Cost data is not always what it seems. Today’s information technology environment, with complex and inter-related information, as well as multistep allocations of overhead, labor and equipment can lead to costs being billed to a project that are inaccurate or inconsistent with the contract agreement. Further, lack of appropriate cost, quality, or payment control processes can lead to overpayments. And conscious schemes to over-bill a project, embezzle funds from a company, or provide unnecessary payments to suppliers, subcontractors, or employees can result in significant economic losses. Progress Claims’ broad knowledge of the construction industry combined with the auditing and investigatory experience of Progress Claims’ staff in revealing waste, fraud, and abuse situations give Progress Claims unparalleled abilities to prevent, detect, quantify, and resolve these matters.
