Data Model

Contract State Flow

A distribution contract between a provider and vendor changes its state as follows:

  1. Enrolling: when the vendor enrolls in a distribution agreement (from the Agreements module), the platform creates a contract and assigns this state to it. Normally, a contract passes the Enrolling state quickly and changes its status to Pending.
  2. Pending: this state reflects the vendor’s desire to set this contract with the provider. The contract gets to this state after the enrollment.
  3. Active: the provider approved the distribution contract between the two parties.
  4. Terminated: the provider terminated the distribution contract.
  5. Rejected: the provider rejected the vendor enrollment in the distribution agreement.

Approving Pending Distribution Contracts

During the Enrollment in a Distribution Agreement process, a vendor creates a new pending distribution contract waiting for the provider’s approval. To complete the contract setting, the provider must follow these steps:

1. Identify pending contracts

2. Get contract details

Click the contract ID to open the contract and pay attention to the following information:

  • Program agreement

On the results of the above inspection, click either Approve or select Reject in the drop-down menu.

3. Approve the contract

If you approve the contract, confirm it in the pop-up window:

Click OK.

After completion of the above steps, the contract gets the Active state.
