The health check incident talks about the notification - Purchasing Contract About to Expire. 

The system automatically checks the contracts daily and creates a notification to inform you that a purchasing contract or one of its items is about to expire.

A purchasing contract expires in the following cases:

-> The validity period of the purchasing contract expires.
-> The open target value of the purchasing contract expires.
-> The open quantity or open value of at least one purchasing contract item expires.

Note: The default priority of this type of notification is medium but can be configured. The system automatically cancels the notification after 30 days.


The notification is relevant to the employee responsible maintained in the purchasing contract.
The employee responsible receives this notification in the Inbox subview of the Work view of the Home work center.

To get information about why the purchasing contract is about to expire, you can check the release history of the purchasing contract items, the validity period of the purchasing contract, and the target value.

Choose one of the following courses of action:

-> Renew the purchasing contract by clicking Negotiate and choosing one of the options.
-> Edit the validity period or the quantities of the purchasing contract.
-> If you want the purchasing contract to expire, click Actions and choose Acknowledge in the worklist in the Inbox subview of the Work view of the Home work center.
When none of the items in the contract are about to expire anymore, or the contract has expired, the notification is completed and removed from the worklist. 

Note -The expiry check is done by the system once in a day, as a daily job. Therefore, the notification will be removed only on the following day of contract expiry or contract renewal or change in validity period.
