Article summary


‘Schedule of Rates Libraries’ are lists that contain priced tasks to be used as an alternative method of costing to Time and Materials. The libraries combine the labour and material elements into a single value, for many disciplines.

The Schedule of Rates (SOR) section of the system allows you to add multiple ‘Schedule of Rates Libraries’. To access the SOR page, navigate to the ‘Library’ section of the system by clicking ‘Settings’ within the left navigation pane, and select ‘Schedule of Rates’
