What is the difference between potential change orders (PCOs) and change orders (COs)?

Potential Change Orders (PCOs)

  • PCOs are a means of gathering information to make a decision regarding changes that are being considered but have not yet been fully adopted by the stakeholders on the project.
  • PCOs are not considered part of the contractual agreement. Therefore, they do not update in the budget.
  • PCOs can be linked to a CO to facilitate quickly making the suggested changes official.
  • RFIs can be linked to a PCO to show the progression of events that lead up to the decision that was made.

Change Orders (COs)

  • COs are changes to the contractual agreement and will be reflected in the budget as soon as the approval process is started.
