The revenue amount that is displayed in FIN is a result of accounting entries created based on the corresponding grant/contract award amount. The revenue displayed in FIN may, or may not, correspond with cash received on the project. If a grant or contract is prepaid (paid in advance) then the revenue most likely will correspond to the cash received. If the grant or contract is to be invoiced, then the cash received will be for invoices the sponsor has paid to date and will not match the revenue amount displayed in FIN.
Information regarding cash related to a particular budget can be found on the GCA (Grant and Contract Accounting) GrantTracker. All GCA budgets can be viewed online through GrantTracker. You can search by various criteria, including budget number, grant number, and PI. One of the items displayed on GrantTracker is a list of payments received from the budget’s sponsor.
