Exploring the Clause Library

Objective

After completing this lesson, you will be able to Navigate a Clause Library admin object and explain what it represents in SAP Fieldglass..

Clause Library

The Clause Library allows Administrators to create and maintain a list of clauses, clause categories, and clause sections and their content for use within the SOW module.

Clauses may contain the legal terms for standard regulatory governance polices and conditions and may outline the contractual language or agreement between a buyer and a supplier.

Clauses for SOWs can be predefined in SAP Fieldglass. They will appear in the SOWs to which they have been associated.

Clauses must be defined in the Clause Library before they can be added to SOW templates. Clauses can also be added when creating an SOW from a template, and they can be copied from the library.

The details page includes the full text of the clauses included in the category.

6If the clause is set to Read Only, the clause text cannot be edited within the SOW in which it is used. The clauses illustrated here are not set to read only because they are meant to be revised to include details of the projects for which the SOW is being created.
