Complete a Head Contract with DocuSign®


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


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. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • To initiate the DocuSign® signature process, 'Admin' level permissions on the project's Prime Contracts tool. 
      To sign a Procore prime contract with DocuSign®, you do NOT require access permission to Procore's Prime Contracts tool. A PDF copy of the prime contract is available in DocuSign® for review.
