An amendment to the contract is intended for the written documentation of the amended terms. If you are well treated, treaty amendments can indeed help strengthen relations between the parties by providing clear and clear conditions for the settlement of the agreement. Any person or company with the legal authority to enter into a contract may later amend the contract to change the terms of the original contract. Unfortunately, situations and relationships can change over time. If the parties have never updated the original contract with an amendment to the contract to reflect the amended terms, and one party is not complying with its contractual obligations, the other party will likely fight hard in court to enforce the agreement. When the terms of a treaty change are defined, they should be defined in writing in a formal treaty amendment. Parties should have the opportunity to review the proposed amendments in written form prior to signing. If the only change you intend to make is to extend the term of the contract beyond its existing end date, see prototype model extension extension NEW 16/2014 Otherwise, the language of the next prototype can be used to start drafting a contract modification: AMENDMENT This modification is made to this contract [contract number] that was previously executed by and between [AGENCY NAME] as “[AGENCY] and TEXAS TECH UNIVERSITY HEALTH SCIENCE CENTER, [Office or school of `division` or department of `Contracting parties who sign and between them mutually agree to amend this earlier agreement as follows: [Clearly defined changes, complements or deletions using the following three introductory words :] Article 1, paragraph 1 is amended [effective day of the month] , year] and: in Article II, paragraph 2, [effective monthday, year], you add that Article V, paragraph 3 [effective monthday, year] is deleted. All other conditions that are not changed by this condition remain fully applicable and effective. [Insert here the corresponding signature blocks for TTUHSC and FOR AGENCE:] – In certain circumstances, a contract change may fully reflect the terms of the original contract; However, complete changes are relatively rare. Most treaty amendments change only certain conditions of an existing treaty, so that the other provisions remain in force. When a contract is amended by a change in the contract, the parties generally try to change one or more specific provisions of the contract, but are also satisfied with the terms they have previously negotiated.
