Funding Vehicle Information Window

The Funding Vehicle Information window is displayed when a new funding vehicle is added via the Ribbon Bar or from the Project Information window. A funding vehicle characterizes the source of money. For example, if an organization receives funding from multiple sources, a user could create a vehicle to capture each source's dollar value. A funding vehicle must exist before funding can be assigned to a project. The vehicle describes the money itself, while the execution describes how the money is spent or used. Asterisk (*) fields are required.
