A new input feature has been released in the Observatory (Hub) which allows you to select the way in which you record BPI collaborative cash and non-cash savings figures.
Cash and non-cash savings figures for Category A and Category B contracts were previously entered as separate figures in the BPI Profile upload. This functionality is still in place should you wish to continue recording the figures in this way.
However, if you would prefer to enter one aggregated cash savings figure for Category A and Category B contracts and one aggregated figure for non-cash Category A and Category B contracts then you can now choose to upload ‘Combined’ figures at the start of the Profile upload.
Local cash and Local non-cash input has not changed.
You are not required to make any changes to Profiles that have already been submitted.
Should you find an incorrect response in a submitted Profile then the functionality to correct it is still in place. Details of how to correct a response can be found in the User Guide.
New reports have been added to the Monitor application and can be found in the ‘Savings (BPI 1)’ folder. These reports are specifically for the new ‘Combined’ upload functionality and will display submitted Category A and Category B Combined figures
