Contracts & Grants Invoices are generally created via the contractsGrantsInvoiceDocumentJob which runs nightly. However, there may be a need to create a CBG Invoice manually using the Contracts & Grants Invoice lookup. Refer to the CGB - Manually Creating Contracts & Grants Invoice article for instructions.
The Contracts & Grants Invoice and the batch process create invoices in three different formats. Cost Reimbursable, Pre-Determined Billing Schedule and Milestone. The LOC Review process creates invoices in the Cost Reimbursable format.
The Contracts & Grants Invoice lookup will only show awards for which you are the fund manager and that are eligible for invoicing. If you would look like to see all the Awards for which you are a Fund Manager, use the Award Lookup.
CGB Invoice Document Layout
The following section describes the CGB Invoice documents that are created either via batch or manually.
Depending on the invoicing option for the Award, each type of Contracts & Grants Invoice document contains five or six unique tabs: Organization, General, Invoice Details OR Milestones OR Scheduled Bills, Account Summary, Invoice Suspension Categories, and Transmission Details (not present on LOC Review award invoices), in addition to the standard financial transaction tabs.
When Contracts & Grants Invoices (CINV) are created, the Description in the Document Overview is populated with the Award number, the Primary Fund Manager and the Contract Control Account if one has been assigned to the accounts associated with the Award. Refer to the Document Header article for additional information on this tab.
Displays the Billing and Processing organizations associated with the Fund Managers primary department or role 54 Accounts Receivable module qualification. Refer to the Billing and Processing Organizations article for additional information.
When an award’s Invoicing Option is set to Invoice by Account, Invoice by Contract Control Account or Invoice by Schedule some amounts on the General Tab on the Contracts & Grants Invoice may not equal the totals found in the Invoice Details or Account Summary tabs. This is because the General tab reflects the totals for all accounts on the Award (even though they are billed on separate invoices). The General Tab totals may also include amounts on saved or enroute invoices for the Award.
- Final Bill is only checkable when the Award stop date is earlier than today.
- The Calculate Button can be used to recalculate the Total Amount Billed To Date to reflect changes made in the Invoice Details section.
- Cost Share Amount can be manually updated to reflect Cost Share associated with this award.
The Customer is the customer associated with the Agency assigned to the Award. Refer to the CGB - Additional Fields and Tabs - Agency for additional information.
The Invoice Tab will change depending on the type of Invoice that is generated based on Billing Frequency selected for the award: Cost Reimbursable (annually, LOC Billing, monthly, quarterly, semi-annually) , Milestone (milestone) and Pre-Determined Billing (pre-determined billing).

- All other invoicing options, Invoice by Account, Invoice by Schedule or Invoice by Award will post AR entries to the accounts listed in the Account Summary.
Invoice Suspension Categories Tab
Invoice Suspension Categories require code to create new values or to modify existing values, therefore, there isn’t a related maintenance table. Refer to the CGB - Suspension Castegories article for a list of suspension categories.
Keeps track of when invoices have been mailed or emailed. Refer to the CGB - Invoice Transmission article for additional information.
General Ledger Pending Entries
The General Ledger Pending Entries are determined by the Contracts & Grants Invoice Object Code table. Income (or Deferred Revenue) and Receivable object codes can be set at either the Fund Group, Sub-Fund Group or the Sub-Fund Type Code. The system will look for the lowest level value to determine the appropriate object codes to use - if there isn't a Sub-Fund Type code, it will look for a Sub-Fund Code, if there isn't a sub-fund code, then it will look for a Fund Group. If no values have been defined, the invoice will not be created and will be added to the Contracts & Grants Invoice Errors log.
