After applying HRMS family pack K (11i.HR_PF.K and 11i.HR_PF.K.DELTA.5) HRMS functional consultant updated that he is not able to access Approvals Management Responsibility. There are certain changes with this family pack. To overcome this issue please follow below steps as described.

Error message while accessing responsibility:

Content-type: text/html; charset=WINDOWS-1256 Location:

1) AME responsibility cannot be accessed.

This issue is described in Metalink Note 336901.1 Ext/Pub Oracle Approvals Management
Implementation Guide (Minipack B)
The note also explains that the issue is caused by a setup similar to what you have.
Chapter 2 Implementing Oracle Approvals Management , section : AME Roles and Responsibilities

Action Plan:

From the Note:
This section gives a step-by-step illustration of adding the two AME responsibilities to the user.
1. Login as SYSADMIN user.

3. Save the record.
4. Switch the responsibility to User Management and Navigate to the Users function.
5. Query for the newly created user.
6. Click on the update action from the result table.
7. In the Update User page, click on the Assign Roles button
8. In the search window, query for Approval%
9. Following five roles will be displayed.
10. Select all five roles.
11. After selecting the Roles, provide the Justification for the role and the effective date.
12. After completing the action, you can query back the same user and can verify the list of roles
being attached to the user.

19. Clicking Next will take you to the `Select Object Data Context¿ page.
