Why are my variation line items duplicated on my subcontractor payment application?

This answer is applicable only when a Commitment Variation (CV) or a Commitment Potential Variation (CPV) is created before the first subcontractor invoice on the project and the Subcontractor BOQ tab is disabled. See Enable or Disable the Subcontractor BOQ Tab on a Commitment.


For ERP synced projects, when you create a line item for a CV (or a CPV, if using a 2-tier variation setting), and the "Line Item" section of "New Line Item" is selected, Procore creates the following items:

  • A new $0 line item on the commitment's (original) programme of values (shown below)
  • A new line item on the variation for the actual amount 


Since both the commitment's programme of values and the variation's programme of values are reflected on the subcontractor invoice, this line item will appear twice on the subcontractor invoice:

  • In the (original) programme of values section for $0 (line 2 below)
  • In the variation section for the actual amount (line 3.1 below)


There currently is no functionality in Procore that can hide that $0 line item from the subcontractor invoice. When creating a subcontractor invoice, the $0 line item should be disregarded and only the variation line item should be billed against.
