STEP 6: Markup Check Box: uncheck any boxes that are not allowed markup per your contract (not typical)


STEP 7: Vendor Field: If the line item is being performed by a vendor, Click the magnifying glass to select the vendor for the SOW.

NOTE: If a SCO is not required and are only looking to adjust budget, leave the Vendor & Subcontract fields BLANK.



*****Assigned Vendors*****
 Subcontractors with Commitments on the Project.


*****Self Performed Vendors*****
Will provide distinction of work performed by Swinerton.
This is not required.


*****Unassigned Vendors***** =
DO NOT USE – ALL VENDORS must already have a
contract in place in order to assign them in a PCI.


Leave Blank - If Vendor is unknown



STEP 8: SUBCONTRACT: Click in the magnifying glass to select the contract. Once the Vendor is selected, the Contract Number and associated Phase/Category Codes should all populate.

NOTE: Populating the Vendor and Subcontract fields is what makes the PCI available for a Subcontract Change Order (SCO). Enter amount in the Sub Quoted Amount, THIS is where the dollar amount the SCO comes from.

STEP 9: CATEGORY: Category may not populate if your Subcontract or phase contains more than one (1) category. Click the magnifying glass to select the correct category for the line item.

STEP 9: DAYS IMPACT: The Days Impact field applies to the specific line item, optional, and is not reported on. Review with the sub if they are going to provide additional crew for the SOW or if this will extend their time onsite.  



STEP 10: Phase Qty (Output): The Phase Qty field is utilized for labor productivity. Refer to the Labor Productivity Training Material.
