Add Line Items to a Bill of Quantities on a Main Contract


To add line items to a Bill of Quantities (BOQ) on a main contract.


A BOQ is an itemized list of all the work items on a project. Each line item shows the work item's cost.

Things to Consider




  1. Navigate to the project's Main Contracts tool.
  2. Locate the contract to update and click its Number link. 
  3. Click the Bill of Quantities tab.
  4. Click Add Line.
  5. Complete the data entry as follows:
    1. Budget Code
      Select a budget code or click Create Budget Code. See What is a budget code in Procore's WBS? 
    2. Description
      Enter a description for the line item. For example, type: Monthly Service Fee
    3. Qty
      Enter the number of units.
    4. UoM
      Select a Unit of Measure (UoM) from the drop-down list. To learn about the default selections in this list, see Which units of measure are included in Procore's master list? and Add a Unit of Measure to the Unit of Measure Master List.
    5. Unit Cost
      Enter the cost per unit in this box. You'll notice that the value in this column contains four (4) decimal points (for example, £0.0000) to allow you to enter the specific value required to calculate accurate pricing. 
      If you are buying 50,000 units for £1,006,625.00, you would enter a unit price of £20.1325.
