F&A return by sibling account activity (not F&A split)?

Answer this question ‘Yes’ if Facilities & Administration (F&A) revenue distribution should be allocated based on actual UAccess Financials sibling account activity rather than applying the UAccess Research (UAR) proposal Credit Allocation percentages to the project as a whole regardless of sibling account activity. This decision cannot be reversed later or applied retroactively, and it is highly recommended the answer of 'Yes' is only used for major projects with collaboration across colleges.
