New releases in GMS – May 2018

    1. New Refund waiver feature

    New “Refund Waiver”:
    When the Balance (after FFR or Audit completion) is lesser than $75, FCS Finance/UNDP will have the possibility to process a refund waiver, which will skip the “IP/HFU Refund processing stage” in the refund workflow.

    Note: button will be visible only to FCS Finance /UNDP users, if Balance is lesser than $75 (this value is configurable).

    2. New fields in Audit report Module

    New fields displaying “other income”:
    Actual Income Reported by IP: displays the values for “other income”, as reported by IP in the Final Financial Report.
    Total Eligible Income: allows the user to report on the eligible income amount, as provided in the audit report document.

    Updated balance due formula:
    The balance due formula has been updated, as follows, in order to reflect the inclusion of the other income:
    Balance Due = (Total Eligible Expenditure – Total Eligible Income)- Amount Disbursed to IP + (Refund Amount Received)
