Calculating earned value of projects

Earned Value as seen in the Progress widget represents the actual value of billed time and expenses on projects. In other words, it is the 'Used' contract amount. CORE takes into account the following time and expense attributes when computing earned value:

Expense Entries:

  • Charge amount
  • Write Up/Down (Markup)
  • Billable Status

Earned value calculations exclude:

  • Item taxes 1/2/3
  • Project-level tax
  • Entries that are marked billed and not actually billed
  • Entries on draft invoices
  • Retainers
  • Discounts
