View Variations

Also available on     

Objective

To view all variations submitted from the project's Commitments or Main Contract tool. 

Background

The Variations tool was designed as a viewing tool to provide project team's with a central place to view all of the variations in a project's Commitments or Main Contract tool. While you can view all contracts on a project, you cannot create new variations from the tool. Instead, you create variations by following these steps:  Create a Commitment Variation (CV) or Create a Main Contract Variation (MCV)

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • To view variations when a contract is not marked 'Private,' 'Read Only' level permissions or higher on the project's Variations tool. 
    • To view variations when a contract is marked 'Private':
      • 'Read Only' level permissions or higher on the project's Variations tool and you must be added to the 'Private' drop-down list on the contract.
        OR
      • 'Standard' level permissions on the project's Variations tool and added as a 'Designated Reviewer' on the Commitment Variation. See Create a Commitment Variation (CV).
        OR
      • 'Admin' level permissions on the project's Variations tool and one or both of the following permissions:
        • To view a Commitment Variation for a 'Private' purchase order or subcontract, 'Admin' level permissions on the project's Commitments tool. 
        • To view a Main Contract Variation for a 'Private' main contract, 'Admin' level permissions on the project's Main Contracts tool. 
           Notes
          • Users with permissions to view 'Private' purchase orders or subcontracts can view related 'Private' variations in the project's Commitments tool. See View a Purchase Order or View a Subcontract.
          • Users with permissions to view 'Private' main contracts can view related 'Private' variations in the project's Main Contracts tool. See View a Main Contract.
