(Beta) Approve Prime Contracts

 In Beta
This content is for participants in the Project Financials: Modernized Experience for Prime Contracts beta program. 


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


After the prime contract is created, you can follow the steps in Update the Schedule of Values on a Prime Contract. Once the line items on the SOV are complete and the agreement between the project owner and your company is finalized, you can place the contract into the Approved status. This action allows your project team to begin creating change orders (see Create a Prime Contract Change Order) and owner invoices (see Create an Owner Invoice).
