GCFA’s View/Role of the Subaward Payment Process

What we have heard….

“Many invoices are lost!!”

“We sent it to GCFA- Where is my invoice? Why isn’t it paid?”

“Departments don’t know when invoices are on hold. How are we supposed to know or provide information to get the invoice paid?”

“Subrecipients are calling looking for payments.”

“We entered all the information; why are the invoices now on hold?”

How can this process be improved?

GCFA’s View/Role of the Subaward Payment Process

What We Know!!

To date we have 985 active subawards – 85 Central Campus and 900 YSM.

Approximately 100 invoices per month fail the approval/validation processes and are placed on hold. Common reasons for invoices being placed on hold:

No amendment/invalid subaward 37%

No P.I. and /or Department Business Office Signature 2%

Not enough funding available 12%

No subcontract number or incorrect subcontract number 6%

The subrecipient invoicing process is a complex task that includes the teamwork of many offices.

A more streamlined process for receipt and payment is needed!

Need to reduce invoice processing time so subrecipients receive their payments sooner!

school s role in central receipt of subrecipient invoices
School’s Role in Central Receipt of Subrecipient Invoices

To simplify the receipt of subaward invoices there will be two central locations for subrecipients to send their invoices:

YSM (School of Medicine) invoices

Research Compliance Coordinator

47 College St., Suite 216

    P O Box 208092

     New Haven, CT  06520-8092

Central Campus (all non-Medical School) invoices

Research Compliance Coordinator

260 Whitney Avenue

P O Box 208108

New Haven, CT 06520-8108

Note: All new outgoing subaward documents will have the new remittance address reflected in the subaward template. For existing subawards, a notification will be sent to the subrecipient regarding the of address change.

Upon receipt of subrecipient invoices in either YSM Financial Operations or the Shared Science Service Branch (non-Medical School invoices), Coordinators from both areas will provide the following information:

Identify Department Organization #

Identify Sub K #

Identify Award #

Identify Sub K expense type

Once the above items are identified, the invoices will be scanned and forwarded to the department for review and approval.

The PI or designee is required to sign each invoice

The PI or designee signature acknowledges review of technical progress reports and/or satisfactory performance by the subrecipient

Note: If a PI designates signing authority, the designee must have knowledge of the projects technical progress.

The Departmental Business Office Reviewer must ensure that all subaward invoices include the following information:

Name of subrecipient

Date of invoice

Invoice number

Period of performance covered by invoice

Description of services described

Current period costs, including cost sharing

Cumulative project costs, including cost sharing, as compared to the project budget

Subrecipient contact person

Certification on each invoice as to the truth and accuracy of the invoice

Once the invoice is reviewed by the business office representative, s/he must sign the invoice and forward an electronic copy attached to Accounts Payable via the Subaward Payment Form email template.

Invoice Submission to Accounts Payable:

In an effort to simplify payments and have invoices pass validation, an email template has been created to ensure accuracy and standardization. The new form must accompany all invoices when submitted to A/P

This template holds all the required information needed for A/P to enter invoices into their system and to greatly reduce the validation failure rate

After subcontract invoices are reviewed and approved, do the following:

Scan the invoice

Open the Subaward Payment Form email template which can be found at {FILL IN} and fill in the required information

Attach the approved invoice to the email and send it directly to A/P at:

[email protected]

Maintain the original in your records

When wiring payments to international subrecipients, the invoice must be accompanied by Wire Transfer and IRS W-8 BEN forms

Wire Transfer forms can be accessed at:

IRS W-8 BEN information can be found at:

Receipt of Invoices in Accounts Payable

Invoices received at [email protected]

Invoices are forwarded to the Data Entry service the same day of receipt

The Data Entry service scans the invoices and enters a zero dollar amount for each invoice

Invoices are available to view by Yale A/P staff within 2-3 business days at which point A/P enters all the information from the Subaward Payment Form email template into the A/P system

Accounts Payable Validation Process

A/P’s system will validate each invoice based on the following criteria:

Valid Charging instructions: PTAEO

Valid Sub K number

Signature of Principal Investigator (PI)

Signature of Authorizer

Service Dates

subcontract management system sms validations
Subcontract Management System (SMS) Validations

Apart from standard A/P validations, subcontract invoices are also validated against various segments of the (SMS) system.

The validations are against the following :

The Subcontract number

The Vendor name

The Vendor site code

The effective dates of the subcontract

The Subcontract status

Subcontract funding limit
