Here’s is some suggested words that you could adapt to your circumstances/requirements.

[b]Add new Z Clauses in Contract Data Part 1[/b]

Insert the additional text below in Contract Data Part 1 as appropriate

[b]If Option A, C or E is used[/b]

[b]Clarifications to Defined Cost[/b]

•           The following items/costs are expressly excluded from Defined Cost and including in the fee percentage: [insert clarification]

I have done a full Schedule of Cost Components (as per the Engineering & Construction Contract) but modified it for the TSC. Contact me direct if you want to discuss.
