Approve or Reject Commitment Variations (CVs)


To approve or reject a Commitment Variation (CV) as the designated reviewer. 


Commitment Variation (CV) details a potential change in costs that affects the original commitment contract. When a Procore user creates a CV, the user can assign another Procore user as the 'Designated Reviewer' for the CV. Only one (1) user can be assigned as the 'Designated Reviewer' on a commitment. In addition, before the reviewer can submit an Approve or Reject response, the CV must be placed into the Pending - In Review or Pending - Revised status.
