πŸ•΅οΈ A detailed overview of the columns

A detailed overview of the columns and the data presented within is shown further down this page, however, at a high level the Overall page presents:

  • Budgets and Budget Adjustments: total amount of financial resources that are allocated to a project
  • Contracts and Variations: this gives us the Current Contract or Current Commitments
  • Forecast & Uncommitted: this includes Forecasts and not yet approved Contracts and Variations
  • Final Forecast Cost: consisting of the Current Contract + Forecast & Uncommitted columns. This also gives us the Variance, which is the under or over against the Budget
  • Payment Progress: This bar graph highlights the total PAID, Approved, Submitted and Amount Remaining 

πŸ‘¨β€πŸ« To learn more about the data that goes into each of these columns, see below!

  • Adjustments - The amounts that are moved between Budgets and Sub-Budgets
  • Budget - The current Budget, taking into account the Adjustments that have been performed. 

πŸ‘‰ Contracts and Variations

In this section of the Overall, we have the columns:

  • Contract - The data for all APPROVED status Contracts.
  • Variations - The data for all APPROVED or IN-PRINCIPLE approved Variations against Contracts
  • Current Contract = Contract + Variations

In this section of the Overall, we have a single column Forecast & Uncommitted which includes:

  • Contracts - PENDING status 
  • Variations - FORECAST and PENDING status
  • Forecasts - OPEN status

πŸ‘‰ Final Forecast Cost & Variance

In this section of the Overall, we have the columns:

πŸ‘‰ Payments and Balances

In this section of the Overall, we have the columns:

  • Paid to Date  - The data for Payment Claims that are both APPROVED and PAID status. Despite the title of the column as 'Paid' to date, we currently include APPROVED status in here as a better representation of progress.
