Frequently-Asked Questions

Does the new system include a way to address incremental awards that are for only part of a budget year, and/or cross budget years?

Each award line in Workday can have a distinct start and end date, as long as they fall within the overall award duration. Award Budgets, however, are bound to the budget period structure. Since SAGE Budgets will supply data to both the award line setup and the award budget setup, overlapping periods creates a challenge.

Within SAGE you will be able to set an alternate start and end date in the Worksheet settings (this is new functionality), as long as those dates fall within a budget period. If the start and end dates extend across more than one period, the best practice will be to create a single period in SAGE to allow maximum flexibility in setup of the SAGE budget worksheet start and end dates.
