Construction project owners have significantly more cost control responsibility under cost based construction project delivery systems. The opportunity for fraud, waste and abuse is significant and can occur in ways previously unimagined by construction project owners. This Webcast will focus on helping construction project owners understand the accounting/auditing problems and important owner-contractor contract terms related to the following:
  • Subcontractor bidding and selection
  • Subcontractor buy out
  • GC/CM self-performed trade work
  • Subcontractor change order control
  • GC/CM contingency account control
