The Construction Audit & Cost Control Institute Shares Ten Things to Consider When Contracting with MEP's on a GMP Basis
Date:3/30/2013

Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) March 30, 2013

The Construction Audit and Cost Control Institute (CAACCI) is recommending construction project owners take preventive measures to protect themselves from overcharges related to billable "costs" proposed by Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) subcontractors. Using a lump sum contract is a typical approach to contracting with mechanical, electrical or plumbing (MEP) subcontractors. But it may not always be the best way.

Potential savings is one of the main advantages. However, these potential savings can disappear quickly depending on the contractual deal that is made with the MEP subcontractor. If your contract is not specific, you may end up paying much more to the GMP subcontractor than their true costs plus the agreed upon FEE.

Owners and their Construction Managers should consider the following ten point list of potential “hidden profit” problem areas before agreeing to the billable “costs” proposed by any GMP subcontractor:

1. Proposed FEE percentages for overhead and profit may exceed competitive FEE ranges for similar size jobs with similar commercial risks. For example, a proposed FEE of 21% would be considered excessive if the normal competitive FEE range for similar GMP MEP contracts would be 10% or less.

2. Proposed “Fixed Labor Rates” may be higher than actual wages plus actual labor burden by 10% to 50%.

3. Proposed “Fixed Labor Burden Cost Factors” may be higher than actual labor burden costs by 10% to 100%.

4. Proposed standard “discounted book” prices for commodity materials such as pipe, conduit, fittings, etc. may be 200% to 300% of actual commodity ma
