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 downstream collaborators. In a typical payment program workflow, downstream collaborators submit progress claims for work performed. The upstream collaborator reviews the progress claim and approves the amounts on the claim.

flag-australia.png The Payment Program feature is designed for Procore users in Australia and New Zealand to satisfy the legal requirement to provide claimants with a payment program. However, this feature is available for use by all Progress Claim Management users. 

You can export a payment program to show the following information:

  • Claimed amounts
  • All 'Approved' amounts
  • Reasons for 'Rejected' amounts

Things to Consider



  1. Navigate to the Project level Invoicing tool. 
  2. Click the Subcontractor tab.
  3. Locate the most recent progress claim in the Progress Claim # column. The click the link to open it. 
    • You can also open progress claims from the Commitments tool. To do this, navigate to the Project level Commitments tool. In the Contracts tab, click the Number link, and then click the Progress Claims tab. Locate the progress claim in the Progress Claims (Commitment progress claims) table and click the Progress Claim Position or Progress Claim # link.  

    • How do I find the most recent progress claim? Review the values in the Progress Claim Position column. Each progress claim is assigned a number, in the order progress claims are created. This column sorts progress claims from newest to oldest by default. To change the sort order, click the Overflow menu in the column heading and choose one (1) of the Sort By This Column options. 
  4. In the progress claim, click the Export button and choose PDF from the drop-down menu.
