Contract Administration Support
Before and During Construction

  The staff of Construction Contract Specialists (CCSI) has a vast amount of experience reading and understanding the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR), Government specifications, ASTM's, et cetera. While employed by the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), private Contractors and working as a consultant to Federal Government Contractors, they have physically prepared or reviewed and approved literally hundreds of mandatory administrative plans and procedures. They maintain an electronic database of such plans that have been previously submitted and approved on various types of projects with the USACE, U. S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Coast Guard, NASA, Veterans Administration and others. This database permits them to site adapt, prepare and assemble such administrative plans and procedures that are both project specific and produced at the lowest possible costs to their clients. This service is not only economical but is praised by the various Government procurement offices and allows the Contractor to concentrate their efforts on getting the project bought out, submittal packages assembled and the personnel and plant mobilized on the project site. The projects get off on a correct footing when it is possible to submit all mandatory administrative plans at or in advance of the pre-construction conference.
