  What is a Change?

• The Contract is an agreement between two
• It forms the basis of the project scope, schedule
  and budget
• A change is a requirement that differs from the
     t t( j t            )
  contract (project scope)
          Every Contract Is Unique

• Changes are inevitable
  The O    h th i ht to      k h
• Th Owner has the right t make changes
• Consequently, projects must have a thorough and
  workable process to identify and manage changes …

               AS THEY OCCUR
  Five-Step Change Management

1. Identify the contract requirements (SOW)
          y     potential change and create a Potential
2. Identify the p             g
   Change Order (PCO) file
3. Determine the impact and price of the change
4. Negotiate and execute the change order
5. Maintain complete records of the executed change
  Step 1: Identify Contract Requirements
• Know the full Contract
   •   Contracts include all addenda, agreements, & special provisions
       (terms and conditions)
       (t       d     diti   )
   •   Specifications including general and supplemental
       provisions, technical specifications, and referenced standards
   •   Plans including drawings, boring logs, and other information
       depicting the work to be performed

• Read the contract as a whole
• Follow the order-of-precedence lause
  Sources of Changes

• Contract ambiguities, conflicts, errors &
• New requirements, program, or mission
• Unexpected / Unforeseen conditions
       suspensions, acceleration,
• Work suspensions acceleration or restrictions
• Regulatory changes
       Change Management Starts With The

• Changes Clause – the most important
   •    Allows owner to make changes necessary to complete work
   •    Obligates contractor to execute the requested changes
   •    Governs extensions of time and compensation

• Contractor Notice Clause – forces collaboration
   •                            pp       y        g ,       g ,
        Provides owner with an opportunity investigate, mitigate, and
        document the change
   •    Contractor’s failure to comply could result in forfeiture of rights
  Step 2: Identify Change and Create PCO
• Identify and classify the potential change
• Public contracts recognize common types of changes with
  provisions governing each one:
   •   Changes in the Character of Work
   •   Differing Site Conditions
   •   Suspensions of Work
   •   Extra W k
       E t Work
   •   Elimination of Work
    Purpose of the PCO
•   Document a potential change as early as possible
•   Create the PCO prior to determining if it’s really a change
•   A holding place for all relevant information related to a change
•   It can be regularly updated and sent to the parties involved
•   Allows anyone to initiate communication about a potential change
     •   Owner issues directed change “Stop Work Order”
     •   Contractor provides notice to owner of differing site condition
     •   Design consultant revises plans in response to RFI
   PCO Information
• Sub file 1: Contract information governing type of change
• Sub file 2: Description of what was encountered and caused the
  potential change
• Sub file 3: Analysis of the impact of the change – “net difference”
  b                    d h
  between contract and what was encountered   d
• Sub file 4: Schedule delay and mitigating alternatives
• Sub file 5: Estimated or documented actual costs
  Initiating the Change Order
• All project parties must be able to initiate changes
• Owner’s processes must be flexible enough to
  accommodate multiple points of origin
• Tracking of change information must be consistent
  regardless of origin
   •   It is critical for only one party to track all PCOs on a project
   •   Unique PCO identifier links individual PCOs to particular project
• Creation of PCO file starts paper / audit trail for change
  order process
  Requests for Information (RFIs)

• Not necessarily indicative of a change, but may
  lead to need for a change
• RFIs should be rigorously tracked, especially when
  they indicate a PCO
• In the event of a disagreement, contractor should
  start PCO process
  RFIs (cont’d)
  The t d d       f     h ld include, t   i i
• Th standard RFI form should i l d at a minimum:
   •   RFI number and date generated
   •   Issuer name
   •   The RFI question written clearly and concisely
   •     y
       Any reference documents
   •   Anticipated costs or delays
   •   Response due date
• RFIs should be tracked in a log that is regularly updated
  and transmitted to the responsible parties
      l     h ld be     i   d t          j t     ti to
• RFI logs should b reviewed at every project meeting t
  ensure process is being managed effectively

 Step 4: Negotiate & Execute Change Order

• Parties must adhere to time deadlines
              g     (owner)
      • Issuing RFP (     )
      • Calculating the time and cost of the work (contractor)
• Whether owner accepts or rejects, response should
  be in writing
• Owner can issue a Construction Change Directive
  to expedite process
      • Time and materials basis (“force account” for highway
      • Follows literal interpretation of change clause in
    Step 5: Maintain Complete Records of Changes
•    Should be the responsibility of ALL project participants –
     perform periodic audits to ensure approved process is used
•    Capture key business processes in standardized forms and
•    Maintain detailed records and track all document changes –
     records will be found if process is followed
     •   Contract documents log
     •            g
         Issues log
     •   RFI log
     •   PCO log
     •   Changes log
  Latency: The Hidden Project Killer
• Ability to quickly identify a potential change AND
  determine the time and cost impacts of the potential
  change is very powerful
• Effective project management needs a powerful
     d l i technology platform (P6 & C t t M
  underlying t h l       l tf                        )
                                     Contract Manager)
• Communication and collaboration are the critical
