Create a Payment Program

flag-australia.png This tutorial discusses a feature that is available to Procore customers in Australia and New Zealand. 


To create a payment program that contains subcontractor claimed amounts, approved amounts and reasons for the difference between claimed and approved amounts.


In Australia and New Zealand, a payment program is a legal notice that is served on a claimant in response to a claim for payment. Construction businesses operating in Australia and New Zealand are creating payment programs to facilitate the progress claim approval process, as well as claims of work performed by subcontractors.

In a typical payment program workflow, subcontractors submit an progress claim for work performed. The head contractor will review the progress claim and either approve or reject the amounts that the subcontractor is claiming for work performed. When a payment program is created from the progress claim, the amounts claimed, amounts approved and reasons for rejected amounts will be noted on the payment program form.

Things to Consider

    • 'Admin' level permissions on the project Commitments tool.
  • Requirements:
    • The 'Show Amounts Subcontractors Claim' setting must be enabled in the Invoicing tool. See Configure Settings: Invoicing.
    • For amounts to appear on the payment program, subcontractors must enter amounts in the 'Work Completed This Period' and 'Materials Presently Stored' columns on the subcontractor progress claim. See Submit a Progress Claim as a Subcontractor.
