Symptoms

Incorrect burden amounts on a number of expenditure items is resulting in incorrect amounts on the corresponding invoices

Example:

Invoice #1 is generating at 100,042.94 but it should be for 100,034.32.

The variance of (8.62) is in the F&A burden calculation.

The Award has an Override Schedule to change the F&A rate from 50% to 25%.

When the invoice generates, it is calculating some items at the new rate of 25% and calculating others at the old rate of 50%

The variance results from a set of freight lines that are separately imported after the others. These should use the new rate, but they are using the old rate which is causing the variance.

 
The F&A amount in the Expenditures actuals form and the Grant activity summary report is 5886.56, however, the Invoice has 5895.18.

The reporting script from <patch 15954920> generated gmsbtcrp_output.txt.  This identified a data issue related to the burden on the project and award needing an adjustment of  8.62;  however, the data fix scripts from the patch are not fixing this issue.
