Add a Change Event Line Item to an Unapproved Commitment CO


To add a change event line item to an unapproved commitment change order.


If the Commitments tool is configured with the 2-tier change order setting, you can add a change event line item to a commitment potential change order when the potential change order is in an unapproved status. You can then create a commitment change order using the Commitments tool. To learn more about change order tiers, see What are the different change order tier settings in Project Financials?

You can add a change event line item to a commitment change order either before or after the Request for Quote (RFQ) has been responded to. If you wait until the RFQ has been responded to, the Schedule of Values on the commitment change order populates with amounts from the RFQ.
