Create PM Subcontract Detail
You can create PM module subcontract detail using the awarded vendor bids on a PC potential project after that potential project has been used to create a PM project.
Follow the steps below to create PM module subcontract detail using the awarded bids on a potential project.
- Open a potential project in PC Potential Projects.
- Open the PC Bid Coverage tab to view the vendor bids on the potential project.
- Make sure that there are awarded vendor bids on the potential project. These bids will be used to create the subcontract detail. Note: Check the Bid Awarded box to award a bid to a vendor. Amounts entered into the Bid Amount field will be used to create the subcontract detail. If there is no amount entered in the Bid Amount field, the subcontract detail will be created with no amount, but you will be able to modify the subcontract detail after it has been created in PM Subcontract Detail . Click here for more information on awarding and maintaining bids on the Bid Coverage tab.
- Click the Tasks icon and select Create PM Subcontract Detail from the menu that appears. This will open PC Create PM Project. Note: You can only access PC Create PM Project if you have form security set up to add records to PM Projects. Form security is set up using VA Form Security .
- Enter the PM project number in the Project field or press F4 to select it from a list. This is the PM project associated with the subcontract detail that will be created.
- Check the Create Subcontract Detail box.

If the SL Cost Type 1 field is blank, it will display the value in the SL Cost Type 2 field.
