A claim is an unsolicited request for an additional payment or extension of time that is disputed by the other party, either because it has no basis in the contract or, because there is a difference in interpretation of the contract, or a disagreement about the facts supporting the claim. Claims contrast with variations that are a formal amendment to the terms and conditions or the scope of work which have been agreed by both parties. See also Variation.
