Managing subcontractors brings its own set of challenges to all contract and facilities managers. Whether subcontractors fail to finish their work on time, or they leave you with an incident on site to sort, it means your neck is on the line when something goes wrong.
To see whether you are following the best practice procedures to manage subcontractors correctly, leading supply chain compliance partners, Altius, have created a free subcontractor questionnaire for you to complete.
Managing your subcontractors: The Self-Assessment Guide is a 10-minute questionnaire that asks you questions on key subcontractor managements areas, including:
- Current procurement procedures and assessing subcontractor capability
- Policies, regulations and contracts
- Organising and planning subcontractor work
- Monitoring and reviewing
Following the questionnaire, you will be in a position to understand what areas of your current procedures need work, and how you fair against the best practices associated with managing subcontractors according to compliance and health and safety procedures.
Gaining better awareness
Speaking on the publication of the self-assessment, Altius COO and Chief Technical Director Len Simmons, said:
“No matter how many subcontractors managers are responsible for, we’ve noticed that the problems are exactly the same. Unreliable subcontractors bring delays to projects and create a stressful experience for everyone involved.”
“This self-assessment will give those responsible for managing subcontractors, a better awareness of where they could improve their internal procedures to better assess, manage and monitor subcontractors with 10 minutes.”
