  2. 2. Why Due Diligence is a MUST • Subcontractor Default - March 2012, “The default and temporary shutdown just before New Year’s Day of ASI Ltd., a principal subcontractor on the $825-million Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., has delayed completion of the arena’s enclosure and forced extra effort by the project’s prime contractor, Hunt Construction Group, to keep on track for scheduled completion later this year.” • Federal Investigation Targets Chicago M/WBE Program – March 2012, “Attempting to crack down on a decades-old scam in which front companies perform subcontracts under minority/women-owned business enterprise, or M/WBE, contracting programs, the city of Chicago says it will spend $11 million for improved programs with better oversight. The push follows a federal probe into a company accused by prosecutors of operating as a “sham pass-through” subcontractor on some of the city’s biggest public works.” • Subcontractor fired for lacking workers’ comp insurance – October 2011, “Everything gets run through the general contractor, and from what we understand is that Brait Builders was never informed from their insurance carrier that Atlantic no longer had their insurance,” Billings said. • Subcontractor Accused of Insurance Fraud - September 2011, “Department of Insurance criminal investigators accuse Stone of submitting a fraudulent Certificate of Insurance to O.L. Thompson Construction Company in order to obtain employment as a subcontractor.”©2012 Assurance Screening, LLC
  3. 3. Subcontractor Screening & Continued Evaluations Assurance Screening specialize in due diligence screening, credentialing and the collection and verification of required or requested documents of the subcontractors and trade partners of our clients. • All screenings based on client’s Unique Screening Criteria (USC) - tailored to follow client risk management guidelines and parameters. USC’s are based on client subcontractor qualification parameters and document submission criteria. • Upon screening and verification of the subcontractor or vendor, any information that creates a positive hit, or does not meet the requirements of client USC receives a flag on the system, and if necessary, additional communication to the client.* • All aspects of the process handled by the Assurance Screening notification and collection system. • The process is web-based = No software installation required by client or subcontractor. Findings and documentation delivered via secure website and through weekly and monthly email reports. *This is pre-determined when final screening criteria are implemented.©2012 Assurance Screening, LLC
