    The Suspense Clearing process prevents invalid data from posting to the general ledger (SAP). It is a daily, manual process to move rejecting items to the proper posting location. Successful suspense clearance relies upon effective communication between various groups of controllers. Identification and resolution of root cause issues resulting in suspense is time consuming and challenging - many occur far upstream. Enforcement is a challenge – ensuring systems provide “good” reference data quality at point of origin is difficult – need methods to enforce correction of existing and new suspense causes.
