Objective

To set or release retention for line items on a MC/Client payment application with the Client Contracts tool. 

Background

You can use the steps below to:

  • Set the Retention Amount. Enter a percentage to calculate the withholding amount. This percentage will be applied to all of the line items on the payment application. For example, enter 10% to withhold 10% on each payment application line item. 
  • Release the Retention Amount. Enter a percentage to calculate the amount to release on the payment application. This moves the calculated amount from the 'Currently Retained' column to the 'Released this Period' column in the main contract. You can adjust this amount to perform a partial or full release as follows: 
    • A partial release indicates an amount is being withheld. For example, you would enter 50% if you are halfway through the project and your payment application is for a progress payment.
    • A final release means you are releasing the full amount and retention is no longer being withheld. For example,  you would enter 100% after all of a project's contractual obligations are substantially complete and your payment application is for final payment.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
