Objective

To update the configuration settings on the project's Funding tool.

Background

When setting up a Procore project, a user with 'Admin' level permissions on the Funding tool configures the tool's settings. The settings are applied globally to all of the fundings in the project:

  • Funding Configuration. Define the number of change order tiers for the project. This grants users with 'Standard' level permissions on the Funding tool the privilege to create potential change orders. You can also choose to make a Schedule of Values (SOV) editable (or not) when its in the 'Approved' status.
  • Default Distributions. Choose which project users should receive email notifications.
  • Funding Sources. List the project's funding sources. A funding source can include federal, state, and local funds, bonds, grants, tax revenue, loans, programs, and more.

You can also set up customized settings to apply to each funding in the project. To learn more, see Edit the Advanced Settings on a Funding.
