Why would a contract amendment be used instead of entering into a new contract?

When a contract is amended through the use of a contract amendment, the parties are generally seeking to modify one or more specific provisions of the agreement but are otherwise happy with the terms they previously negotiated.

A contract amendment provides a cost-effective way to change specific areas of an existing contract without disturbing other provisions that are presumably working well.
