Automatically Create a Vendor Lien Notice

Create a vendor lien notice to record notification from a vendor about a lien for project-related costs. You can attach an electronic copy of the lien notice you received from the vendor to the vendor lien notice.

If needed, you can select internal users who should review the lien notice. Reviewers should use the steps outlined in the Review and Approve Liens topic to review a lien notice.
  1. Optional: If you haven't already done so, set up your lien management defaults to allow ProContractor to automatically create vendor lien notices.

You cannot manually added a subcontract change order to the lien notice for the related subcontract.

  3. Optional: Manage the lien notice and attach an electronic copy of the lien notice.
  4. Optional: Select the users and/or the document routing distribution group that will review the lien notice.
  5. Optional: If needed, contact the reviewers to advise them to review the lien notice.
