Two-day course covering proven construction audit strategies and techniques to enhance your organization's ability to effectively control construction costs. Attendees will learn how to effectively establish audit coverage to achieve "risk based" cost avoidance and cost recovery results.
In poorly controlled construction environments, fraud, waste and abuse contribute to even greater losses. By exploring overcharges, how they occur and how they may be identified and recovered, attendees learn the knowledge and skills needed to address this challenge. This practical, experience-based seminar provides attendees with the ability to look beyond their traditional role by providing them with insight on how to help their organization bring construction projects in on-time, within budget, at the desired quality and at a fair price.

The creative use of construction auditing can yield dramatic results elsewhere. Courtenay Thompson has written a helpful article that shows that lessons from construction auditing can be applied to other contracts. Overcharges may be modest or monstrous. 1% to 2% is common on well-controlled projects. If corruption is included, overcharges can reach 30% to 60% or more.
