Need a downloadable AIA G702™ Application and Certificate for Payment forms to submit an invoice or bill on a project?
When required to do so contractors use the G702™ and G703™ when they need to submit an invoice/bill for work they've performed on a project.
The architect is required to certify the G702™ document submitted by the contractor.
The architect's certification is what tells the Owner whether or not to pay the contractor, and whether or not to pay the invoice amount or a different amount.
When using the G702™ form you'll be required to show:
The claim by the AIA® is that this form can cause payment to be made quicker, and also reduce the possibility of error.
The G703 Continuation Sheet must be used in conjunction with the G702 form.
It breaks the the contract down into portions of work using a schedule of values that is included in the the general conditions.
If the contractor has completed the G702 application properly and if the architect accepts it then he/she will sign the G703 which signals to the owner that a payment in the amount indicated is due to the contractor.
The form also allows the architect to certify an amount that is different from the amount you invoiced for.
But s/he must include a strong, bonafide explanation as to why s/he changed it.
That would be so frustrating to say the least - even without the fact that now you may have to pay for a brand new form so that the architect will sign off on it!
Pay close attention when visiting websites that state they have downloadable AIA forms because they don't really - they're 'AIA-Like' documents.
It used to be that the 'AIA-Like' was 'hidden' within the fine text on the various webpages. I'm not sure if the AIA had anything to do with it but now most of the websites make that statement (or something like it) a little more obvious.
If you absolutely have to have a downloadable AIA form you'll have no choice but to purchase it from the AIA - but be prepared to lose an arm *and* a leg in the deal! ;)
Do you use actual AIA forms or do you use a software program, or do you do both? Please let me know in the comments section below. :o)
