Issue/Introduction

Since we moved to GCP, the reporting that query the PPA_WIP table is not correct. Portlets based on queries that look to PPA_WIP table are not correct either.

Data is missing for months like September or November.

The above is due to defect below:

PPA_WIP month_begin values are not correct for months with 30 calendar days (GCP environment)

STEPS TO REPRODUCE:

1. Create a project 
2. Financially enable it
3. Add a team member that is financially enabled.
4. Home > Financial Management > Transaction Entry
5. Create two transactions for that team member/project
   Transaction 1: Transaction Date = 01-May-2020 
   Transaction 2: Transaction Date = 01-June-2020 
6. Run Post Transactions and Post to WIP jobs
7. Check the PPA_WIP table and note the month_begin column

Expected results: Transaction in May is correct. Month_begin is 2020-05-01 00:00:00.0 / Transaction in June to be 2020-06-01 00:00:00.0
Actual results: Transaction in May is correct. Month_begin is 2020-05-01 00:00:00.0 / Transaction in June is incorrect, being 2020-05-31 00:00:00.0
