Joint Scope Meeting
After entering your project, your local ezIQC® representative will quickly schedule a Joint Scope Meeting at the project site to help you and the Clark Contractors team agree on the details of the work that we will perform. The scoping process allows us to inspect the site and ask questions before submitting a Price Proposal. This upfront, open communication eliminates the misunderstandings and mistakes that lead to most change orders and often results in more cost-effective collaborative solutions. Our building expertise has often lead to “out of the box” remedies for complicated challenges, budget limitations or schedule constraints.
Detailed Scope of Work
The ezIQC® representative will then help you prepare a Detailed Scope of Work that describes the work that Clark Contractors will perform. The Detailed Scope of Work will be sent along with the Request for Proposal to Clark for pricing purposes.
Next, we prepare a Price Proposal by taking our detailed measurements and project specifications and selecting the appropriate tasks from the Construction Task Catalog® almost like ordering off of a menu. We simply multiply the unit price X the required quantities X the Clark Contractors, Inc.’s competitively bid Adjustment Factor. That’s it. No haggling. No extra charges. We also prepare a construction schedule and a list of proposed local subcontractors. Since we have already competitively bid the ezIQC® contract, we can begin working with little delay.
Price Proposal Review
Want another set of construction savvy eyes to review the Price Proposal to assure your auditors that your price is fair and fully auditable? It is a standard ezIQC® service for your ezIQC® representative to review the Price Proposal, make sure that we have selected the appropriate tasks and quantities and ask us to make any required changes all before they submit the Price Proposal to you for your final review. This is one of the best aspects of the ezIQC® process - providing reassurance and transparency to everyone involved- us, the agency, your board, your auditors and ultimately your constituents. Buying construction just got easier!.
If you are 100% satisfied with the Price Proposal, construction schedule, and proposed subcontractors, and decide to move forward, you can ask us to submit payment and performance bonds and certificates of insurance on your standard forms. For some projects, payment and performance bonds may not be required. If the bonds and insurance are acceptable, you simply issue a purchase order for Clark Contractors, Inc.to proceed. The construction is now ready to begin in a fraction of the time that you normally spend to procure a project.
Site inspections and construction management follow your standard process. When necessary changes arise, you have the flexibility to change the Detailed Scope of Work with ezIQC®. Extra work and changes are priced from the Construction Task Catalog for your specific area. There are no more negotiated change orders. Everything is prepriced. Clark Contractors prides itself on our reputation in all work and we are motivated to provide a high quality project because the opportunity for future ezIQC® work is tied to our current performance. We must perform because we recognize there is no guarantee that we will receive additional projects unless you are fully satisfied.
