This handbook provides a framework to make sure you address the risks for your projects. It includes the ABC’s of a successful construction project, coverage of construction basics, understanding the world of contractors, and when and how to audit the project.

Whether building a new office, improving real estate portfolios, or refurbishing and modernizing existing property, construction projects can present significant risks for an organization. Construction projects offer fertile ground for fraud and mismanagement. Auditors are best qualified and placed in the organization to help establish construction controls and appraise progress to mitigate project risks. Ongoing audits can provide senior executives with relevant and timely governance issues as they occur. 
Although this handbook is primarily geared toward ongoing, hands-on audit involvement during all project phases, its principles may be applied at any time. It will provide you with:
  • Testing, reporting, and staffing strategies.
  • Help in identifying different areas of risks and how to mitigate them.
  • Knowledge of which documents to ask for and when to ask for them.
  • Ways to determine hidden costs and avoid paying for work not bargained for.
