Session Synopsis: Most accountants, especially internal auditors, know the importance of designing strong internal controls for their industries. They test them and make sure they work. Yet when it comes to spending millions and the enhanced risk arising from construction or other capital projects, too many organizations manage the financial risk with the same controls they use in their day-to-day business.

This training will help your organization avoid that pitfall by teaching you how to:
  • Implement sound controls for each of the three phases of construction: Preconstruction, Construction, and Project Closeout
  • The methods contractors use to earn gross margins of eight percent or more when the contract limits the fee to two and one-half percent.
  • Identify overcharges commonly found in each component of construction: labor, materials, subcontractor costs, construction equipment, insurance, and change orders
