Finish an Ad Hoc Document for NUFinancials Supplier Contracts

If an Ad Hoc contract has been routed internally for collaboration, the contract can then be sent for external collaboration with the supplier if necessary. This may take place in a single or multiple rounds of collaboration. Once collaboration has completed, all contracts are submitted for approval. Ad Hoc contracts may be attached to the transactional contract for collaboration and signatures.
