AIA Forms G702 & G703
Contractor's Application &
Certificate for Payment

The AIA contractor form G702™ Application and Certificate for Payment is a convenient form with which the contractor can apply for payment and the architect can certify that payment is due.

The AIA document G702 Application and Certificate for Payment requires the contractor to show:

  • The status of the contract sum to date, including the total dollar amount of the work completed and stored to date;

  • The amount of the retainage (if any);

  • The total of previous payments (if any);

  • The summary of the change orders (if any);

  • The amount of the payment currently being requested

AIA Document G702–1992 serves as both the contractor’s application and the architect’s certification.

Its use can expedite payment and reduce the possibility of error. 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 is due to the contractor.

The AIA® Form G703 Is
The Continuation Sheet For The G702

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 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.

No one but the AIA itself is legally allowed to sell downloadable, digital format AIA forms and documents


There are companies that sell programs that:

  • A) Will fill in your hard-copy AIA forms for you and

  • B) Create and print forms that are similar to the AIA (the entire form along with everything you entered is printed on an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper).

If you don't absolutely have to use AIA forms then this program is so definitely the way to go. However because it's the best of both worlds, if you do have to use AIA forms you'll still be able to use this program to fill in your hard-copy AIA forms.

It's the best of both worlds.

Use the forms that are like the AIA forms when not required to use the actual AIA forms and then when required you'll use the program to fill in your hard-copy AIA forms.

Here's the company that I've been partnered with for so long that they now give *exclusive discounts to my readers*. :o)

Enter the code TCG in the discount/coupon box if it's not already there to make sure you get up to 40% off of your purchase - they have various discounts for the many modules contained within the software, all of which can be purchased separately and/or together as one software program.

When you get to the website if you'd like to cruise around a bit to see what else is there please feel free to cruise. There are some great programs that help with the paperwork of construction as well as vehicle tracking, etc.

Just *please be absolutely certain that you have the code TCG entered in the discount box and that the discount is showing in your basket *before* you make your purchase.

It's too late if you wait until after your purchase… :o(

Should you have any difficulties with obtaining your discount please do not make your purchase and instead notify me or the guys through the contact at their website *before* making your purchase to get your discount. That's never happened before but just in case it does… :o)


I'm in the process of combining several websites (lots of work but it'll be great when done).

Until I get everything moved from the original TheContractorsGroup website these AIA links will take you between the older website and this one.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Look Who's Shacking Up Together!

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)
