Create Letter of Credit Fund and Letter of Credit Fund Groups
Once Letter of Credit Fund Groups are created to represent the different LOC entities, you will create a Letter of Credit Fund for each LOC award.
- The LOC Fund Group links awards from the same LOC Fund Group together, so they can all be selected at one time using the Contracts & Grants LOC Review in order to generate invoices.

Contracts & Grants LOC Review
Presents a means for reviewing draw amounts for letter of credit awards, prior to creating Contracts & Grants invoices and payment transactions for those awards.
When you select Contracts & Grants Letter of Credit Review from the menu, the system displays the Contracts & Grants LOC Review Initiation tab.
Select from either the Letter of Credit Fund Group drop down or the Letter of Credit Fund. The Letter of Credit Fund Group links Awards from the same LOC entity in order to create invoices for all the awards associated with a single LOC entity.
Click Continue to open the Contracts & Grants Letter of Credit Review document. The two tabs unique to this document are the General tab and the Award Accounts tab.
The General tab displays the Letter of Credit Fund Group or Letter of Credit Fund Group Code that was selected on the initiation screen.
The Award tab displays information about the LOC awards that are associated with the selected Letter of Credit Fund Group or Letter of Fund Group Code. The only editable fields are the Claim on Cash Balance. Click the "show" button to display this field.
The Claim on Cash Balance is equal to the amount of expenses that have posted to the account less any invoices that have been previously billed. The Amount To Draw can be reduced and the recalcluate button will update the Funds Not Drawn to reflect the difference between Claim on Cash Balance and Amount to Draw. If the Amount to Draw exceeds the Claim on Cash Balance, a warning is presented. Clicking past the warning will add a note to the Letter or Credit Review document.
The Awards can be exported into a spreadsheet and can be printed using the Export and Print buttons.
Submit creates Contracts & Grants Invoices. If the Awards are set to Auto Approve and there are no Suspension categories, the invoices will go to Final. Otherwise, they will route to the Fund Managers for resolution.
The letterOfCreditJob will create a Cash Control and Payment Applications for all Final LOC invoices. The Cash Control routes for approval and is approved once the LOC deposit has posted to the bank. Bank offsets are created if the bank offset functionality is turned on.
