Bill Rates

Use bill rates to track the monetary amount of both incurred and future scheduled hours. Ultimately the bill rate that’s stored within the project (in project settings), is the rate used for the calculation. You can set up templates to determine the rate when someone gets assigned to a project.

In Account Settings, you can set up the master bill rate matrix that’s used each time a new project is created. Once a project is created, bill rates are locked in. Changes to the master template do not affect existing or past projects.

How to create the default bill rates matrix in Account Settings

The default bill rate is applied to all people in the organization. This is useful when your organization uses a blended rate. You can create exceptions for either specific roles or disciplines by adding them to the matrix of bill rates. Roles or disciplines that do not have a set bill rate will use the default rate.

To define the bill rate rate for a role and discipline, fill out the bill rate in the field where the two intersect. When the discipline and role have been assigned to a person, the system will automatically apply the corresponding bill rate.

If an entire discipline or group of roles uses the same rate, you can specify that by only building out one row or column

Rates from the bill rate matrix can be overridden by a rate specified within a person’s profile.
