UC - Unit Cost

Enter the unit cost for this purchase order item. The following discusses how the system defaults this value.

  • Job, Expense, Equipment, EM Work Order, SM Work Order – If the material's Purchase UM is equal to the Standard UM, defaults the standard unit cost defined in HQ Materials. If the Purchase UM is not equal to the Standard UM, defaults the unit cost defined on the Additional Units of Measure tab (in HQ Materials) for the Purchase UM.

    If pricing overrides exist in PO Category Discounts or PO Vendor Materials, defaults the unit cost as defined in the Category/Vendor Pricing section below.

    Note: If you entered a non-valid material or did not enter a material, the unit cost defaults as 0.00.
  • Inventory – Defaults the Last Unit Cost for the material from IN Location Materials, unless pricing overrides exist in PO Category Discounts or PO Vendor Materials. In which case, unit cost defaults as described below.

Category/Vendor Pricing Overrides

If you have set up vendor pricing overrides in either PO Category Discounts or PO Vendor Materials, the unit cost will default from these overrides for all line types. If a discount exists for the vendor and material category in PO Category Discounts, it will apply the discount to the standard unit price in HQ Materials to determine the default unit cost. If an override exists for the vendor/material group/material/UM in PO Vendor Materials, it will default a unit cost based on the specified Cost Option (Standard Unit Cost, Vendor's Unit Cost, Standard Book Price less discount, or Vendor's Book Price less discount). For job lines, if job overrides exist, it will default the override unit cost specified for the job (if one exists); otherwise, it will default the unit cost based on the Cost Option.

  • If the unit of measure is other than LS, and you enter a zero unit cost, the total cost must be zero. In addition, you will need to invoice the items to ensure that JCCD (Cost Detail) and POIT (PO Items) are in balance before you close the PO.

  • If overrides exist for the vendor/material in both PO Category Discounts and PO Vendor Materials, the unit cost will be pulled from PO Vendor Materials.
