01Application for Payment: General Form
The applications for payment forms that are most often used are:

02Application for Payment: Schedule of Values
The Schedule of Values is a sheet on which items are listed along with their unit prices, quantities, and summaries of what has been paid and what is being certified for payment. It provides a general overview of the project status. Depending on how the contract is written, it can be a lump sum value or an itemized list that will provide a better understanding of the work being billed.
Be sure to provide a sample sheet during the negotiation process and during the RFP and bid processes. You can later use these as your schedule of values, ensuring a smoother process.
03Application for Payment: Schedule #2
Schedule #2 provides a comprehensive list of the subcontractors that took part during the respective period and performed works under the specified contract. It's required to justify the amounts being certified under the schedule of values. This is very specific in some contracts and might require additional documentation, such as payrolls, certifications, and lien waivers to make sure that all subs have been paid.
04Application for Payment: Schedule 3
Schedule #3 under the application for payment is a document that releases and presents waivers of claims and stop notices from all subcontractors who are furnishing labor, services, or materials covered by the certificate for payment. You acknowledge and guarantee the client in this document that there will not be any claim by the subcontractors due to payment, performance, or any other possible claim.
05Application for Payment: Schedule 4
This is literally a schedule. Some contracts require that you submit the latest and most up-to-date project schedule so they can make sure the project is moving along as expected. The customer might also ask for photos or videos documenting the project's progress.
