Permissions

The grantor (or the principal specified with the AS option) must have either the permission itself with GRANT OPTION, or a higher permission that implies the permission being granted. Requires ALTER permission on the schema to which the procedure belongs, or CONTROL permission on the procedure. For more information, see GRANT Object Permissions (Transact-SQL).
