Contracts Import


The Contracts Import process read files from the ./Incoming/Contract in the SFTP. These files will be moved to the archive folder located at ./Incoming/Archive/Contract before being processed in alphanumeric order.

Unique Keys

  • Contract Name
  • Contract #
  • Status
  • Supplier Number or Supplier Name


Once a contract is published you can only change the status to inactive. It cannot be changed to draft status. You can update the supplier name and supplier number of an contract using the Contract number when the contract is in draft status. You cannot do this when the contract is in published status.

Uploading Attachments and Legal Agreements

To include attachments with your contracts import, place the CSV and attachments in a zip file, and use the attachments columns to specify the relative path (within the zip file). Do the same thing for Legal Agreement files.
