Download Bid Documents


To download bid documents as a bidder using Procore's Planroom tool.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions: 'Read-only' and above standards on Procore's Planroom tool.
  • Bid documents are only available to those outside users who have been invited to bid on a project. 
  • The project you are bidding on must be in a stage of construction that will accept bids and the expiration date must not be passed.
  • If you have made updates to your Bid documents outside of your bid package (e.g. from the Documents, Specifications, or Drawings tool), you will see a banner that informs you changes were made to these documents when you return to the bid package. You can then update the bid documents in your bid package to match the updates made outside the bid package by clicking Update. For more information on updating bid docs, see Update Bid Documents.


There are three ways you can download the bid documents.

  1. From the invitation email
