IMPORTANT The system considers only the billable accounts to sum up the total of the contract. It means the sum of the billable accounts will have to match the total for the contract, but it does not apply to the non-billable ones. It is required that the contract has at least one billable account informed.
Example 1: If a Time & Materials Contract's total contracted hours is 100 hours, you can have a billable account with all the 100 hours and an additional non-billable account with more hours. For example, 20 hours. The total hours (billable and non-billable) will be 120, but the system will allow you to save the contract normally since the total for billable accounts matches the Contract's total hours (100).
Example 2: If the Contract's total contracted hours is 100 hours and you have 2 billable accounts, one with 100 hours and another with 20 hours, the system WILL NOT allow you to save the contract until you match the billable values with the Contract's totals. In this case, you have to remove the 20 hours account or make it non-billable, so the totals will match.
- The same logic applies to Fixed-Price contracts.
