Delete a Head Contract


To delete a head contract from your Procore project. 


Typically, most project users will only want to delete a head contract from a Procore project before it is placed into the 'Approved' status and before your project team starts creating Head Contract Variations (HCVs).

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Admin' level permissions on the project's Head Contracts tool.
    • 'Read Only' or 'Standard' level permissions on the project's Head Contracts tool with the 'Delete Head Contract' granular permission enabled on your permission template.
  • Additional Information:
    • You cannot delete a contract in the  'Approved' status. 
    • You cannot delete a contract if your team has created any variations.



  1. Navigate to the project's Head Contracts tool.
  2. Locate the contract to delete. Then click its Number link. 
  3. Click Delete.

    If the Delete button is grayed out and unavailable, hover your mouse cursor over the button's tooltip to discover the reason why. Typically, the delete button is unavailable only when one or more of the following reasons is true:

    • The head contract is in the 'Approved' status. 
    • The head contract has one or more Head Contract Variations (HCVs). You must always delete HCVs before you can delete a head contract. See Delete a Head Contract Variation.
  4. Click OK in the confirmation window.
