Soft Award a Tender

The content below describes functionality that is part of the new Bid Management Enhanced Experience. See About Bid Management Enhanced Experience.


To award a tender in Procore without converting it to a contract. 


When you select a bid to award, you have the option to convert it to a subcontract or purchase order. See Award a Bid and Convert it to a Subcontract or Purchase Order. If you do not use Procore's financial tools, or do not want to create a contract yet, you can "soft award" a bid by setting the status to 'Awarded'.
