    Oracle Grants- Funding Source
    Oracle Grants- Funding Source

    Hi Gurus,

    I am facing a typical situation in Payables & it is connected to Projects & Grants (Awards).

    We are trying to create a Project related invoice, with project details at the line level. One of the Field to select there is 'Funding Source', however in that field what we can select (based on the project & contract), is the name of the Sponsorer & not the 'Funding Sources' attached in that award (If there are more than 1 Funding source used in that award). 

    Now one of the suggested approach is to make the Funding Source as Others in the Award, but I am facing issue in that. Whenever I am trying to attach a Sponsorer to the award , it is automatically making the Funding Source as External.

    Are we missing any configurations ? Any suggestions ?

      External funding source is always the sponsor. There can be only one external sponsor for an award. Are you trying to associate one or more internal funding sources? Can you share the internal funding sources assigned to the award (Edit Award Details -> Financial tab)? If using internal funding source, first you need to assign to the award and then to the award/project in the Manage Award Projects train stop.

        Hi, thanks for your reply. As suggested by Oracle, there is something called Other as Funding Source, apart from External or Internal. I am trying to figure that out.

      Has anyone used multi-funding for research projects; is it true that an Award can only have one external funding source (primary sponsor) i.e. billing to just one customer and only internal funding sources can be multiple? Is this understanding correct?

      Attached is the oracle whitepaper section quoting the above.

        Yes, an Award has one external funding source (Sponsor) and can have multiple internal sources.

        Hi Anshuman Banerjee,

        It's an Intended Functionality that, one Award can have only one External Funding Source ( Primary Sponsors/ Customers ), and can have multiple Internal Funding Sources ( Departments as per req ). We can't bill the contract to many Customers.
