Payment Plan with or without direct payment by ESA

The Payment Plan feature has been enhanced since ECOS version 5.1

The annex of report 5405 produces a real milestones payment plan table that can be directly integrated into a financial proposal.

It is possible to choose which sub-contractor is subject to direct payment by ESA and consequently adjust the Covered Expenditures profile and global amount to properly adjust the payment plan at a given level.
