Direct Costs - Overview

Direct Costs List – Layout and Navigation



The Direct Costs List is accessed by clicking Direct Costs from the Project navigation menu. 

The Direct Costs List can be searched.


The Direct Costs List View can be filtered to show only Contracts with certain status(es) and/or Type(s). 

Multiple selections can be made from the filter drop down. If more than one Status is selected, then it is an OR relationship between Statuses. (i.e. display if “Draft” OR “Out for Bid”). If more than one Type is selected, then it is an OR relationship between Types. (i.e. display if “Expense” OR “Payroll”). 

If selections are made in both Statuses and Types, then it is an AND relationship between Status and Type. (i.e. display if Status=”Draft” AND Type=”Expense”).



To Search for a Direct Costs:

Click in the Search box at the top right of the form and type the information to search for. The list will be narrowed to display only those Direct Costs matching what is typed in.

5)     Repeat the same steps for Types

6)     Click outside of the Filter box when the filters are applied to remove display of the filter list.
