Add a Change Event Line Item to an Unapproved Commitment VAR


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


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

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