Architect’s Supplemental Instructions (ASI) are used to resolve minor issues in the construction documents so long as they do not affect contract time or money.

The actual verbiage is located in the A201 – General Conditions of the Contract for Construction.

Article 7.4 – Minor Changes to Work found in the AIA-A201 – General Conditions of the Contract for Construction

The actual form for the issuance of the Architect’s Supplemental Instructions is on the G710.
