Manage Subcontracts in a Generation 3 Project Business System

Typical subcontracting processes lack the ability to manage a fluid scope of work. Subcontracting solutions today lack true integration between accounting and delivery operations, making managing multiple subcontracts not only time consuming, but risky as important issues can be overlooked.

Without a truly integrated project business system, it’s also difficult to keep track of required documentation like insurance details, certificates, waivers, etc. Subcontracting processes also tend to lack accessibility to real-time project data, leaving project managers in the dark about the status of their projects. Any changes to the schedule or budget should be known in real time.

In addition, subcontract management systems lack a tight change control and approval process. This means projects are often delivered late and over budget. When cost commitments and payments are not based on the currently approved schedule of values, there’s no accurate view of any financial implications on your projects.
