This article outlines the process for the determination of the impact of a contract scope change when the funding provided to support a multiyear government contract is held constant on an annual basis. A solution needed to be found, or both the contractor and client would be faced with almost constant effort to rebaseline the estimate and schedule. Under normal contract conditions, when a change is required, either funding is provided for the year required, or the subtask is modified and a contract modification with additional funding is provided. The Rocky Flats Closure Project baseline outlines the contractors' entire budget for the contract, statement of work. The work is segregated into many different work breakdown structure elements.
