When having to repackage loan item types due to changes in fees, using External Awards was one recommended approach. However, this has been discovered to cause problems with subsequent processing of these awards. The EA flag set on an item type will prevent an item type from being reduced in situations where it should -- such as PLUS Loans for students that subsequently are given a PLUS Override, or Sub and Unsub loans that require a reduction due to the addition of previously sequenced item types which subsequently cause an overaward.
