Procedure Steps [Top]

This activity is performed whenever an award installment, of a type that is monitored by the University Budget Office, (UBO) needs to be created or modified.

As always, an increase in one award must be offset with a decrease in another award. One exception is if the offset is to revenues or transfers budgeted in Oracle General Ledger, (OGL). In that situation, the second section of the Installment Creation Or Modification Form should be completed with the OGL information.

The UBO cannot decrease an award installment until the project funding and budgets have been reduced so steps 1-3 MUST precede step 4. Conversely, award and project managers cannot increase project funding or budgets until the installment is increased, so steps 10-12 cannot be completed before step 8.

Project Manager

1. The project manager must decrease the award budget being reduced; then submit and baseline the award budget.

2. The project manager must submit and baseline the project budget being reduced.

Award Manager

3. The award manager must reduce the funding of the project being reduced.
