Say for instance, if I miss something in my design, if I forgot bollards in a parking lot, or say at the same time, say our estimation department did not put enough money in for that, you work with them to come up with a solution that still meets the design intent, but also can still meet the budget and it's essentially a zero change, zero worry in a lot of ways. It's less of a formality and more of a pat on the back, in a way.
