Create An Authorization Request

Learn how to create a request to start a ticket.

Authorizations can be created on the mobile app or the website. For the most ease of use, we recommend using the mobile app which has been developed with the field user in mind.

Create an Authorization

When you are field-directed and unsure if the proposed work falls outside of the contracted scope, you may create an Authorization request that is sent to your internal project manager. Your project manager will review the request and either approve it, reject it, or forward it to the GC's project manager for review and approval. Once approved, the request automatically turns into a Field Work T&M Ticket and you may begin to track labor, material and capture a signature.

  • Sign in to the PeerAssist Mobile App and make sure you're on the T&M app.

You will need to wait for approval or rejection of your request from your project manager. If your PM forwards this request to the GC's PM, you will need to wait for them to respond. An approved Authorization Request automatically turns into an active Field Work T&M ticket to which you can add labor and material.
