Allocation Management budget checking does not recognize existing budgets or perform budget checks correctly

When creating allocations, it's possible to turn on budget checking within business rules. When running the allocation in this scenario, either a message comes up specifying that the project (or projects) being used do not have a budget or the allocation allows transactions to be created that would push the project over budget.
We are currently evaluating this issue and will update this article when we have more information.

Steps to Duplicate

1. In GL > Records > Budgets > open Scenario ID that contains the existing project budget
2. Notice accounts [###-####-##] and  [###-####-##] are both listed. Go to Account view for each. Notice each has a budget with project used in allocation
3. Configuration > Business Rules > Allocation Management > Notice scenario ID 00 is selected and everything is set to warn when over budget (and warn if expenditure is created)
4. Allocation Management > Allocations > Open indirect cost allocation 
5. Notice Project XXX is selected with a rate
6. On the Destination accounts tab, notice the accounts from the budget are included
7. On the output options tab, notice the Post date is set for a post date in the year that falls within the budget dates
8. Select Pre-allocation report (or Allocate Now)
9. Receive message: The allocation for XXX distributes to account [###-####-##]', Project XXX, which does not have a budget. To cancel processing and correct this issue, click Cancel. Otherwise, click Ok to allow the expenditure.
