Internally, we do everything possible to expedite the process and obtain approvals on Change Orders. If there is a change order that is a back charge from one trade to another or if there is something that was omitted from the subcontract and is a legitimate change order, those will be processed very quickly as they do not require the project’s Ownership approval.
If a change order is being processed through the project’s Ownership then we all must wait until it goes through the formal acceptance of Sigma receiving a signed change order then Sigma issuing the subsequent subcontractor change orders.
Once a formal change order has been executed by Sigma and your firm you can then include it in the Pay Application process. Up until then it is considered pending.
