Several updates have been made to Master Professional/Technical Work Order (MWK) contracts. The updates include:
1. The Referenced MPK Contract ID field is required for all MWK contracts. The reason for this new functionality is to establish a system relationship between the Master Professional/Technical contract (MPK) and the Master Professional/Technical Work Order (MWK) contracts.
2. The MMD Contract Release Number/T–Number value defaults from referenced MPK contract on all MWK contracts.
3. Validation of the sum of all MWK contracts does not exceed the max amount of the referenced MPK contract.
4. Validation that the date range of the MWK contract (Begin and Expire Dates) falls within the date range of the referenced MPK contract.
These updates will be in effect Monday, January 12, 2015. For additional information regarding these changes, please see the MWK Contracts New Functionality guide on MMB’s website.
