About the PO Vendor Materials Form
Use this form to enter overrides to material costs by vendor.
You can also use this form to set up overrides to material costs by job, vendor cross-references to HQ materials, and material substitutions.
When setting up material cost overrides, select one of four cost options that will be used to calculate the override cost for materials in the selected category:
Standard Unit Cost – Uses the unit cost defined in HQ Materials for each material to calculate material costs. Used to define substitutes or vendor material numbers rather than override the standard cost.
Vendors Unit Cost – Uses the unit cost specified for the vendor in this form to calculate material cost.
Standard Book Price Less Discount – Uses the book price specified in HQ Materials for each material, plus the discount specified in this form to calculate material costs.
Vendor Book Price Less Discount – Uses the book price and the discount specified in this form to calculate material costs.
Material Cost Overrides by Job
- Unit Cost - the unit cost that will be used to calculate the material cost when buying for this job.
- Discount - the discount rate to be used in conjunction with the vendor’s book price (if one exists) or the HQ book price to calculate material costs for the selected job.
