The Nance Group, performs the procurement of the material, equipment, and service contracts for the purpose of successfully completing a project that the employer/prime contractor has either initiated itself or has been contracted to perform
Managing Contracts is a process that involves overseeing the lifecycle of one or more contracts for an employer/prime contractor
The contract management process involves:
The Nance Group managers/employees are responsible for enforcing the safety and cost provisions of a given contract..
The Nance Group ensures consistency in how they manages its contracts, which in turn mitigates the risk to the employer/prime contractor. Consistency is achieved by defining, to the greatest extent reasonably practicable, a uniform framework of expectation for both all subcontracted and all project management personnel. Creating a managed, uniform framework for communication between the employer/prime contractor and The Nance Group prevents projects with numerous subcontractors from becoming fragmented or inflexible. By eliminating these challenges, the communication framework reduces the likelihood that subcontractors will engage in non-compliant behavior.
The Nance Group implements Four Phases in managing its awarded contracts.
The pre-award phase: centers primarily upon identifying the needs of a project and locating individuals capable of delivering those needs
The award phase: involves qualifying and procuring the actual contract, along with establishing basic criteria for project work, such as safety standards
The post-award phase: centers around monitoring compliance by subcontractors and maintaining ongoing communication
The close-out phase: focuses on validating that all agreed-upon responsibilities have been adequately delivered by the hired subcontractor.
