A Prime Contract is a legal agreement between the party funding the construction project (Owner or Client) and the party ensuring completion of the work (General or Primary Contractor). In Pegasus, Prime Contracts are an optional tool for your projects you can add a single Prime Contract for each project created.
Workflow: Draft vs. Approve Status
Prime Contracts, once created in Pegasus begin in the Draft Status. While in Draft Status, Manager permission users can modify/edit and delete Prime Contracts as needed.
Once the necessary information has been added to the Prime Contract, users with the Manager permission can Approve the Prime Contract.
