What is a cost overrun (Budget overrun)?

A cost overrun refers to a situation in which the expenditure of funds exceeds the estimated budget and necessitates finding new resources to cover additional money spendings. Cost overruns most commonly occur as a result of of underestimating the overall budget required for a project. Cost overruns are most common in technology, building, and infrastructure projects.
