AIA Doc A101 2017: states in 188.8.131.52 "...upon Substantial Completion of the Work, the Contractor may submit an Application for Payment that includes the retainage withheld from prior Applications for Payment...."
Then later in 5.2 "Final payment, constituting the entire unpaid balance of the Contract Sum, shall be made by the Owner to the Contractor when...."
So is the Contractor's Application for Payment at Substantial Completion with the retainage amount indeed the Final Application for Payment?
Is the contract fully completed by the contractor at Substantial Completion or Final Completion/Cert. of Final Payment?
