Update a Subcontractor SOV as an Invoice Contact


To update a Subcontractor SOV for a subcontract as an invoice contact


A Subcontractor Schedule of Values (Subcontractor SOV) on a commitment is typically completed when the upstream contractor (for example, a general contractor) requires a detailed line item breakdown of work performed by a downstream contractor (for example, a subcontractor). 


A general contractor has created a subcontract and one of the line item on the commitment's general SOV tab is for $40,000.00 in materials. To better understand how that money is being allocated on the project, the general contractor requires a more detailed line breakdown of the materials from the subcontractor.

First, the general contractor enables the Subcontractor SOV tab on the Commitments tool. Next, the general contractor sends an email a request to the subcontractor. After receiving the general contractors request, the subcontractor adds a line item to the Subcontractor SOV to show that the materials are being provided by four (4) different vendors that they have their own agreements with. When updating the Subcontractor SOV, the subcontractor adds four (4) line items to the Subcontractor SOV to show how the $40,000.00 for materials is allocated:

  • Materials Vendor 1: $10,000.00 
  • Materials Vendor 2: $5,000.00
  • Materials Vendor 3: $12,000.00
  • Materials Vendor 4: $13,000.00

In Procore, a commitment always includes a general Schedule of Values tab and it can also be configured to include an additional Subcontractor SOV tab. See Enable or Disable a Subcontractor SOV on a Commitment. Once the Subcontractor SOV tab is enabled, a contractor can then forward the commitment by email to subcontractor's Invoice Contact with a message requesting that the contanct add line items to Subcontractor SOV tab. To add a SSOV to the commitment, the subcontractor must be granted the appropriate permission to the Commitments tool.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • To update line items to a Subcontractor SOV, you must be designated as an 'Invoice Contact.' See Add Invoice Contacts to a Purchase Order or Subcontract. You must also have:
      • 'Read Only' level permissions on the project's Commitments tool and be a member of the 'Private' list on the General tab of the commitment.
      • 'Standard' level permissions on the project's Commitments tool. 
  • Additional Information:
  • For companies using the ERP Integrations tool:
    • The line items added to a Subcontractor SOV  do NOT sync with an integrated ERP system.  Currently, only the line items in a commitment's SOV sync with an integrated ERP system.


If you are a subcontractor who received an invitation to update the Subcontractor SOV, you can alternatively click the View in Procore link in the email to navigate directly to the Subcontractor SOV tab. If you are not logged into Procore at that time, you will be prompted to enter you user credentials.
  1. Navigate to the Commitments tool. 
  2. Click the Summary or Detailed tab. 
  3. Locate the commitment to work with. Then click Edit
  4. Next to the General tab of the commitment, click the Subcontractor SOV tab. 
  5. Click Edit.
    Note: The status of the Subcontractor SOV is set to Draft.
  6. For each line item on the commitment you will enter a description and cost until the total amount of each line item is allocated. To do this:
  7. Click Add Line.
    1. Continue adding lines as needed until the entire amount of the line item on the commitment is allocated. 
    2. In the Amount box, enter a breakdown for the amount being allocated. 
    3. In the text box that appears, enter a description for the amount being allocated. 
  8. Click Submit
    • The Submit button is dimmed and unavailable until the Remaining to Allocate fields in the Subcontractor SOV all read $0.00.
    • After you click the button, Procore changes the status of the Subcontractor SOV to Under Review
    • You will NOT be able to edit your submission unless the contractor changes the status of the Subcontractor SOV to Revise & Resubmit
