Small Business Program
Being a general or prime contractor is a big responsibility. Not only do you have to meet customer demands, you also have to ensure your subcontractors are delivering to expectation. Managing both sides requires a high degree of organization, contracts management and relationship management.
Our team at Intuitive Edge® can help set you up for success by establishing workable contracts management foundations that close gaps with customers and create more efficiency for your business. We combine hands-on consulting teams with a modern easy to use technical solution that sets you up for success.
Problem: The contract with my customer requires me to be liable to them for anything that goes wrong with a project. They are holding me solely responsible, but my subcontractors are actually the ones performing the services.
Solution: Minimize your risk to ensure that you are not wholly responsible for the liabilities arising from your subcontractor's actions. Do this by using standard contract language for your subcontractors that cover their liability obligations toward you. Close your gaps and properly flow down the areas related to security requirements, indemnification, limitations of liability and dispute resolution just to name a few. Having standards with your subcontractors will also allow you to better negotiate high risk areas with your customers.
Flowing down customer requirements is not a "cut and paste" job.
Problem: I am growing and bringing on more and more subcontractors. I need a better system to track their contracts and supporting documents in order to stay compliant with customer and industry requirements. These include insurance certificates, professional licenses and disadvantaged business certifications just to name a few.
Solution: Establish an online vendor registration tool that will allow your subcontractors to input and update their information, contracts, amendments and documents. For example, if something goes wrong on a project and you need to prove a valid insurance certificate from your subcontractor, you will have easy quick access.
Losing track of your subcontractors' information creates risk for you.
Reduce your risk and increase your efficiency now. Then grow with less risk and more profits.
