To submit a request to Procore to bulk-import a list of cost codes to the Company or Project level Admin tool.
If your company or project requires a unique cost code structure, you can import custom cost codes into either the Company level or Project level Admin tool. Some companies design their cost code structure to align with the MasterFormat from the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI). Other companies decide to implement a cost code structure that is unique to their industry, organization, or project environment. Regardless of the structure, you can submit a request to have a Procore representative import the custom cost codes for you or you can expedite the process and perform your own cost codes import using the Procore Imports app.
Note: The Company and Project Level Admin tools include a 16 Division Cost Code Structure that aligns to the CSI MasterFormat. See What are Procore's Default Cost Codes?
