Reference table for codes that identify invoice line items in the BRIM system.
These codes are also General Ledger parent object codes (roll-up groups) for
objects that identify assets, liabilities, revenues, or expenses. The codes
run from SB01 through SB41. There is one record per SB- code.
Displaying the description of the invoice line, rather than the SB_OBJ_PARENT
code that appears in a related table. ("Don't show the codes in the report.
Show the English instead.")
||Indexed Data Elements
- When decoding an SB_OBJ_PARENT, decide whether you want the 12-character
SB_OBJ_PARENT_SHORT_DESC (the description that appears on BRIM's Enter Detail
Invoice Screen) or the 35-character SB_OBJ_PARENT_LONG_DESC (the description
that appears on the invoice created by BRIM).
- Although the values for SB_OBJ_PARENT are the same as a subset of the General
Ledger object codes, their descriptions in BRIM are maintained separately
from the descriptions of the object codes in BEN Financials. The value for
an SB- code's SB_OBJ_PARENT_SHORT_DESC or SB_OBJ_PARENT_LONG_DESC may not
match the value for its OBJECT_DESC in the OBJECT_CODES table.
- The BRIM_EXP_CODES table is replaced nightly. It is unlikely, but possible,
that the same report run on different days could return different values for
the description for a given SB- code.
The AREXDS table in BRIM, the Billing and Receivables Information Management
system used by the Office of Research Services.
BRIM is used to track award payments due and received for sponsored project
funds where the sponsors either send payments as they are billed for project
expenses, or send payments based on a schedule. BRIM does not track sponsored
project funds where payment is handled via letters of credit.
