Compliance items are used to track various legal, documentation, and business issues. When other parties fail to comply with their obligations, Compliance Items can be configured to block approval of Pay Requests automatically. In addition Compliance Notification documents are used to e-mail or fax compliance notifications and requests to your subcontractors and vendors.
In order for Compliance to be incorporated into your site, some set up is required. The system administrator or others generally do this during implementation.
