Suspense Definitions

Types of Suspense Transactions

Source Source suspense transactions are transactions that are programmed to return to the source department responsible for the feeder. Since the CNAC will not be the same as the original transaction, end users will not be able to view or report on these transactions. A transaction from any other feeder can also be returned to the source department if the ORG in the account cannot be determined because the old account number is incorrect or missing, or because the BEN Financials account contains an invalid ORG value.

Organization Organization suspense accounts are transactions that contain invalid, expired, or disabled segment values in the account. The transaction is returned to the CNAC and ORG from the original account. The OBJECT code corresponds to the suspense OBJECT code specific to the feeder. PROGRAM and CREF always are set to 0000. The account which failed appears on the Description line of the journal entry.

IMPORTANT: It is the responsibility of each organization to monitor the suspense transactions posted to their respective ORG. All transactions, except payroll, bursar, and gift transactions can be corrected in BEN Financials, with a manual journal entry.
