Term: Amendment

An amendment is a formal change to one of two documents:

  • The RFP articles (e.g. draft contract, response instructions, statement of work) during the response period.  See “addendum.”  At the sole discretion of the client, but sometimes provoked by bidder questions and suggestions.
  • The contract for the Work, after its award (e.g. to broaden/narrow the scope of work, to extend the contract term).  Must be negotiated with the contractor.
