Change Control

Throughout any project, changes are required to deal with unanticipated incidents and/or new information that arise during the course of the project lifecycle. This change control process is meant to put in place a strict process to ensure changes are tracked and approved appropriately throughout the project. In cases where changes are identified, a change request will be processed as follows:

  • The Project Manager at Agency will create a Change of Scope Order that documents the relevant information, including: change description, rationale (e.g. potential benefit), impact assessment, effort, and associated cost (if applicable) to implement the change.
  • This Change of Scope Order will be submitted to Client and reviewed for final approval.
  • For approved change requests, the Project Manager at Agency will incorporate the change(s) into the project schedule (if applicable) and communicate the change to the appropriate team members.
  • If it is anticipated that the Project will exceed estimated costs by more than 10%, then a revised estimate will be submitted for Client approval.

Expenses

Any expenses accrued through the duration of the project shall be fully reimbursed to Agency with NET 30 terms.

All expenses over $1,000 shall be pre-approved by Client.

Terms

The term of this Agreement shall remain in effect and be binding upon the parties commencing upon signature and concluding when all aspects of the project are complete. Agency and Client have the right to mutually amend this contract and scope of work at any time.

The obligation to indemnify Agency hereunder shall not be deemed terminated upon cancellation.
