Instructions: After you login...
Only Travelers who have previously requested and been approved to receive advances are eligible to request Cash Advances.
From the ConcurGov Home page, locate the appropriate Authorization in the “Recent Authorization” section. Select the document name under the “Name” column.
You can also locate the Authorization by selecting the “Authorizations” tab at the top of the page (not shown).
From the “Document Actions” pop-up window select “Open Document.”
Note: If the document has been adjusted, select the most recent version indicated with ** at the end of the document name. Then select “Edit Document” to continue.
Select the “Add Advances” button.
Select the “Perform Pre-Audits” tab to see if any items failed the pre-audit test. If any items show as FAIL in the status column, select the “Justify Pre-Audit Results” button to enter a justification. Enter a justification for any failed items. Then select “Save Justification” to continue.
Select the “Confirmation” tab to sign the Authorization.
Select the “SIGNED” stamp in the “Status to Apply” drop-down menu. Then select “Stamp and Submit Document.” If this has previously been approved, it will need to go through the routing process again to approve the advance.
Select the “Continue Stamping the Document” button.
The system will ask you to approve signing the Authorization electronically. Select the “Accept Signature Text” if you accept these conditions.
Select the “Close Post Stamping Document Closure Screen” button to close the Authorization and begin the routing process.
