In Procore, a downstream collaborator is a person, business or entity that enters into a legal agreement with your company to perform work on a construction project. The term, downstream collaborator, is used to represent the person, business or entity that a Procore company account holder is paying to perform contracted work.
Examples of downstream collaborators are:
- You are a main contractor who has created a subcontract in the Commitments tool with the downstream subcontractor who will be completing the electrical work on your construction project.
- You are an owner who has created a contract in the Commitments tool for a downstream main contractor who will be erecting structural steel on your construction project.
- You are a speciality contractor who has created a subcontract in the Commitments tool for a downstream carpenter to lay the floor and perform other floor work on your construction project.
