9.2 Program Project Billing

Purpose:  Use this document to bill manually outside of the Grants and Contracts module in ctcLink.

Audience:  Finance/Grant Fiscal Staff.

You must have at least one of these local college managed security roles:

  • ZZ Billing Entry
  • ZZ_AWE_BI_APPR_060
  • ZZ_AWE_BI_APPR_062
  • ZZ_AWE_BI_APPR_063
  • ZZ_AWE_BI_APPR_064

If you need assistance with the above security roles, please contact your local college supervisor or IT Admin to request role access.

  • Program Projects are not attached to a contract; therefore, billing must be done manually outside of the Grants and Contracts module.
  • Program Projects are created in the Project costing module and not in the Grants module.
  • Programs projects were created for those items that are in Fund 145 or 146 but are not originated from an awarded Grant.
  • For more information on how to create a "Program Project", please see the Creating a Project QRG.
