HP forces ‘backcharge’ change orders on its subcontractors for out of sequence schedule mistakes made by HP. Subcontractors are forced to take the deductive change order or they hold subcontractor payments. | Deductive change orders are for HP to re-coup monies HP spent on their own mistakes. HP will also reduce a subcontractors monthly project billing as they see fit to show their ‘strength’ on the project. They care little about the quality of work.
