    Change Audit




    The Change Audit screen is used to make changes to the original energy audit after the job is in a Work Ordered status (work orders have been created for all measures for the job).  Existing conditions and/or measures can be changed or deleted and new measures can be added.  Change Audit may be used multiple times for a job if necessary.  All changes can be viewed and/or printed, and once the changes are submitted and approved, the Work Order and Selected Measures screens are automatically updated with changes. 

    • For Full House audits, Change Audit must be used to make any changes to jobs that are in a Work Ordered status. Based on administrative settings for your system, you may also be required to use Change Audit for Priority (Other / No Energy Model) audits.

    The Change Audit screen can be accessed by opening the client’s record from the Client List screen and selecting Change Audit from the WORK ORDER menu.

    1. To make changes to a measure, click the Change Audit button and click Edit at the beginning of the row. 
    2. To add a new measure go directly to the appropriate weatherization screen and enter the measure.


    See the tasks below for directions on entering change audit information.

    From the WORK ORDER Menu:

    1. Select Change Audit.

    • Do not delete your existing Work Orders after making changes on this screen - existing Work Orders will be automatically updated with all changes. If you add new measures you will need to create a new work order(s) – new measures are not automatically added to existing work orders.


    When you have finished making changes, you must lock the audit before you can submit the changes.

    On the Job List screen, all jobs that have had a Change Audit will be displayed with a superscript 2 ( 2 ) at the end of the job number.
