To edit a project's client contract


You can edit a client contract at any time before you place it into the 'Approved' status.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Admin' level permissions on the project's Client Contracts tool.
  • Additional Information:
    • Some fields cannot be edited when items are in the 'Approved' status. For example, you cannot edit a Bill of Quantities (BOQ) on a MC/Client payment application or Client Contract Variation (CCV) when it is in the  'Approved' status.



  1. Edit a Client Contract
  2. Add, Delete and Rearrange BOQ Line Items

Edit a Client Contract

  1. Navigate to the project's Client Contracts tool.
  2. Locate the client contract to work with. Then, click its Number link. 
  3. Click Edit
  4. In the General tab, under General Information, modify the following information as needed:
    Notes: There are no required fields when creating a new contract. If you click Create without completing any data entry, the system saves the client contract with your name listed as the creator and places it in the Draft status by default.
    • Sign with DocuSign©
      If you are using the Procore + DocuSign© integration (see DocuSign©), a tick appears by default. Clear the tick from the box if the client contract does NOT require a DocuSign© signature. 
    • client contract #
      Accept the default client contract number, enter a new number for the client contract or create a custom numbering scheme to use.
      • If you plan to create multiple client contracts, Procore increments this number for you by default. For example; 1, 2, 3 and so on. 
      • To use a custom numbering scheme, you can enter a set of alphanumeric characters (for example, F-1 or F-01 or F-001) and Procore increments the number on new client contracts.
    • Title
      Enter a descriptive name for the client contract.
    • Owner/Client
      Select the project owner/client from the drop-down list.
    • Architect/Engineer
      Select the lead architect for the project from the drop-down list.
    • Contractor
      Enter the company name of the contractor managing the construction project. If you are setting up the client contract, this will typically be your company's name. 
    • Status
      Select the current status for the client contract. Options include Draft, Out for Tender, Out for Signature, Approved, Complete or Terminated.
      To create variations and payment applications, a client contract's status must be set to Approved or Complete.
    • Executed
      Place a mark in this tickbox if the client contract has been fully executed.
    • Make this Visible Only to Administrators and the Following Users
      Place a mark in this check box to limit visibility to users with 'Admin' permission and any users designated in the 'Allow These Users to See BOQ Items' checkbox.
    • Allow These Users to See BOQ Items
      Place a mark in this tickbox. Then select the names of any users who have been granted 'Standard' or 'Read Only' permissions on the client contract tool from the 'Select a Person' drop-down list.
    • Default Retention. Specify a default percentage that will automatically be applied to all line item costs for retention purposes.  For example, enter: 10%
    • Description
      Enter a descriptive summary to provide more detail about the client contract.
    • Attachments
      Attach any relevant files to the client contract. For example, an electronic copy of the signed client contract.
