The use of these two words are saying the same thing. You have an extenuating and mitigating excuse as to why you had to do something in a particular way.

In procurement that could be due to an emergency event, health and safety risk, public safety risk perhaps even a force majeure type event (something outside of your control).

A compellingn and defendable reason why you had to do it the way you did.
