1.4.2 Changes in Service/Scope of Works

Setting aside the potential limits established by the procurement regulations in a number of countries, changes in scope of works (changing the design prescriptions) and changes in service requirements are always a risk event to be allocated clearly to the public partner.

This is one of the areas of risk where it is clear that the contract should not just state what the risk allocation is, but should also contain clear and transparent provisions governing how the process will be handled in the case of a change occurring, including how the price or cost will be defined and how compensation will be granted.

Chapters 7 and 8 explains this matter further.
