Should I track non-commitment costs on a change event?


If you need to track costs on a change event that are not included in a commitment and are a different amount from the cost that is submitted as part of a Prime Contract Potential Change Order (PCO), you should enable non-commitment costs. See Add or Edit General Project Information.

For example, you could be submitting a PCO that includes an insurance cost at premium to the owner, but you'd like to also track the actual out-of-pocket costs with a variance. The out-of-pocket costs can be manually entered into the non-commitment cost column of the change event and a similar non-commitment cost column can then be added to your configurable budget view (See Set up a New Budget View ) for tracking and forecasting until the direct cost comes through.
