Complete a Prime Contract with DocuSign®


To complete the signature process for a prime contract with the DocuSign© integration.


A Prime Contract is a legal agreement between contracted parties. In a single, two-party prime contract, the Owner financing the construction project is called the client or principal. The party being paid to ensure completion of work is called the general, primary or main contractor. In Procore, you can either create a single prime contract for a construction project or you can also divide the scope of work for a single project between multiple prime contracts. 

If you have a DocuSign© account, you can connect your Procore prime contract to DocuSign© tool to manage the signature process. This lets you and your prime contract's signatories receive, review and return contract signatures online—at any time and from any Internet-enabled device.
