Complete the following three parts:

Part 1 Select subcontractors

In this part you need to compare and evaluate subcontract quotations for formworker and concretor work and determine which should be used on the Strathfield Apartment project.

You are to assume that you are the Project Manager for the multi storey unit development and your program requires you to let the subcontract for Concrete And Formwork for the project urgently.

You elect to use a Dincel reinforced concrete wall system instead of basement block walls shown for its speed advantage.

You have received the attached four (4) quotations from the purchasing officer for the works. Analyse and compare these quotations by comparing them with your original tender budget for this work and decide which is the most cost and time effective so that a sub contract can be raised.

All the subcontractors have successfully done work for your company previously and are deemed equally proficient as each other to effectively carry out the specified works.

Liquidated damages on the project are $4,500 per day. Builder's site O/H costs are $2,000 per day. Assume all activities are programmed on the critical path.

Use the following tender budgets for your comparison.

A normal working day is deemed to be from = 7am to 3.20pm and includes 20 mins extra per day to accumulate a rostered day off once every 4 weeks. The work is expected to take 65 working days.

Part 2 Manage subcontractors

In this part you need to develop a range of documents and procedures for use managing subcontractors over the life of a building project similar to that detailed and used on the Strathfield Apartment project.

  1. Prepare a subcontractor pre award interview templatethat you can use when assessing and comparing the merits and suitability of lowest tenderers. Many companies include in their subcontracting procedure a requirement that the lowest 2 tenderers are interviewed. The template is to be used to record the interview and determine whether the subcontractor has allowed for all work needed. It should include adequate coverage of the following areas:
    • General contract, special conditions and pricing
    • Suitability (licencing, insurance, supervisors, number of workers, financial, other projects etc.)
    • Programming (working week length, start & finish dates etc.)
    • Insurance (kinds, currency and policy numbers etc.)
    • Code of Practice compliance
    • Safety
    • Quality assurance
    • Ancillary, incidental and contractual items, and builders work with the trade (i.e. crane, hoisting, storage, penetrations.)
    • Schedule of facilities/services/plant and whether supplied by builder or tenderer
    • Payment conditions
    • Authorised parties signatures
  2. Prepare a procedure (that is a brief written description of requirements) and a template for the selection of subcontractors not currently on the company booksMake sure you include the selection criteria to be used, how to gather information about previous work history, and requirements for qualification, licence and credit checks.
  3. Describe the communication process to be adopted and used by subcontractors on the sitee. printed or electronic, mail or web based, site meetings, etc. to facilitate document distribution, access, retention, verification and checking of communications
  4. Prepare a procedure (that is a brief written description of requirements) and templates for use in the performance management of subcontractors. You should consider and include in the procedure the following 2 (two) aspects:
  • How to deal with poor subcontractor performance. Outline steps you would take to conduct a performance interview with a subcontractor about unsatisfactory work quality, speed of work etc. Include key questions you would ask, activities you would include in any action plan, and details of the monitoring you would undertake to ensure that poor performance does not happen again. Explain which staff you would interview to investigate the poor performance. Provide a template for use to record a meeting about unsatisfactory performance under the contract and record agreed solutions.
  • How to evaluate and record and summarise overall subcontractor performance on completion of the work. The procedure can state who should evaluate performance i.e. job supervisors/site managers and the items to be considered. Also provide a template for use to record the evaluation. Areas you could consider in the overall performance evaluation include time, cost, quality, environmental, WHS, personnel, industrial relations and similar parameters. Include a place on the template to record a recommendation whether to reuse. Will the outcome be disclosed to subcontractors?
  1. Prepare an outline of items to be explained at the site induction of contractors on the project, including any commencement forms and paperwork that would need to be completed.
