To delete a client contract from the project's Client Contracts tool. 


You can delete a client contract from Procore when it is NOT in the 'Approved' status and when it has NOT been the subject of a variation. As a safeguard to protect client contracts from permanently being removed from Procore, only users granted the 'Required User Permissions' can delete a contract. 

  • Deleting a client contract permanently removes it from Procore. This includes its Bill of Quantities (BOQ) and all line items. 
  • If the contract links to other Procore items created or stored in other tools (such as a purchase order, subcontract, document and so on) the links are also removed. 
  • A deleted client contract cannot be retrieved, restored or recovered by you or by Procore. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Admin' level permissions on the project's Client Contracts tool.
    • 'Read Only' or 'Standard' level permissions on the project's Client Contracts tool with the 'Delete Client Contract' granular permission enabled on your permission template.
  • Limitations:
    Main contracts cannot be deleted when:
    • The client contract is in the 'Approved' status. 
    • The client contract has one or more Client Contract Variations (CCVs). You must always delete variations before you can delete a client contract. See Delete a Client Contract Variation.
    • A MC payment application has been created for the client contract. See Create a MC/Client Payment application.
      Is there any way I to delete a client contract after creating a variation?  Yes. If you really need to delete a client contract, you can change it from 'Approved' to another status. You will also need to delete all of its associated variations. See Delete a Client Contract Variation.
