[Context and motivation] In the delivery driven context of contract software production, efficient and effective requirements change management (RCM) remains a challenge for global software development (GSD). [Question/problem] New RCM models need to be devised for GSD settings, to reduce confusion and improve the efficiency of managing requirements change and the resulting impacts. [Princi-pal ideas/results] We present a model drawn from a case study which evaluated RCM practices in a GSD organization, with sites based in USA and Pakistan. [Contribution] We extend the observed practices by developing a theoretically informed process model to improve RCM efficiency and effectiveness by using a baseline requirements artifact and tool supported collaboration process.
