ARCHIVE: Change control and management, 1st edition, RICS guidance note

Published January 2021
Effective from 1 April 2021
Reissued March 2024

This practice information gives advice on how to handle changes proposed and made after a contract is agreed and covers the role of the person requiring the change, whether the employer’s agent, the project manager or the contract administrator. It also looks at the contrast between a change and a variation and the different circumstances that apply to each, with reference to relevant contract provisions. This practice information supports the RICS core competency of Contract practice.

This practice information does not detail issues such as organisational change that might be taking place at the same time as the project, which could affect change and its management. Neither does it address value management or value engineering – professionals are encouraged to refer to the relevant RICS document for such information.
