Treatment of High/Low Rate Items

For high/low rate items of firm B.Q. or lump sum SOR based on drawings and specifications, a fair rate would be proposed for valuing future variations to the extent that it shall be applied for omissions from or additions to the quantity of B.Q. items.

However, I have come across some projects of lump sum SOR based on drawings and specification that a fair rate shall only be applied for net additions only.

Why there are two different approaches in dealing with items of high/low rate.
