About Subcontractor Progress Claims


To provide Procore users with information about subcontractor progress claims in Procore. 


The Progress Claim Management solution features the Project level Invoicing tool. This tool handles two types of progress claims: subcontractor progress claims and owner progress claims. Subcontractor progress claims originate in the project's Commitments tool. Before you can create a progress claim, your project team must create a commitment for the project, establish a billing period, and decide who will have permission to submit a progress claim.

A Subcontractor Progress Claim is a request for payment submitted by a business or individual who has entered into a binding agreement with another contracting party. In Procore, a subcontractor progress claim is an equivalent term for a payable progress claim.
