Abstract
Change orders represent a cost to the State and to tax payers that is real and often extremely large because contractors tend to charge very large amounts to any additional work that deviates from the work that was originally planned. Therefore, efforts must be made to reduce significantly the occurrence of change orders in order to provide significant cost savings to the state of Indiana and save taxpayer dollars. The proposed research, in this context, developed a set of guidelines that will allow the geotechnical office of the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) to minimize the probabilities of having change orders in those projects where they are tr...
