is a 'BILL OF QUANTITIES'?
A BILL OF QUANTITIES is in effect a schedule of
rates used to evaluate changes to the CONTRACT PRICE.
speaking, a CHANGE to the quantities will not be considered
a CLAIM, however, changes to the quantities may invalidate
the RATE and so could result in a CLAIM for a change
to the unit rate to be applied.
is a 'CONTRACT'?
A CONTRACT is a predetermined arrangement between
the PARTIES setting out the precise details of the
reciprocal arrangement. It encompasess details of
the RIGHTS and OBLIGATIONS of each of the PARTIES
to the agreement.

is a 'CLAIM'?
It seems obvious, until you try to define it precisely.
So here is our definition, from a contractual point
is the excercise of a right or benefit from the other
contracting party that is not more explicitly set
out in a CONTRACT, and results from a change of circumstances
compared to that known when the contract was entered
an increased quantity would not be a (contractual)
claim, when the Contract provides for a change of
quantities, eg when there is a BILL OF QUANTITIES.
