SPR-4710: INDOT Project Change Orders – Root Causes and Recommendations

The research will analyze and document the trends and patterns of change orders associated INDOT projects over a 10-year period, for different project types and at different highway administrative districts. The study will also identify contract types and project types that are more likely to experience a given number of change orders and the total change order cost that can be expected of a given project. Then the research will analyze the impact of change orders on cost overruns and time delay. Finally, a set of recommendations or guidelines will be developed to help INDOT reduce the incidence of change orders.
