  • Request for Equitable Adjustment (REA)

    Changes to a contract may require additional work and expense on behalf of a contractor. Change work, either directed by formal contract modification or through constructive change, entitles the contractor to seek an equitable adjustment. The contractor must prove that it is entitled to an equitable adjustment. The contract must contain language specifying the conditions under which an REA will be considered.
