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.

[Insert here the corresponding signature blocks for TTUHSC and FOR AGENCY:] ` Experience has shown that after a series of different contract changes, the resulting contract understanding can conflict between different people. Therefore, we recommend keeping the changes to a minimum. A contract is a written agreement between two parties, in which each is required to comply with its terms. However, there are unavoidable circumstances in which the treaty must be adapted to meet the needs of both parties. If all parties agree to the changes, there may not be a need to redefine a new contract from scratch. Instead, you can use a contract change. This document can be used as the parties prepare to revise the terms of an existing agreement. The amendment should then be presented and maintained with the original contract, so that anyone reviewing the contract would know that it has been amended and is therefore no longer representative of the treaty as a whole. This treaty change can be used to amend an existing contract. It is not a full-fledged contract.
It is understood and mutually agreed by and between the contracting parties to amend this earlier agreement as follows: [Amendments, clearly defined complements or deletions using the following three (3) introductory sentences:] Article 1, paragraph 1 is amended [effective day, year] and is written as follows: In Article II, paragraph 2, [effective monthday, year], add the following: Article V, paragraph 3 [effective day, year] is deleted here. All other conditions that are not changed by this condition remain fully applicable and effective.
