“You may have procurement requirements for the lowest compliant bidder receiving the award and you may be able to confirm their references, but the issue is not the quality of the contractor during the selection process. The problem may result from the pressure on the contractor from numerous other concurrent jobs during your installation, which causes a lack of skilled labor to provide the quality workmanship you expect,” said Concert Technologies President, Dennis Mazaris. The article titled “Third-Party Independent Verification” is available online in the current edition of BICSI News.
