What is a Pay Application in Construction?

Before we dive into a continuation sheet, recall that a pay application in construction is a formal request for payment submitted by contractors to the project owner or general contractor. This document details the work completed and materials supplied within a specific period, typically a month. Pay applications ensure that contractors receive timely payments for their services, maintaining cash flow and project momentum. There can be two parts to a Pay Application - the covering Application for Payment, and an attached Continuation sheet.

What is a Continuation Sheet?

A continuation sheet in construction is used to supplement a pay application. Typically landscape A4, the sheet provides a comprehensive breakdown of the work completed and materials supplied within a specific period. It lists individual tasks, their associated costs, and the percentage of work completed, ensuring transparency and accuracy in the billing process.

The AIA G703 form, also known as the Continuation Sheet, is a document created by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) to supplement the AIA G702 form, also known as the Application and Certificate for Payment. It is used alongside the AIA G702 form to provide a detailed breakdown of the payment request. As AIA and it's forms are a trademarked by the American Institute of Architects, the AIA Document G702 and G703 require you buy a licence from the AIA.
