What does The Carat (^) Symbol next to the Resource Price/Unit in Primavera P6 mean?

When we assign resource to activity, sometime we can see a carat (^) symbol appear in Price/Unit column.

If resource does not have price/unit, Primavera will use the Project level price/unit which is defined in Project window -> Calculation tab
