The Subcontractor BOQ is separate from a the general BOQ tab on a commitment. Once completed,  the line items on the Subcontractor BOQ can be submitted for review and approval of the work.  By default, the Subcontractor BOQ tab is enabled in Procore's Commitments tool.

There are two ways to enable the Subcontractor BOQ tab:

  • You can enable the tab for all commitments. To do this,  you will need 'Admin' permission on the Commitments tool.
  • You can enable the tab on individual commitments. To do this in the Invoicing tool, you will need 'Admin' permission on the Commitments tool.

Once enabled,  the data entered by users on the Subcontractor BOQ tab is automatically included in subcontractor payment applications. To learn more, see About Subcontractor Payment Applications.
