Learn About AIA Billing & how to fill out an AIA G-702/G-703 so that you can be paid on time!

Quite frequently, in the construction industry, it is a requirement that you submit your progress billings on AIA Forms G-702/G-703.

About AIA BillingThe AIA billing system is a standardized method of construction percentage of completion contract billing (IE: Progress Billing) developed by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) in 1992.

The AIA billing system was developed to provide a standardized method of submitting job related paperwork to send to architects and others by a contractor in order for the contractor to be paid for work performed on a construction project.

Typically, the AIA Billing System consists of two forms or pages:

  • G-702 Contractors Application for Payment
  • G-703 Continuation Sheet

These forms serve as both the contractors application for current payment due and the architect’s certification that payment is due to the contractor.  Its use can expedite payment and reduce the possibility of errors.

If the application is properly completed and acceptable to the architect, the architect’s signature certifies to the owner that a payment in the amount indicated on Line 8 of the G-702 is due to the contractor.  This form allows the architect to certify an amount different than the amount applied for, with explanations provided by the architect as to why the amount is different.

Most anyone will tell you that completing the AIA G-702 and G-703 forms by hand is frustrating and difficult.  To fill out one correctly, you pretty much have to:

  • forget about any basic accounting principals you’ve ever learned
  • ignore change orders that have been submitted or approved, but not processed
  • ignore money that is still outstanding from previously submitted applications for payment

You need to realize that the payment applications that you submit are an important piece of your overall cash flow management.  When your payment applications get screwed up – -bad things happen; none of which put you in “good standing” with the General Contractor or Project Owner, and can ultimately damage your  company’s overall cash position.
