Subcontractor Payment Instructions

Purpose: AIA type pay applications ensure subcontractor payments are made on a percentage-of-completion basis against mutually executed contract items (the “Schedule Values”). The pay application simplifies contract administration for Burke Builders so that it can pay its Subcontractors on quicker terms.

Deadlines: Subcontractors shall submit pay applications no later than the 25th day of the month. Applications submitted after the cutoff may result in a payment delay of a month. Subcontractors may include work completed through the last day of the calendar month. Please email pay applications to the accounting department at

Forms: Subcontractor may prepare pay applications using the Burke Builders ACP & CS forms (find at links below), AIA Forms G702S & G703, or Subcontractors own equivalent forms.

Application and Certification for Payment (ACP Form): The ACP form certifies the total subcontract price, work completed, retainage, payments received, and payment requested. A signed ACP form must be provided for each pay application.
