Department Lookup for Projects, Resources and Financial Plans Post-Upgrade

We have recently upgraded from PPM 14.3 to 15.3, and have only just begun to get reports that my users are unable to alter the (Financial) Department for their Projects, set the Department for their Resources, and set the Department for Financial Plans for records that they are entering Manually (when the Department is listed as one of the Grouping Attributes).

I am (reasonably) certain that the Access Groups assigned to my users weren't altered over the course of the upgrade. As well, I didn't pick up mention in the 15.3 release documents citing a need to update Groups.

I have determined that adding the Global permission "Department - View - All" to all data entry user Groups resolves the issue, but this also adds the menu 'Home -> Organization -> Departments' to users' access.

Has anyone also encountered this problem?

Is there anyone with potentially a better solution to this issue?

The additional menu doesn't represent a problem, since it is view-only, but it would be nice to not have to explain several hundred times that the appearance of the new menu item is not a cause for alarm.
