Item prices are subject to change from your vendors given current market trends. A user can manage contract price violations at the Director Level. This is helpful because it allows the director user to either Disregard or Accept the price change. At Store level, prices will update automatically based on the latest invoice approved, this is not the case with Director prices since each store may have a different price for the same item. Managing your Contract Price Violations will ensure your prices are current and accurate.
Refer to the steps below on Managing Contract Price Violations at Director Level:
Managing Contract Price Violations
- Login at Director level.
- Click Invoices > Contract Violations from navigation.
- Filter by: Stores, Markets, Period and/or Date.
- Select vendor(s) to view associated contract violations.
- Select to Disregard or Accept Contract Price Violations from approved Vendor Invoices.
- Sync changes to stores.
Disregard vs Accept Price
Disregard = You recognize the price change at the store level(s) but don't want to update Director-level vendor purchase unit (PU).
Accept Price = You account the new price and the Director-level vendor purchase unit (PU) will now reflect this new price for all stores where it is associated.
