Subcontractors – Electronic Billing

Subcontractor Billing Information

Choate Construction Company accepts electronic applications for payment from vendors with subcontracts and purchases orders.  In order to submit billings electronically the company must sign up for electronic billing and have a current contract in our system.  If your company does not have a contract and are billing on an invoice, please submit your invoice to

The application for payment information is calculated directly from our financial system.  Therefore, there may be a delay between when:

  1. Information is received.
  2. It is reviewed and processed.
  3. It appears on the electronic form.

Step One:  Sign up for Electronic Billing & Signature

Who needs to sign up?

Each company is only required to sign up for electronic billing once.  However, anyone who completes or signs billings (including witnesses) for the organization will need to sign up for an electronic signature login.  Companies may have multiple logins for different employees within their organization.

How do I sign up?

Be sure to have your company’s tax ID # available and complete the Payment Application System Access Request form.  Keep the user name and password selected in a safe place for future billings. If you forget your username or password, here are the instructions to update your password.
