Contracts & Grants Invoices (CINV) can be created with a batch job that can be run nightly or manually using the Contracts & Grants Invoice Lookup. When using the Lookup, a Fund Manager will only see their awards that are available for billing. If you would look like to see all the Awards for which you are a Fund Manager, use the Award Lookup. One of the search fields is Fund Manager.
