Approve and Sign a Subcontract


To approve and sign a subcontract after awarding a winning bid. 


Because subcontracts 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:

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission:
    • None
  • Additional Information:
    • This article details steps that are completed outside of Procore.
  • 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.
