RF Grant Expenditure Export Award Level



The Research Foundation (RF) developed the customized Grant Expenditure Export report to provide a version of the Grant Sum that could be exported easily to Excel to meet the reporting needs of various sponsors by giving the capability to manipulate the data to meet the sponsor's needs. The RF Grant Expenditure Export Report does not contain header information and only displays the following required columns for sponsor reporting: Expenditure Type, Employee/Supplier Name, Expenditure Item Date, AP Invoice Number, AP Invoice Item Description/Employee Title, Purchase Order Number, Purchase Order Line Description, Check Number, Check Paid Date, and Expended/Refund Amount. It is used to provide the detailed backup documentation required by sponsors for financial and/or invoicing reports.
