C-04-08 Revert Order to Work In Progress (WIP)

Who: Contract Administrator
Why: You may need to reopen an Order that the Supplier has marked as Complete for various reasons. For example, a Supplier may have accidentally submitted a $0 final claim which automatically marks the order as complete when verified by the customer.
When: The Revert To WIP feature becomes available to the Customer once the Order has been marked Complete by the Supplier (ready to submit Final Claim).

Up until the final invoice has been approved the Supplier still has the control to recall and undo by moving the Order back through the stages (orange arrows below). If necessary the Supplier can move the Order all the way back to the Accept Order stage. See user guide Work In Progress and Events for more information.
If the final Invoice has been approved, only the Customer can pull the Order back to Work In Progress.
