    I was planning on only creating a pre-negotiation memorandum and a modification abstract to explain the modification action. Due to the low dollar amount I do not believe any other documents besides the modification document are required. Am I correct?


    Answer

    You can do this change in one of two ways, negotiate the requirement change and price it all in one modification or issue a modification to effect the requirement change and then issue a 2nd modification that is negotiated to effect the price change.  In either scenario you should document what you are doing in a memorandum for file to explain the action of the modification and to determine the price to be fair and reasonable.  You don't need a pre-negotiation memo, unless your command requires it. You just need to document what you actually agreed to and why.
