A compliance checklist is a form provided by the client in the RFP that purports to list all submission mandatories. The submisison instructions should clarify whether it is to be completed and submitted, or used merely as a convenience.
A contract amendment that adds to or deletes from the contracted scope of work. Can reflect many things, from the client’s lack of attention to specifying the Work completely in the first place, to new circumstances, to the contractor’s wiliness to bidding what appeared to be a complete solution but was not.
Primarily the legal agreement between the client and the contractor that specifies the terms and conditions under which the Work is to be delivered. In some industries, however, it refers to the body of Work executed by the contractor under the contract: what some other industries refer to as a project.
In some industries, “customer” is synonymous with “client”. In others, it refers to end users of the client’s products or services or to members of its organization.
The organization issuing the RFP, or, where an internal procurement agency is used (as in most government contracting), the end user of the Work.
