   b. Create Solicitation Amendment > Review > Save as Draft
   c. Negotiations > Advanced search > Click on the negotiation number hyperlink.
2. See the errors - a numbered sequence of java null pointer exceptions followed by the saved as a draft message

NOTE:  In the case of solicitation or amendments, regardless whether contract terms are attached or not, in the review page the error occurs when selecting "Save Draft".  This does not prevent the users from proceeding with the solicitation. The user can ignore the error messages and proceed with other actions.
