Order KCIs

Once an order has been placed with a supplier, future updates on the order will come via KCI (Keep Customer Informed) updates. KCIs will have a reason e.g. order has been updated, milestone was reached, etc) and in some cases will represent a problem or delay.

Problem Codes

Where there is a problem or delay to an order, the problem will be stated in the KCI from a standardised set of problem codes. Depending on the situation and accompanying KCI, the code will be:

  • For information only
  • Reason for the order being cancelled
  • Reason for the order being delayed
  • Reason why a reappoint is required for the order
