I think you are looking for this:
<select id="attribute_input_27" name="oa_attributes[27]">
<option value="" selected disabled>Select</option>
<option value="p1">p1</option>
<option value="p2">p2</option>
<option value="p3">p3</option>
</select>
<script>
    $(function(){
      // bind change event to select
      $('#attribute_input_27').bind('change', function () {
          var url = $(this).val(); // get selected value
          if (url) { // require a URL
             $('#someid').attr('href','contact/?attribute='+ url);
          }
          return false;
      });
    });
</script>
<a id="someid" href="#">click here</a>

Open in new window

Yes, you can just put below lines

 $(function(){

//for default value
var parameter=$("#attribute_input_27").value;
$("#someid").attr("href", "contact/?attribute="+parameter);

//onchange code has to go here

Find the selected element using:
$("#elementid option").index($("#elementid option:selected")))

Open in new window


And now add selected attribute:
$("#elementid").val("value").attr("selected","selected")

Open in new window
