Management for program.

Re: Cost

Like the below way..................
1. All financial information entered in 1 place. e.g. all costs entered in the workplan only
2. All financial information to roll up to it's parent budget e.g. from a project to it's programme to it's department
3. Timesheets to be used and planned labour costs calculated
4. Planned and Actual labour costs for the same budget item must appear on the same row in the budget. e.g. if I plan to spend £50000 on a server, the actual cost for this item should appear in the same row on the budget as the planned cost.

Re: Cost

You can't get Planned and Actual labor costs for the same budget item to appear on the same row in the budget. If you roll in actuals from the work plan, they are only shown in the Totals because there is no way to assign them to the correct budget line item (side note: this is being fixed in 8.0). Same with non-labor costs. You can put these actuals in the work plan, but you cannot assign a budget catgory (line) that they should go to.
