The direct costs per project participants are managed at Proposal > Contractor > Financial Information or DoW > Contractor > Financial Information in the panel Direct Costs.


Here, you can create plan direct costs per activity type for the project participant.

1. Make sure you have the correct project participant selected from the left contractor list (User with Coordinator Right only).

2. To add a new direct cost entry, click on Screen Shot 2013-02-28 at 12.32.47 AM button on the right side near the activity type.

3. A dialog box appears in which you can choose the correct cost category.


4. Click OK to add the new cost entry.

5. Once the cost type has been added, you can enter the amount of other Direct Costs per year in the field boxes.


To see the overall current budget per participant and project, go to Proposal > Project > Budget or DoW > Project > Budget. More information here.


Users with Coordinator Right can do this on behalf of every partner.


If your project has more than 3 project years, use the scroll bar at the bottom to move to year 4 and more.
