In addition to the many features already in earlier versions of BA the masking for each university’s terms, ability to accommodate alpha-numeric account numbers of any length, auto-calculation of IDC, option of creating sub-accounts (projects), salary encumbering across grant periods, and support for multiple fringe rates to name just a few- the move to the web makes it possible for BA to do so much more!
