Identifying and resolving conflicts

Here's a guide to help you identify, review and resolve conflicts in your job.

A conflict happens when the information in your invoice doesn't match or has a discrepancy. There are a few ways to handle a conflict.

You can upload new and correct documents to resolve it, or, you also have an option to ignore the conflict and proceed with dispute.

To identify a conflict, simply check the job status on the Active jobs page. It will indicate if the job has a conflict. You can also view all jobs with conflicts by filtering for them using the status filter.

If the job has a conflict, just click View to see the Details page - it has all the useful information about the job. You'll see the invoice total, the discrepancy if there is one, the invoice and baseline documents associated with the job, and more.

Read the note included in the conflict banner. If there is none, click the Results tab.

Most of the time, you will be required to upload new and correct documents to resolve a conflict. Before uploading a new document, we recommend starting the dispute process, which will change the job status to Dispute. This will ensure you and your team are aware that someone is actively working to resolve a conflict. When a new invoice or baseline document is uploaded, the matching process will begin automatically. If all the documents match the job will be marked as complete.

If you choose not to resolve a conflict, you can click Dispute skipped. When you do, you'll be provided an opportunity to record notes to explain why you're doing so. We recommend writing detailed notes to make auditing in the future clear.
