Create a Bill of Quantities on a Main Contract using the Project's Budget

Objective

To create line items on a main contract's Bill of Quantities (BOQ) using the line items from a project's budget. 

Background

After your construction project's original budget is finalised in the project's Budget tool, it is recommended that you lock the budget. Once locked, you can use the steps below to quickly import your budget line items to your main contract's BOQ. With this action, each line item on the project's budget creates a line item on the contract's BOQ. 

Example

The example below shows you the line items on a budget that can be used to create corresponding line items on the contract's BOQ. For example, 01-000-Purpose: Labour, 01-002-Instructions: Labour, 01-010 Project Manager: Labour and so on.

    • If the BOQ has existing line items, all existing line items will be replaced with the line items in the budget.

      Procore replaces any existing line items on the Bill of Quantities with the line items current in the project's budget. This can take several minutes. Once the import is complete, a GREEN banner appears to indicate the action was successful and the line items appear in the 'Bill of Quantities' table.
