Pell item types are being removed from need summary in the following situations:

1) When running need summary validation - stand-alone, or as part of budgeting

2) When running a repackaging plan that does not also include a validation of the Pell item type

Need summary needs to accurately reflect what has been awarded.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Award Pell - validate and post
2. Invoke need summary validation, or repackaging plan that validates other item types, but not Pell

The problem ONLY occurs when the Pell item type is awarded using the split code formula Pell:User-defined splits. In this situation, need summary is correctly populated when doing 'normal' award validation, or anytime the Pell is explicitly (not passively) validated. The problem does not affect any other item types besides Pell.

The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, users see the need summary become incorrect after re-budgeting re-packaging students. Having inaccurate need summary can cause a wide variety of problems, and extra work to find and fix
