Remove a Variation from a Main Contract

Objective

To remove a Potential Variation (PV) or Variation Request (VR).

Background

Before you can remove a Main Contract Variation (MCV) from Procore (as described in Delete a Main Contract Variation), you must use the Steps below to remove any PVs or VRs linked to that MCV. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Admin' level permissions on the project's Main Contracts tool.

Prerequisites

  • Before changing the status of multiple MCVs from 'Approved' to another status, be aware that you must apply the status changes in reverse order from how they were approved. For example, if you approved the PPCOs in sequential order (001, 002 and 003), you will need to unapproved them in reverse order (003, 002, 001). 
  • If any variations have been added to your project's payment applications, you must delete those payment applications before you can use the steps below. 

Steps

Navigate to the Variations Tab

  1. Navigate to the project's Main Contracts tool.
  2. Locate the main contract to work with. Then click its Number link. 
  3. Click the Variations tab. Depending on the number of variation tiers configured for the tool, the following tables appears in the tab:
    • Main Contract Variations
    • Potential Variations
    • Variation Requests
