Will SPA process an outgoing sponsored billing agreement under an advance account or when continuation funding is anticipated but not yet received?

The risk of issuing a billing agreement is the theoretical equivalent of setting up Harvard personnel to be paid from the advance account.  However, there is the added element of the agreement being through an outside organization.  The risk of issuing the billing agreement under these circumstances should be evaluated on a case by case basis so that the department who administers the award can determine whether they are willing to accept the financial risk under the specific circumstances.
