The sudden halt in the economy caused by COVID-19 will create a much steeper decline of economic output than the 2008 recession. The subcontracting community and insurance providers supporting performance security protection (Subcontractor Default Insurance and Surety Bonds) might be exposed to significant losses caused by COVID-19. It will be imperative for construction managers and general contractors to closely monitor subcontractor financial stability, liquidity and ongoing performance. Subcontractors will need to provide evidence of sufficient liquidity to push through this period of uncertainty. When this current COVID-19 crisis subsides, projects that have been delayed or suspended will begin to restart. We will walk you through a sample prequalification process including a 90-day liquidity review that is necessary to provide a satisfactory response to these concerns. We will discuss the importance of making timely decisions and required action steps to avoid the risk that this current situation presents to unfunded schedule impacts and project delays.

How well do you know your contracts? Contractors often focus on work scope believing that other provisions are difficult to negotiate or are fixed. However, all contracts are subject to some negotiation. Even those that are fixed still require attention, especially those that govern the timing of payment, change order requests, additional work directives, monthly releases, claims, delays, and conditions precedent to termination. This session will help to update contractors on the state of relevant contract terms in the industry and how to get paid, when to lien a job or make a bond claim, and how to make sure your billing complies with the contract requirements.
