Unanet has special procedures that apply to the Acquisition Innovation Alliance Joint Venture (AIA JV), because BCT and AIA are separate companies with separate time reporting and accounting.
For non-BCT subcontractors, there are no special procedures in how you log into Unanet, access or create your timesheets, enter your time, and submit your timesheets.
BCT employees assigned to an AIA JV project must follow this special procedure for entering their time. This procedure is necessary to create the required timesheets in both the AIA JV and BCT accounting systems. The alternative would have been to login twice with separate user IDs and enter the same time twice, once for BCT and again for AIA.
Because AIA JV is the prime contractor, time must be entered on an AIA JV timesheet, rather than as a BCT employee. The Unanet software will automatically create the corresponding BCT timesheet from the AIA JV timesheet at the end of each timesheet period.
When you first login using your normal BCT Active Directory Account, you will see any BCT timesheets you may have from previous assignments or previously submitted time periods. Do not enter your AIA JV time in any of these.
Click the + Timesheet link as if you were going to create a new timesheet.
Without creating a new BCT timesheet, click the User pull-down at the upper right area of the screen and switch to your AIA JV alter-ego, designated by a -j appended to your normal user ID.
The diagonal bands in the new background indicate that you are creating this timesheet as an Alternate user in the AIA JV timesheet system.
Proceed to create or select a timesheet within this system. The create option is depicted below.
If you are creating a timesheet, select and add your projects and tasks in the normal manner. The project and task codes are AIA project codes.
The remaining steps follow the standard Unanet processes. Remember that to access this timesheet on subsequent logins, you will have to follow this same process, since AIA JV timesheets will not be listed with your BCT timesheets, since AIA JV is a separate company.
