Approve a Prime Contract


To approve a Prime Contract so that you can begin to create change orders, invoices, and payments.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission:
    • 'Admin' on the project's Prime Contract tool
  • Additional Information:
    • The Prime Contract is ready to be approved once the owner has agreed to the schedule of values (SOV) listed on the Prime Contract.
    • You cannot create change orders, invoices, or payments until the Prime Contract has been approved.


  1. Navigate to the project's Prime Contract tool.
  2. Click the Edit button in the top-right of the contract. 
  3. In the Status field, select Approved from the drop-down menu.  
  4. Click Save. The action buttons in the right pane for creating change orders, invoices, and payments will change from gray (inactive) to orange (active), and will now be clickable.
