Document How do I make a payment on top of the initial Total Contract Value (TCV)?

‘Services’ is the Compass section where you can make additional payments on top of the Total Contract Value (TCV). Each service you add to a contract will have it's own UDA / UOA / COT value. The system will combine any monetary values of all the services entered on to a contract to make up the Total Contract Value (TCV), this also allows you to see exactly what the TCV is made up of.

Choose the service the payment is for from the drop down list. You will then need to select whether or not the service is to be recurring or non-recurring.


Recurring means that the service will continue to be paid for each year the contract is open for. Regardless to when during the financial year the amount is entered, the full annual value should be entered and the system will automatically pro-rata it, starting payment from the date you have input as the start date.


Non recurring means this will only be paid in the specified financial year and for the period the payment is payable only. An end date for the service must be entered (which must be on or before the end date of the current financial year end). The value should be the actual value for the period that is payable and not a yearly figure.
