The Contract Violations Report will show any items outside of the Contract Price for the selected date range. Contract Prices can be maintained via the Vendor Item by either direct edit or import template. Vendors are listed separately and any item is listed for each invoice that the violation impacts. This report can also display underpricing by a Vendor as well as overpricing.
This report is typically ran monthly or quarterly to investigate any Contract Violations that occur and hold Vendors accountable to the prices that they're quoting.
