When running repackaging for Year Round Pell, to award the Second Pell for the first time, the results are not as expected, with the system awarding the second Pell item type starting in the wrong term(s), or for too much, or both.
The system should be awarding the correct additional eligibility based on what has been awarded in Pell already
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Identify student eligible for Second Pell, but package student at first
for only their First Pell eligibility
2. Set up repackaging plan to Validate First Pell and Increase Second Pell -
OR Validate both item types - using same disbursement plan for the Second
Pell as was assigned to the First Pell.
3. Auto-repackage the student with the plan
WHAT IS WORKING
In the scenario where a student has not previously been awarded either Pell, the system is able to correctly assign both Pell amounts in an initial packaging (not repackaging) plan. Manual awarding also works. Once the Second Pell has been awarded and posted for a non-zero amount, re-validating both item types via a repackaging plan will work. Finally, the issue occurs mostly when using a disbursement plan for the Second Pell that contains terms other than the one(s) where the Second Pell is being awarded; and a different disbursement plan, including ONLY the award term(s), will usually produce the correct results.
