Are there any system limitations when creating multiple prime contracts?


Yes. When using the Prime Contract tool to create multiple prime contracts on a single construction project, please be aware of these limitations:

  • You will NOT be able to import individual line items from the project's Budget tool. 
  • You will be limited to one (1) set of granular permissions for each project. Procore does NOT support the creation of unique granular permissions for each contract on a project. See Grant Granular Permissions in a Permission Template.
  • You will NOT be able to sort, add filters, or group report data from the Prime Contract tool in other tools (e.g., You will not be able to sort change events by each prime contract in the Change Events list page). To workaround this limitation, Procore recommends building a custom project repor to show financial data that is sorted, filtered, or grouped by it's respective prime contract. See Create a Custom Project Report.
  • You will NOT have the ability to map your commitments (e.g., purchase orders and subcontracts) to multiple prime contracts for the purpose of auto-filling cost data. If the same cost code & cost type combination is used on more than one (1) prime contract, the system will auto-fill the direct cost amount and/or subcontractor invoice amount to your owner invoices. To avoid this limitation, you can create different billing periods or sub jobs for each prime contract.
