Why are my variation line items duplicated on my subcontractor progress claim?

This answer is applicable only when a Commitment Variation or a Commitment Potential Variation is created before the first subcontractor progress claim on the project and the Subcontractor SOV tab is disabled. See Enable or Disable the Subcontractor SOV Tab on a Commitment.


For ERP synced projects, when you create a line item for a commitment variation (or a commitment potential variation, if using a 2-tier variation setting) and the "Line Item" section of "New Line Item" is selected, Procore creates the following items:

  • A new $0 line item on the commitment's (original) schedule of values (shown below).
  • A new line item on the variation for the actual amount.


Since both the commitment's schedule of values and the variation's schedule of values are reflected on the subcontractor progress claim, this line item appears twice on the subcontractor progress claim:

  • In the (original) schedule of values section for $0 (line 2 below).
  • In the variation section for the actual amount (line 3.1 below).


There currently is no functionality in Procore that can hide that $0 line item from the subcontractor progress claim. When creating a subcontractor progress claim, the $0 line item should be disregarded and only the variation line item should be billed against.
