What is your role in the payment applications process?

When using the Payment application Management tools in Procore, only an payment application administrator or an payment application contact on a commitment can create a subcontractor payment application

For payment application Administrators

An payment application administrator has these options to create payment applications: (1) Send an 'Invite to Bill' to provide payment application contacts with the ability to submit their own payment applications in Procore or (2) Gather digital or paper payment applications, outside of Procore and create them yourself in Procore. With the first option, you must provide an external collaborator with access permission to the Project level Commitments tool and add that person as payment application contact on a commitment. With the second option, no external access permissions are required.

For payment application contacts

After an external collaborator is granted payment application contact permissions, they have these options. If invited to bill, a contact can (1) accept the invite and submit a payment application before the Open billing period's due date or (2) decline the invite without submitting a payment application. Payment application contacts who don't receive an invite, also have permission to create new payment applications for their commitment for the Open billing period in the Project level Commitments tool. 

  • As a payment application contact, always confirm the appropriate steps to use with the party that contracted your services before submitting your payment application in Procore
  • Payment application administrators do NOT always choose to add payment application contacts on a project's commitments. Some payment application administrators prefer to gather digital or paper payment applications (outside of Procore). Once collected, they create payment applications in Procore on the contact's behalf. See Create a Subcontractor Payment application on Behalf of a Payment Application Contact.
