What’s New in SCMT 9.0? • Document Types • Configurator Selector Wizard • Clause Import • Document Import • Wizard Improvements • Search Improvements (Verity) • Copy Document • Contract Agreement Mgmt • Miscellaneous Enhancements
Document Types • Optional (highly recommended) feature used to: • Expand uses of document generation beyond ‘formal’ contract documents • Configure different document types (purpose, audience, life cycle) • Enabler for other 9.0 features: • Requisition ‘Contract Request’ documents • Sharing wizard responses from prior documents • Role security for ‘create’ documents by doc type • Configurator Selectors • Life Cycle control for different document purpose • Option to auto number by document type
Requisition Contract ‘Request’ Document • ‘Special’ Document Type allows requestor to generate supplemental request document and wizard responses when the Req is entered • New link to Requisition in ePro and PO • Generated Doc can be optionally attached to Requisition • On award, the Specialist can optionally copy forward wizard responses into authored contract as the starting point.
Configurator Selector Wizard • New Wizard Type for selecting the correct configurator • Specify use within Document Type • Same UI as contract generation wizard
Search (Verity) Improvements • Now searches on actual contract files (including Verity- supported 9.0 imported files) • Search additional File Attachments • Search Chart fields • Search Remaining Amounts of PO Contract
Clause Import • Allows end user to ‘tag’ content within word documents to create clauses within contract. • Word document must be saved as ‘XML’ format • Process: • End user uses ‘ad-ins’ to add Schema. • Tag content for ‘body’, ‘title’, ‘clause id’ • Upload file and clauses are parsed out • User specifies other settings in page and then ‘creates selected clauses’.
Document Import • End user component allowing for on-ramp of external ‘non-generated’ contract documents • Puts uploaded document into Document Management life cycle and Verity search (when supported by Verity) • Any ‘attachable’ format supported (.doc, .pdf, .jpeg, etc.) • Can use with/without Document Types • Option to load prior amendments for contract documents
Wizard Enhancements • Wizard improvements to add binds/rules on the fly and better relate the objects • Wizard Expanded Summary option (Grid) to view sequence of all questions/binds from question groups, navigational flow, and possible responses in one place. • ‘Save for later’ option in wizard
Copy Documents • Ability to copy ad-hoc contract documents • Ability to copy last related executed contract document when copying the transactional contract • Useful when contract is ‘same as’ previous contract document • Will automatically ‘refresh’ from new transactional bind values • Note: Some ‘risk’ that content will NOT be the latest from the clause library • System logs this when it occurs
Contract Agreements • Spend Threshold Alerts • Metric based system generated Agreement types by contract (PO related) • % of quality receipts • % Correct Receipt Qty • % On-time deliveries • % Total Ordered versus Received
Contract Agreements • Spend Threshold Alerts (Contract Entry) • Header and Line options:

Miscellaneous Enhancements • ‘Related Documents’ feature within Document Management • Cut/Paste option in configurator maintenance • Delete ‘Draft’ Document capability (search results from Doc Management) • Role based ‘view only’ option for all documents (8.9 was by user only)
