Capital Project Delivery
Project Development Manual - Determine
if Owners manual clearly defines key roles and responsibilities
of project consultants, and adequately reflects industry standard
Construction Contract Analysis -
Identify all construction contracts being
utilized for capital improvements, and determine if documents provide
consistency and adequate controls.
General Conditions Review - Determine
if GCs adequately protect the Owner from unnecessary construction
costs and include clear requirements for cost support. We will review
GCs for adequacy in specific areas relating to change order
mark-ups, Owners right to audit, assessment of liquidated
damages, allowable and unallowable costs, equipment rental provisions
and insurance coverages.
Change Order Processes - Perform
sample testing of construction change orders to determine if appropriate
internal approvals are obtained and if change orders are supported
in accordance with contract document requirements.
Construction Consulting Fees - Assess
whether non-construction fees are reasonable and accurately reflect
services provided by outside consultants. Determine current percentages
being paid for these services within the Owners capital improvement
program. This will include an analysis of A/E fees and project/program
Construction Project Reporting -
Determine if timely reporting processes
are in place and whether they accurately reflect anticipated spending.
Report of Analysis - Provide
the Owner with a report of findings and recommendations to further
improve current policies and procedures.
