ELECTRI REPORT F3405 – CHANGE ORDER GUIDELINES FOR ELECTRICAL AND LOW VOLTAGE CONTRACTORS
Contractors are routinely asked to prepare change order proposals on construction projects. The single most common area of dispute in the change order process is its cost.
The main purpose of this project is to develop guidelines that provide a systematic, standardized, fair process for the pricing of change orders. This study identifies various costs categories and items, investigates overhead-profit practices, and identifies various impact factors and methods used to calculate associated consequential costs.
There is also a Change Order Guidelines: Quick Reference card available.
