Date of Lean workshop:
June 14th – 16th, 2010
Problem Statement / Background:
As of December 2009 the billing backlog for cost reimbursable grant expenditures was $15.8M. The target for the unbilled amount is currently at $2M.
When invoices are not submitted to our sponsor by the due date identified in the negotiated award agreement we are out of compliance with federal, state and/or University regulations. Delays in invoicing may also result in non payment by the sponsor because the terms and conditions of the award have not been met. This results in a reduced cash flow and potential lost interest to the University.
Goals / Objectives
Reduce the backlog of unbilled invoices to $2M or less.
Metrics / Measures:
As of September 23, 2010, the unbilled amount has been reduced to $7.00 million.
