Why isn't the 'Job to Date Costs' column in the budget matching our subcontractor progress claim amounts?

Answer

If you are working in an older Procore project that is NOT using the ERP version of 'Job to Date Costs', you might notice that the 'Job to Date Costs' column in your project's budget does not match the amounts in your subcontractor progress claims.

Prior to releasing the subcontractor progress claim function, Procore users performed billing with the Progress Claims tool. The Progress Claims tool did not provide project teams with the ability to progress claim variations by line item. When a variation included in a 'progress claim' was shown, it was billed as a lump sum amount and as a single line item. When Procore released the Invoicing tool's subcontractor progress claims feature, adding variations to an progress claim required users to bill variations by line item so they would be tied to a cost code. Any existing variations included in a 'progress claim' continued to be billed as a lump sum amount and as a single line item. 

In Procore's Budget tool, all line items must be associated with a cost code to appear as a line item on a budget. This includes the default 'Job to Date Costs' column, as well as the optional 'Progress Claims' column. Because some projects had existing variations recorded online items as lump-sum amounts, those variations cannot be included in the. 'Job to Date Costs' column or the 'Progress Claim' column. This is because the lump sum amount cannot be tied to a cost code.

How do I know if my project was affected?

Your project is affected if any of the following apply:

  • You started your Procore project when the Invoicing tool was named the Progress Claims tool and created variations that corresponded to your subcontractor progress claims.

Your project is not affected if any of the following apply:

  • You started your Procore project when the Invoicing tool was named the Progress Claims tool, but you did not have any variations that corresponded to your subcontractor progress claims prior to switching to the Commitment Progress Claims tool and then the Invoicing tool.
  • Your project started with the Commitment Progress Claims or Progress Claims tool.

 

What should I do?

It is recommended that you create an additional budget view (see Set up a New Budget View) and remove the 'Job to Date Costs' and 'Progress Claims' columns. Then assign the new view to the affected projects. Because the following features do not report progress claim values by cost code, you can continue to use the Commitment tool's Summary tab, custom report features and 'Progress Claims to Date' report.
