U.S. Department of Transportation Investigating Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s Change Order Policy
Posted: 1-Apr-2005 3:32PM CST

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports that the U.S. Department of Transportation is investigating the use of change orders on highway projects in Kentucky. Change orders are used in the event that a contractor finds their expenses exceed the amount they originally bid for a project. Change orders are a necessary part of highway construction, but their use might also leave the state open to bid rigging and fraud.
