Property and Construction Branch
This is in reference to contract Modifications.
Recently, documentation needed for Contract Modifications have been the subject of review and discussion. Therefore, this memorandum is being issued to provide guidance.
Please ensure that future Contract Modifications have documented reasons for why they are needed (see Attachment A - Not available electronically). Additionally, ensure that future Contract Modifications, that exceed the Independent Government Estimates, are properly justified (see Attachment B - Not available electronically). In an effort to assist you with this documentation, the attached documents have been developed and are being issued for your use. These documents should help to strengthen internal controls and help ensure that only necessary modifications are approved.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
