Are payments for publishing fees allowable?
In any instance, manuscripts that will be excluded from consideration are: "for profit" textbooks, commercial fiction and popularized science. Support for previously published work will not be considered. Please contact your fund accountant if you have a situation that does not meet the criteria prior to committing to payment.
Should I use a GEC or DI?
From a Central Administration perspective, the answer to this is dependent upon the reason you are creating the transaction.
|To correct erroneous accounting string data for general ledger entries generated from other financial transactions.||
|DI||To distribute the income or expense, assets and liabilities from a holding account to one or more appropriate accounts when one account has incurred expenses or received income on behalf of one or more other accounts.||
See the GEC versus DI Guide for more information.
