Revenue adjustments – Progress/Fixed fee projects

Revenue adjustments capabilities has been built on top fee management allowing us to adjust the accrued revenue getting the correct total revenue as well as WIP and % complete at given point of time. There could be scenarios where the actual work completed is more or less than then what’s been already billed to the client, in this case you can use the revenue adjustment capabilities bring back the project values to what’s expected.

There are two type of the adjustments namely – percentage complete adjustment and NTE adjustment each catering to different fee types. Percentage complete adjustment is applicable to the projects with the fee type of progress or fixed fee where as NTE adjustment is applicable to projects with the fee type of time and expense NTE.

Go to Project management and accounting > All Projects > Fee management -> Percentage complete adjustment

Once user select progress fee type project, Percentage complete adjustment button is enabled allowing users to perform revenue adjustment.

While performing the adjustments, there are 5 different methods to adjust the project values.

  • From total revenue – In this case an adjustment record is created considering the total revenue earned, this includes the invoiced as well as the accrued revenue vs total contract value of the project as on the day of adjustment. A record is created on the revenue adjustments form.
  • From Invoice revenue – In this case an adjustment record is created considering the posted/invoiced revenue vs the total contract of the project as on the day of adjustment. A record is created on the revenue adjustments form.
  • From total hours – In this case an adjustment record is created considering the posted hours vs the hour budget the project as on the day of adjustment. A record is created on the revenue adjustments form.
  • From contract value cap – In this case an adjustment record is created considering the percentage complete revenue adjustment calculation. A record is created on the revenue adjustments form.
  • From estimated at completion – In this case an adjustment record is created considering the estimated at completion percent vs total contract value of the project as on the day of adjustment. A record is created on the revenue adjustments form. This option is available and defaulted when “Activate ETC/EAC management” projects360 parameter is set as “Yes”.

Once an adjustment record is created, user can update the ‘Adjustment amount’ and ‘Adjusted % completed’ to adjust the project balances. On updating the ‘Adjustment amount’ and ‘Adjusted % completed’ fields, the rest of the column values are auto calculated to reflect the right values.
