Objective

Background

If your company or project doesn't want to grant external collaborators access permission to your Procore project so they can submit their own payment applications, your team can collect the digital or paper payment applications from your payment application contacts outside of Procore. Once collected, payment application administrators can create them in Procore on each payment application contact's behalf. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions
  • Additional Information:
    • A payment application administrator can:
      • Create payment applications for all of a project's commitments.
      • Edit amounts on a Bill of Quantities when the payment application is in the Draft or Revise & Resubmit status. When multiple payment applications exist for one commitment during one billing period, you can only amounts on the latest payment application.
      • For users legally required to provide claimants with a payment programme, see  Export a Payment Programme.

Prerequisites

In addition, a payment application administrator must create a billing period for the payment application. See Manage Billing Periods

      What are the default statuses for Procore payment applications?
      Payment Application # Alphanumeric text Procore automatically assigns payment application numbers in sequence using its default numbering system or the custom numbering system defined for your project's payment applications.  Read Can I customise the numbering system for financial objects in Procore? before changing this number. 
      Billing Period* Drop-down list Accept the billing period that appears by default or select any billing period from the drop-down list. 

      Note: Payment application contacts and users with 'Standard' level permissions on the Commitments tool can only select a billing period when a payment application is NOT already associated with it. 
      Only payment application administrators can Create Billing Periods.
      Billing Date* Calendar control Shows the billing date for the selected billing period. You can change the date for this payment application with the calendar control. Only payment application administrators can Create Billing Periods.
      Period Start* Calendar control Shows the start date for the selected billing period. You can change the date for this payment application with the calendar control. Only payment application administrators can Create Billing Periods.
      Period End* Calendar control Shows the end date for the selected billing period. You can change the date for this payment application with the calendar control.

      Note: To help project managers track how payment applications impact a project's budget, the 'Billing Period' date on a payment application aligns with the work performed on a project.
      Only payment application administrators can Create Billing Periods.
