Q Does Section 31-7-14, permit amendments to be made to existing energy performance contracts which have been entered into pursuant to that Section?

A Yes. The contract may be amended to include the additional scope of work when the proposed amendment contains subject matter that is within the original scope of the proposal, was contemplated in the original agreement, and enhances the objective of the original energy efficient contract. Note that such amendment must also be approved by the Energy Division of the Mississippi Development Authority. (Attorney General’s Opinions to Young, February 7, 2014)
