Budget Modifications should be able to made to non budgeted codes. In many instances, we need to reallocate budget due to misses in the estimate via contingency transfer. We also may change staffing or other structure which would require new codes that were not part of the original budget. The current flow (with our Sage ERP) will not effectively allow us to use Budget modifications.

With change orders as well!! I don't understand the logic of not being able to add a cost code that isn't in the budget. It's a change, so by definition it is not in the budget

Agreed! I recently had the same two situations... 1) Needed a Budget Modification for and Estimating bust, and 2) Needed to add a couple totally new cost codes that were not budgeted for at all.
I feel like it's so close to doing what we need, but needs to be tweaked to get it fully integrated with Sage.
