How can I unaward a tender or contract in Portfolio Financials?

This information is intended for accounts with Portfolio Financials product in Procore. Please reach out to your Procore point of contact for more information. 


After you have awarded a tender, it is still possible to unaward the tender and the contract in Portfolio Financials. While doable, the process is not recommended and requires several conditions to be met before you can unaward. It is highly encouraged that you thoroughly review your tenders and contracts before awarding them.

In addition, it is highly recommended that you communicate with your vendor before unawarding the contract, as the unawarding process will revoke access and could result in some confusion for your vendor.

You CANNOT unaward a tender or contract if:

  • There are invoices or change orders on the contract.
  • The contract has been shared with your vendor.
  • Your organization's settings forTender the editing of contracts.
  • The tender, contract, invoices or change orders passed through an approval workflow.
    If any approvals were involved in this tender or contract, please consult with your Procore point of contact. You will not be able to unaward anything that has gone through an approval workflow without input from stakeholders at your organization who set the parameters for the approval workflows and the assistance of the Procore Customer Success team.
