Symptoms

Incorrect transaction control error in iProcurement when an expenditure type that violates transaction controls is charged to the project. The user is a contingent worker. The pre-approved batch in PA gives 'This item would violate a project level transaction control' when this transaction is
entered, but when the same information is entered in iProc, the following is received:

The project/task transaction controls prohibit contingent worker transactions.

The errors are the same when the user entering the transactions is an employee.

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Contingent worker
2. Create a project with a transaction control against the expenditure type 'Airfare'.
3. Enter a Pre-approved batch using charging airfare. Error received is: This item would violate a project level transaction control.
4. In iProcurement | Requisition | Selected an Approved Requisition and Copied to Cart | Checkout => Changed the PA info to the project above and when saved receive:

The project/task transaction controls prohibit contingent worker transactions.
