How It Works

HOW IT WORKS

Example Change Order Disagreement

  • A subcontractor issues a change order request for time and money because he believes the owner or general contractor has requested an additional scope of work.
  • The change order is rejected.
  • The project managers and owners have met multiple times, but cannot come to an agreement on whether the subcontractor is entitled to either time or money.
  • The issue has started to impact other areas of the project and other subcontractors.

The Parties Agree to Submit a Dispute Resolution Request Through Conifac

  • The Subcontractor submits a Dispute Resolution Request through Conifac’s system.
  • The Subcontractor enters the basic information regarding the dispute into Conifac’s system.
