At what tier can an upstream collaborator approve a change order?


If you are a Procore user who has created a contract or funding with an upstream collaborator (see What is an upstream collaborator?) in your Procore account, a user with the required user permissions can configure a change order tier setting to manage the upstream change order approval workflow for the following Procore Project Financials tools:

  • Client Contracts
  • Funding
  • Prime Contracts

The name of the Procore tool in your environment depends on the language and point-of-view dictionary configured in Procore. See What dictionaries and languages are available in the Procore web application?

When configuring the number of change order tiers for one of these tools, a user with 'Admin' permission on the tool can choose between three (3) different tier settings. See What are the different change order tiers in Project Financials? 

Are you a downstream collaborator who has been asked to approve a commitment change order in Procore? A downstream collaborator is a person, business, or company who possesses a contractual agreement to complete work on the project being managed in Procore. If so, see Approve or Reject Commitment Change Orders


If you are an upstream collaborator for the company managing the contract in Procore, you may be granted the appropriate permissions to approve change orders for one (1) of the Procore tools listed below (only when the tool is configured to use the two (2) or three (3) tier change order setting).
