The professional certification of contractors is becoming more important to corporate real estate organizations to manage the risks associated with maintaining commercial buildings.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 25, 2005
FM Solutions announced today that its WorkOasis™ facility management technology platform is fully compliant with the new commercial building regulations for Patriot Act certification.
The WorkOasis™ national network of certified suppliers which covers approximately 1100 cities in North America is a web-based contractor management service that provides fully electronic work order management. The WorkOasis™ centrally hosted program automates the service contracting process including the certification of suppliers, contractor selection, maintenance planning, work order management, work approval, performance measurement, invoicing, and payment: and is completely paperless and includes a detailed, Sarbanes Oxley compliant, electronic audit trail. Further, each service supplier within the WorkOasis™ national network represents and warrants that they are not in violation of Executive Order No. 13244 or the Patriot Act.
The September 11, 2001 terrorist attack on the United States has served as a catalyst of change for this Nation and demonstrates that the freedoms and strengths we enjoy as an open society also make us vulnerable. In response to this attack, the United States government passed the Patriot Act and the President signed Executive Order 13244. This Act and Executive Order provides Federal and Local governmental agencies with the tools necessary to proactively respond to potential future terrorist activities and attacks.
“Current and future commercial real estate owners and managers who utilize the WorkOasis™ network of certified suppliers experience a superior level of confidence in knowing that each supplier who is a member of the WorkOasis™ national contractor network represents and warrants that they are not in violation of Executive Order 132444 or the Patriot Act,” states Bob Dickhaus, President and CEO of FM Solutions. “The professional certification of contractors is becoming more important to corporate real estate organizations to manage the risks associated with maintaining commercial buildings.”
WorkOasis™ is a web-based contractor management application owned and operated by FM Solutions, LLC of Atlanta, GA. For more information, contact Bob Dickhaus (770) 618-0860 or visit http://www.workoasis.com.
