I am having issues with how to record Mobilization for
requisition. I have a contract for a $100,000.00 and the
contractor is asking for 20% mobilization payment but he
did not factor it in his bid. How do you guys recommend
recording the Payment so that the initial 20K payment done
to the contractor is not lost double paid?<br
If the contractor did not include Mobilization in the
bid (and you want to pay them for it even though they
left it out), then I assume that this amount is not
part of the $100,000 contract. Therefore, I recommend
you add this as a Change Order for $120,000 to the
Contract, then allow the Payment Requisition to "get"
this CO as a new item in the Schedule of Values. You
can then record the amount billed for that new line
OK, so then I assume your problem is that they gave
you a Schedule of Values for the entire contract
amount of $100K, but did not show Mobilization as a
separate line item. The fact is that 20K payment
amount will need to come out of some item (or a
combination of items) in order to show it separately.
For example, if you had a line called General
Conditions for $50K and you wanted to take the 20K out
of that, you could adjust that line item to $30 and
add a new line for Mobilization for $20K and record
the $20K payment for this period on that line. Let me
know if I don't understand still. Maybe you can post
an example of what your SOV looks like.
It depends how if/how you are using Requisition.<br
I would treat such mobilisation
payment (if was not line item in contract) as an
In my setup I issue
Requisition with 0% but I'd put Amount Certified in
Requisition Summary of 100K.
filed 'description' for RQS would be helpful to show
Another way, would
be to manipulate SOV - deduct 100K from other items
and add new lump sum item as "Mobilisation" and put
100% for this item.
you'd need to show us how your SOV looks like.
