Approve and Sign a Commitment Contract

Objective

To approve and sign a commitment after awarding a subcontractor the bid. 

Background

In Procore, the term commitment refers to a subcontract or a purchase order. These commitments represent a legally enforceable financial agreement between two parties that must be fulfilled on a construction project. 

Because commitments are legally enforceable, collecting the appropriate signatures on your contract documents is strongly recommended. Procore customers can choose between two methods for managing the signature process:

  • Wet Signature. If you want to collect physical signatures on your commitments, use the Steps below. 
  • Electronic Signature. If you want to collect digital signatures on your commitments, your company's Procore Administrator can set up the DocuSign® integration. See Complete a Commitment Contract with DocuSign®.

Things to Consider

    • None
  • Additional Information:
    • This article details steps that are completed outside of Procore.
 Important
  • If the contract's creator is using the Procore + DocuSign® integration, you may be asked to digitally sign the contract instead of using the steps below. Contractors and subcontractors who are asked to sign a commitment are responsible for confirming the signature requirements with the contract creator.
