Managers are budget holders, and they can give spot awards according to their budgets. Howevere, managers get "no budget error" a lot while creating spot awards. System checks all managers in the hierarchy and their budgets while a manager is giving spot award. If any upper manager in hierarchy used up all his/her budget, system gives 'This employee does not have a budget holder' error and do not let to give spot award.
We are asking for a change in system logic to include only budget holder's budget in system controls. I submitted an improvement request. I am kindly asking for your votes.
