PROJECT MANAGEMENT

PROJECT DEFINITIONS The Project Definitions screen keeps track of the multiple work requests that constitute a larger project such as a construction project. This screen is used to roll up costs for all associated Work Requests and plan all work in advance while awaiting approval of funding. To access the Project Definitions screen, select these menu items: Work Management Module / Work Management / Entry / Project

Information for completing the Project screen can be found in the FacilityFocus User Guide Volume I, Chapter 3.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Project Definitions Screen Field

Explanation

Enforce Project Distribution?

A check in this box indicates that system will enforce the account distribution set up for the project. When a Work Request is assigned to a project via the Work Request Entry or Project Entry Screen, if the Project Distribution is being enforced, the system will “expire” all work request/phase distributions that do not match the project distribution and insert the project distribution.

Enforce Contracts

If this checkbox is checked and contracts are defined in the Project/Contract Association window, if this project is selected on the Work Request Header, only the contracts on this list will be displayed for selection. Opens a window that allows you to view or create a list of contractors and descriptions for the project.

WORK REQUEST ENTRY Using work request entry you can document work orders by performing the following tasks: • • • •

describing the nature of the work assigning the shop(s) responsible for resolution indicating the account(s) used to finance the work requested dividing the work into phases (all work requests have at least one assigned phase.)

To access the Work Request Entry screen, select these menu items: Work Management Module / Work Management / Entry / Work Request / Entry

Information for completing the Work Request Entry screen can be found in the FacilityFocus- User Guide Volume I, Chapter 3.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Work Request Screen Field

Explanation

Contract

If, on the Project Entry screen, the Enforce Contracts checkbox is checked and contracts are defined in the Project/Contract Association window, if the project is then selected on the Work Request Header, only the contracts on the Project/Contract Association list will be displayed for selection. If no project is selected in the header, any contract not set to enforce the project relationship can be selected. If no contracts are set to enforce the project relationship, when you zooms the Contractor field on the Work Request Phase detail section, the system assures that the Contractor services match the Work Request Type, Category and Work Code selected on the Work Request Screen and filters the list accordingly. The contract can be entered before the contractor and address code. If this is done, the contractor and address code backfill from the contract and become non-editable fields (although the contract remains editable). Both Contractor and Contract field are filtered so that a contractor with non-matching services (or no services defined) cannot be selected. The system allows selection of only those contracts at an “AWARDED” or a ‘RELEASED’ status and for which the work request entry date is prior to the contract expire date. When the contract number is validated the contract detail is tested for the presence of records. If records for the contract do not exist, any valid contract can be saved. If detail records do exist, only contracts where the detail region, facility, property and work code match the values of the work request/phase can be saved.

CONTRACTORS AND CONTRACTS The Contractor and Contracts module manages the dissemination of work orders to approved contractor/vendors based on cost and tracks acquisition of non-stock or vendor-supplied inventory. The Contract Quality Rating screen records customer comments and responses to predefined questions concerning the quality of work performed for contract services. Contractors can remotely access the Work Management Module Estimates screen to provide work estimates based on established price and labor standards.

SERVICE CONTRACT INVOICES Service Contract invoicing involves three screens: • Service Contract Invoice Entry Screen • Service Contract Invoice Template Screen • Service Contract Invoice Generator

SERVICE CONTRACT INVOICE ENTRY SCREEN Use this screen to set up invoice records presented to your organization for payment. These invoice records reference previously created Work Request Phase records associated with a contractor. When an invoice is created, the system will check to make sure the contract has not expired by comparing today’s date with the Date To field on the Contract Screen. Transactions written to the fund table include the cost of the service contract payment plus the percentage markup defined in the contract. The offset account transaction generated into the fund table also includes the percentage markup. A second pair of transactions are written to the fund table that debits the amount of the markup from the offset account used in the first set of transactions and credits the overhead account. The contract overhead offset subcode is also used in the distribution. The total AP payment cost including the markup is used to update the work request phase materials costs. To access the Service Contract Invoice Entry screen, select these menu items: Purchasing Module / Purchasing / Entry / Accounts Payable / Service Contract Invoice / Service Contract Invoice Entry

If the Retainage type is in Dollars the system displays the dollar value. If the Retainage type is in percent (‘P’) the system calculates the Retainage amount by dividing the Award Amount by Retainage.
