Abstract : This research studies causes and effects of change orders on construction contracts at Naval Air Station, Corpus Christi, Texas. It involves a comprehensive study of 157 change orders on 61 fixed price construction contracts and a detailed analysis of sources of change and cost and schedule sensitivities for different project types. Of particular significance are the findings related to predominant sources of change which if verified by other studies should steer the U.S. Navy towards modifying its policies towards owner requested changes.
