Note: This FAQ relates to ESG
Date Published: April 2019
For each ESG activity recipients must identify each subrecipient that is being funded on the IDIS Activity Funding screens. For ESG, recipients should select Subordinate when identifying the subrecipient organization. However, there are existing organizations that have been set-up in IDIS that are categorized as CarryOut Org. This categorization cannot be changed, and ESG recipients should use the CarryOut Org designation if the subrecipient is already entered in the system this way. It is important to consistently select the same subrecipient organization each year to ensure that the entity is not set up in the system multiple times.
When creating a voucher for ESG in IDIS, first search for the specific IDIS Activity. Then, on the Create Voucher – Page 2 of 4 (Drawdown Amounts), include the appropriate dollar amount for the specific subrecipient and activity in the correct Drawdown Amount textbox. The Create Voucher – Page 2 of 4 (Drawdown Amounts) will show the Funded Amount and Available to Draw amount for each subrecipient as currently funded/drawn in IDIS for each activity.
