See the Connect Budget article in the eGC1 Forms user guide for details.
There are three possible reasons why a budget period may not be available for connection:
- It may already be connected to another eGC1. Each budget period can only be connected to one eGC1.
- Budget periods must be connected to eGC1s in a sequential fashion. You cannot connect a budget period to an eGC1 if any period following it has already been connected to an eGC1.
- A previous budget period may already be connected to an eGC1, and that eGC1 may not yet be in Approved status. You must wait until OSP has approved the connected eGC1 before you can connect a subsequent budget period to a new eGC1.
