ORLANDO, Fla. (PRWEB) December 16, 2015
The National Insurance Restoration Council (NIRC) teams up with Global Risk Management Solutions (GRMS) to provide innovative contractor screening solutions. GRMS provides companies and organizations with compliance management for new and existing suppliers, contractors and service providers. The NIRC is a non-profit organization devoted to protecting and educating property owners and restoration contractors when dealing with insurance claims. The NIRC serves the common interest of insurance restoration contractors while also protecting consumers from unethical contractors. NIRC membership only certifies the best and most experienced certified and licensed contractors who practice ethics, superior workmanship and customer service.
“We have a stringent membership protocol at the NIRC. GRMS is a leader in contractor screening solutions, and this partnership will allow us to keep our standards consistently high when screening new members. We aim to change the industry and provide a solution for property owners, construction companies, and the industry,” says Joe Radcliff, founder and president of the National Insurance Restoration Council.
Vetted and certified NIRC contractors must adhere to a strict code of professional conduct, educate property owners about the insurance restoration process, and give back to communities in storm damaged areas. The NIRC and GRMS partnership offers ongoing compliance, initial screening program and rescreening on an on-going basis. Member information is consistently monitored and stored in a secure web portal.
“The National Insurance Restoration Council is a solid organization with a great reputation. It is increasingly important to screen qualified contractors to help reduce the risk in an inherently risky industry such as construction,” says Gerard Smith, president of Global Risk Management Solutions.
According to GRMS, today’s insurance restoration market contains a high level of risk. Hiring a contractor who is experiencing financial distress, does not have a valid contractor license or proper insurance coverage can be devastating to the job and to the general contractor.
According to the NIRC, the management of the licensing, compliance, credentials and stability of service providers and contractors, as well as staying current with the ever-changing U.S. federal compliance regulations, has become increasingly complex and costly.
GRMS is a renowned expert with federal laws like the U.S. Patriot Act, which includes the OFAC list that is the U.S. Government’s “do not do business with” list. GRMS conducts financial background screening, certification of insurance, W-9 management, compliance, owner background checks, Better Business Bureau screening, as well as bankruptcy, liens, and judgments screening.
