(Beta) Approve Main Contracts

 In Beta
This page details content that is only available to Procore Project Financials users who opt-in to the Beta version release of the Project Financials: Modernised Experience for Main Contracts release. 


To change the status of a main contract for a construction project to 'Approved.'


After the main contract is created, you can follow the steps in Update the Bill of Quantities on a Main Contract. Once the line items on the BOQ are complete and the agreement between the project owner and your company is finalised, you can place the contract into the Approved status. This action allows your project team to begin creating variations (see Create a Main Contract Variation), main contract payment applications (see Create an Owner Payment application) and payments issued (see Create a Payment Issued).
