A new functionality has been introduced wherein the vendor certifications can be associated with projects. While associating certifications to a project, we can specify if these certificates are required/mandatory to release the vendor payments. If the active certifications on the vendor do not match the project certification requirement, the vendor invoices are not released for payments.
On the projects360 parameters form, new parameter is introduced ‘Activate vendor certifications by project’ to associate vendor certification on projects and to define if these certificates are required/mandatory to release the vendor payments. User needs to set the “Activate vendor certifications by project” field value to ‘Yes’ in order to use this feature.
|Activate vendor certifications by project||This parameter enables users to activate vendor certification on projects.|
|PWP for vendor certifications||When this parameter is set to Yes, PWP release will validate “Required vendor certifications” while releasing a vendor invoice for payment.|
