A proposal scheme is a scheme which has been proposed but has not been fully approved or activated and is excluded from calculations and reports throughout DealTrack. Proposal schemes enable you to configure the terms of the scheme and of the deals within the scheme during the scheme negotiation process.
Proposal schemes can be found in the Proposals tab within the trading partners area, where they can be created and edited.
Once you are happy with the terms of a proposal scheme, it can be activated. If the scheme is configured to use automatic workflow, then it will be automatically activated once it has been fully signed.
If the scheme is configured to use manual workflow, or does not have a configured workflow, then the activation process is manual and can occur at any time.
More information is available on proposal schemes here.
