Subcontracts - Cost Center Information

If cost centers are being used, when accessing a subcontract Spectrum validates that the cost center assigned to the vendor is an authorized cost center for your operator. Spectrum compares the vendor's list of shared cost centers with cost centers in your assigned cost center scheme, and if there are no common cost centers, then that vendor is not allowed. Spectrum also compares the cost center assigned to the job with cost centers in the operator's assigned cost center scheme, and if the job's cost center is not present, then inquiry on that subcontract is not allowed.

If you have permission to view the subcontract, then the summary balance appears, representing the full amount owed.

  • The Open details show the invoices that you have permission to access. Spectrum compares the cost center assigned in the invoice with cost centers in your assigned cost center scheme, and if the invoice cost center is not included, then that invoice is not shown.

  • Likewise, the History details show the payments that you have permission to access. Spectrum compares the cost center assigned in the payment transaction with cost centers in your assigned cost center scheme, and if the payment transaction cost center is not included, then that payment is not shown.

  • Cost center details can be viewed for a displayed invoice by drilling into the Invoice window. Cost centers assigned to distribution lines are shown in Expand mode, and the cost center assigned to the invoice is shown in the header section of the screen.
