FF.002.3 Collect - Grant/Project Expenditures [VC01/VC027] (Part 2) (Project Archive)

User Acceptance Test Overview

Collect Grant/Project Expenditures is the process that takes place in the Project Costing module. Actual expense might need to be tracked and billed depending on the terms in conditions identified in the contract.  

**Important Tip** In order to show the true business process please share the Project ID number(s) and Activity ID(s) to your colleagues who are testing the Purchasing and Travel modules; so they can create transactions that you can later invoice.

To use this UAT guide first review the business process flow diagram below, which outlines the various steps to complete the test activities. Note that the business process flow diagram has distinct places where one can start testing this process, noted by a green 'Start' circle. Use the diagram, following the arrows to each step that must be executed. Use the Quick Reference Guide (QRGs) links, also below, to find the instructions on how to execute each step. The Quick Reference Guides are numbered to match each box on the flow diagram to assistant testers with following the flow of the business process.  Once testing is complete for each box on the flow diagram, click the link in the Next Step (Tier 2) in the High Level UAT Framework section to access the next UAT Guide.
