Requests for contract modifications to grant contracts must be made (by one contracting party to the other) allowing an adequate time-limit for the addendum to be signed before the modifications are intended to enter into force. Please keep in mind that major modifications need formal Addendums to be processed which may take long periods. A copy of an addendum request is attached as supporting document 202 to this guide.
