Research commissioned and presented by ELECTRI international will be on the agenda for the next meeting of the Construction Owners Association of America (COAA). The topic, Change Orders: Common Issues for Owners, GCs and Subcontractors will be presented during COAA's Convention at the end of October. The change order topic is being investigated for ELECTRI International by Michigan State faculty member, Professor of Construction Management, Matt Syal. The leaders of COAA recognized the value of starting a dialogue to examine Syal's findings and recommendations regarding change orders and invited him to present a session in San Diego.

During a recent conversation about this positive cooperative development, Professor Syal noted, "We are pleased that COAA leaders realize that there are several areas in change order pricing that need to be discussed among various parties involved in construction projects. We look forward to presenting our work to owners and to having an open discussion on those issues of common interest." The COAA agenda can be accessed at
