Is it starting to feel like you (or other team members) are spending more time on contractor compliance than on the necessary tasks that come with your role? Our contractor compliance solution was made for this.
Manually tracking and monitoring compliance requirements in-house can be a considerable burden for any organization. Whether it’s been evident to you for a while that you need to look for other options, or if you’re beginning your search, there are a variety of contractor compliance solutions to choose from. In this blog, we’re sharing how we built our services at PlusOne Solutions to meet the needs of your organization and how they are specifically designed to increase efficiency and make you more compliant.
Contractor compliance is the part of contractor management that ensures your contractor or vendor network is operating both within the terms of their contract and according to the requirements of your organization. Well-managed contractor compliance reduces:
Putting the right system in place can help you by identifying well-qualified contractors and disqualifying individuals who are not. Your compliance strategy may include:
Background screening: Conducting background checks on your contractors allows your organization to select an extended workforce that meets your standards and reduces the risk of theft and violence. It also reduces the risk of exposing your customers to potentially dangerous individuals while the contractors conduct services on your organization’s behalf.
Continuous Criminal Monitoring: While a background check will look back into the contractor’s history, continuous monitoring allows for active and timely updates on select crime or incarceration events that involve individuals you contract with. Continuous monitoring results are effective from the date the individual is entered into the program and forward from that date on.
COI Management: Certificate of insurance management helps to reduce your organization’s exposure to uninsured or underinsured contractors. It reduces rejected insurance-related claims, ultimately saving your organization money.
License Monitoring: Ensuring that your contractors have trade-specific licenses usually means that they’ve completed a minimum number of hours of work as an apprentice and that they passed standardized tests to be qualified to perform a specific type of work that you have contracted them to do. This will ensure a higher quality of work performed for your customers, as well as a better customer experience since the work is completed the right way from the start.
