Resources for Grant Making

The SWIFT Training team partnered with the Office of Grants Management to offer SWIFT resources for grant makers. They are posted on the SWIFT General Purchasing page.

Typically, grants that provide funding for an outside entity are encumbered in SWIFT in the Supplier Contracts module. This guide provides the steps to enter and execute grant contracts. This guide provides the steps to enter and manage grants in three SWIFT Modules: Supplier Contracts, Purchase Orders and Accounts Payable.
To record outgoing grants into SWIFT:
  • Enter outgoing grant contracts into the Supplier Contracts module.  Code all grants as a Grant (GRK) Contract Type and Category Code of 84101501.
  • Enter the encumbrance into the Purchase Order module. Code the purchase order as a Contract Encumbering Order (KEO) purchase order.

Accounts Payable: Vouchers in Recycle Status 

Vouchers in Recycle Status have failed at least one validation. Common reasons that vouchers are placed in Recycle Status include:
  • Duplicate invoice numbers
  • Being out of balance
  • Accounting dates that are not in open periods
To quickly check for vouchers in Recycle Status:
  • Navigation:  Accounts Payable, Vouchers, Add/Update, Regular Entry, Find an Existing Value
  • Search for vouchers with Entry Status = Recycle.
Agencies can also run query M_AP_GBL_RECYCLED_VCHRS. 
Agencies should periodically monitor SWIFT for vouchers in Recycle Status and resolve the issues.
