Dear All,

As a follow up to the earlier email reflecting the new format for your Pre-Award GAS please be aware that the budget item categories, although entered in PeopleSoft as $0.00 will not appear in detail on your grant award summary (see below). As mentioned earlier, you will still be able to post expenses without error.
