Subcontract Management/Award Process
I have now worked with two companies in New England that do not use the commitment contract feature other than to enter the values for tracking purposes. This feature currently does not have the ability to customize forms enough to match the contracts required so it requires double data entry. Most contract have an contract as well as several exhibits tat need to be reviewed and signed.
Additionally an approval letter process added so that the owner and sign off on commitment awards within the system allowing contracts to be issued.
There should also be a letter of intent feature that allows Subcontractors to start working on a project while the owner reviews their contract packages.
Lastly there should be some type of Bid Tab/Leveling feature for comparing sub contractor quotes, this is not necessarily a Preconstruction item as typically the final award of a contract requires this comparison and approval prior to being issued.
Thanks for the feedback! Our team will review your suggestion and I will update this ticket if we proceed.
