Three simple ways of meeting your contractor management obligations without spending too much time and effort.
Contractor management is applicable to most businesses. A good contractor management system not only helps improve planning and communication but makes projects more efficient, saving time and money. The reality is however very different, and most businesses do not have effective and efficient systems for managing their contractors.
Here are our three simple ways of meeting your contractor management obligations without spending too much time and effort.
  1. Place your contractors into three specific categories. Click here to view our contractor category guide. Categorising your contractors will reduce the number of contractors you will need to prequalify and approve.
  2. Ask contractors or potential contractors who require approved contractor status for supporting information so you can prequalify them. To ensure the integrity of managing the risks posed by contractors it is important to not only request the right information but also to verify the information provided.
  3. Store the contractor information, send approval notifications, and set new review periods.
In summary, to have a fit for purpose contractor management system, follow our three simple steps. Request the right information and verify this information. Know also when you need to ask for further information. Have a centralised administration system which stores contractor information and prompts you when contractor reviews are due. This will ensure your shared contractor management requirements under current New Zealand legislation is met.
Here at Bedrock Solutions, we have developed a complete contractor management solution that is centralised and reduces the administration time significantly. Click here to book a free 30-minute consultation to review your contractor management system.
