Can a vendor pull out of a job they've already accepted?

Seyma Albarino 1 year ago in Vendor Portal updated 1 year ago 2

Within the vendor portal a vendor can accept or reject a job offer, but I'm wondering if there's a way a vendor can indicate to us that they can no longer complete a job they accepted. Currently, they can email us outside of XTRF, but is there a way to do it in XTRF? There doesn't seem to be a button for this. Would the best option be for the vendor to leave a note for the project manager?

Hi Seyma

I'm not sure if the note for the PM is the best option here. This note is available for the PM after Vendor completes the job in the Vendor Portal, so technically the Vendor needs to complete the job to push info that the job can't be completed. IMHO that would cause more trouble than its worth.

I think that currently, the safest option is an e-mail directly to the project manager.

Best regards,

Marek

Hi Marek,

Thanks for the response. I didn't realize the notes to the PM are only visible to the PM once the vendor completes the job. In that case, we'll continue to tell our vendors to email their PM immediately once they realize they can't complete a job.
