Action: Contractor documents reason/explanation for Change Order and Click "Next"

Options available to the Owner are:

When you Approve the Change Order – the new Line Item(s) will appear on your SOV and will be available for you to fund.
When you Request Changes the dialogue box is opened and notes can be sent directly to the Contractor. The Contractor is able to open the Change Order and make modifications and resubmit.
