Question

Can Project Managers see Bill or Cost Rates?

Solution

Cost rates are hourly pay rates (straight pay for non-exempt or contractors, and derived hourly rate for salaried employees). Bill rates are the hourly rate you have contracted with your customer, typically associated with labor categories. The only people who can see bill or cost rates are Admins or those with the Bill Rate Manager or Cost Rate Manager role. A Project Manager cannot see Bill or Cost rates in Unanet unless an Administrator grants the user Bill Rate Manager and/or Cost Rate Manager roles within the PM's Profile.

We commonly see people given the Project Manager role and Bill Rate Manager role so that they may run Project reports showing Bill rates. It is rare, but occasionally will happen, that the Project Manager is given the Cost Rate Manager role.


Note: If you would like PM's to see aggregated cost but not individual cost, you may choose to enable the Allow Project Cost Reporting For Non-Cost Rate Managers property (Admin > Properties > Unanet > Access/Permissions > Rate Permissions). This will allow PM's to see aggregated cost but not individual cost.
