STEPS TO REPRODUCE
---------------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1) Go to CLM Contracting Professional > Buyer Work Center > Requisitions

2) Search for a Requisition in the Demand Workbench

3) Using the Document Builder, create a new Award from a single Requisition line

4) Go to the Lines tab on the new award and click on the Plus sign Icon under the "Options" column to create a new option line. You will receive a null pointer exception error and will be unable to add the option line.

This also occurs if you try to create a new SLIN by clicking on the plus sign in that column, or if you attempt to duplicate the line as a new one. You will received the same null pointer exception in each instance.
