An Audit Report on Contract Change Orders and Amendments at the Texas Facilities Commission

September 2022


The Texas Facilities Commission (Commission) had processes and related controls to help ensure that change orders and amendments were administered in accordance with applicable requirements. However, those processes and controls had some weaknesses, and the Commission did not always follow them for the two contracts audited:

  • A construction services contract for demolition of a state office building complex with 28 change orders and 3 associated amendments that increased the original contract value by $2,181,032.
  • An elevator maintenance services contract with 6 amendments as of May 2022 that increased the original contract value by $2,464,160.
