Compliance Tracking

This application will be available with the 2024.3 release.  For more information on this release, including the timing of its availability, please refer to July 2024 Release Notes.

The Compliance Tracking app allows you to record and track documentation related to contracts and purchase orders, such as insurance policies, bonds, business licenses, permits, training certifications, supplier agreements, tax documents, etc. These documents can be requested from vendors, and vendors can return the requested information along with supporting document files. The requested documentation can be reviewed and approved at the project and corporate level through the application workflow.
