provisional sum

Definition

An amount of money tentatively agreed upon between two parties contracting for work to be performed, in cases in which the full extent or nature of the work is not yet known. Determining a provisional sum allows work to proceed, with the expectation that the amount may be modified in the course of the work as more information about the scope of the work becomes available.
