Provider requests

Did you know?

A delay in processing budget or extension requests can potentially result in your provider being unfairly penalised for not being able to complete the work on time!


When your provider decides to submit a request for an order, either to increase the budget or extend time, they are unable to progress with that order until it has been acknowledged by the scheme agent. To assist your providers, follow these steps to address their requests and ensure the best outcome for everyone.


Before you begin:

These roles will help you get the results you need:
  • Matter Manager -  to approve an extension of time, you must be the matter owner.
  • Contract Administrator - allows you to action budget and extension of time requests.
  • Approval Manager - to approve budgets with an escalated delegation.


Access requests

2. Select Order from View Entity.
3. Choose View Level as either:

  • 3a: Assigned to Me - shows a list of orders assigned only to you for action or release
  • 3b: Available to My Workgroup - provides you with a wider visibility of all orders that are assigned to other users within your workgroup. It also shows orders that are unassigned (no owner) and incorporates your assigned order records too
