The Construction Contract Administration Knowledge Community (CCA) has been established to help our members better understand the issues, actions and resultant impact of the decisions required in this often neglected part of Project Delivery. It is our goal to provide clear answers to issues of concern to the Institute’s membership and share case studies and best practices. We further hope to provide guidance and direction in developing guidelines for new and evolving approaches to Project Delivery as well as guidance in the continuing education of our emerging young professionals.

If you are providing contractual services, for example processing closeout submittals, I don't think it should be additional services, as these tasks are included in your contract, and you should have made provisions for having sufficient funds to cover this effort. Perhaps you ought to include a limitation of time AFTER substantial completion during which the contractor must complete its closeout tasks. Maybe 90 days?
