About contract types

Set up the types of contracts that can be added to a contractor organization's profile. By grouping your contracts under similar types, you will can report on these more effectively and keep your records organized. 

You can associate each contract with a contract type while adding a contract to an organization's profile. There are six default contract types, plus you can add new types, or rename, edit, or remove the default types.

Each contract type can be assigned to a specific audience. Choose if the contract type applies to:

  • Contractor organizations in select categories or groups
