43.103 Types of contract modifications.

Contract modifications are of the following types:

  1. (a) Bilateral.A bilateral modification (supplemental agreement) is a contract modification that is signed by the contractor and the contracting officer. Bilateral modifications are used to-

    1. (1) Make negotiated equitable adjustments resulting from the issuance of a change order;

    2. (2) Definitize letter contracts; and

    3. (3) Reflect other agreements of the parties modifying the terms of contracts.

  2. (b) Unilateral.A unilateral modification is a contract modification that is signed only by the contracting officer. Unilateral modifications are used, for example, to-

    1. (1) Make administrative changes;

    2. (2) Issue change orders;

    3. (3) Make changes authorized by clauses other than a changes clause (e.g.,Property clause, Options clause, or Suspension of Work clause); and

    4. (4) Issue termination notices.
