Contract Change Control System

Much like the management plans found in the Planning processes, the contract change control system describes the processes needed to make contract changes. Since the contract is a legal document, changes to it require the agreement of all parties. A formal process must be established to process and authorize (or deny) changes. (Authorization levels are defined in the organizational policies.)

The purpose of the contract change control system is to establish a formal process for submitting change requests. It documents how to submit changes, establishes the approval process, and outlines authority levels. It includes a tracking system to number the change requests and record their status. The procedures for dispute resolution are spelled out in the contract change control system as well.

The change control system, along with all the management plan outputs, becomes part of the Perform Integrated Change Control process that I'll discuss later in this chapter.
