Add Financial Markup to Commitment Change Orders


To add financial markup to change orders associated with a commitment


Financial markup can be a fixed amount or a percentage that shows the difference between the cost of a good or service and it's selling price. Using the financial markup options in Procore's Commitments tool, project teams can choose between applying a markup percentage (%) on financial line items:

  • Horizontal Markup. Applies a percentage for financial markup on individual line items in a commitment.
  • Vertical Markup. Applies a percentage for financial markup on all of the commitment's line items. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission:
    • 'Admin' on the project's Commitments tool.
  • Prerequisites:
  • Additional Information:
    • Financial markup is distributed proportionally on each line item in a change order's Schedule of Value (SOV).
    • Financial markup is applied to the cost codes and categories on those SOV lines in the budget.
    • Horizontal markup is included in the SOV's subtotal and is included in the vertical calculation when the markups are used in conjunction. 
  • Limitations:
    • When you apply financial markup to a CCO, you cannot add those CCOs to your subcontractor invoices.
