Based on analysis of the USACE-AGC Joint Study on Construction Contract Modifications published last year, USACE publishes its first-ever Contract Changes Playbook for firm fixed-price contracts to provide best practices and drive accountability for timely resolution of change orders.
In collaboration with AGC of America, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) published its first-ever Contract Changes Playbook for firm-fixed price contracts. While not mandatory on USACE projects, the purpose of this playbook is to provide best practices, help USACE and federal contractors align expectations, provide transparency into challenges and obstacles, and drive accountability for timely resolution of change orders. Importantly, it sheds light on the considerations and procedures of USACE’s change order processes. The Playbook was initiated based on the analysis of the USACE-AGC Joint Study on Construction Contract Modifications published last year.
The Contract Changes Playbook comes on the recently released Construction Partnering Playbook, with extensive AGC member input, that details how USACE should implement partnering. The command philosophy centers around the three C’s: Commitment, Communication, and Collaboration. The partnering playbook provides several examples and draft templates on a host of issues relevant to AGC members.
