  • What is Spectrum Engineering Corporation's pricing structure?

    Given the application, Spectrum Engineering Corporation has the ability to tailor a pricing structure that works best for the client.  Contractual engagements including specified fee, fixed fee, phase fixed fee, time and expense, and cost plus to a maximum. 

  • How does Spectrum Engineering Corporation approve commencement of projects?

    Spectrum Engineering Corporation prefers to work commencement after a hard copy p.o. or contractual encumbrance is received.  This protects both parties and allows us to remain focused on assignments already under contract.  Both the client's control number and Spectrum Engineering Corporation's nine-digit job number will be used for billing purposes.

    Spectrum Engineering Corporation realizes that some projects must be started in advance of the contract in order to protect the project schedule.  The client may issue a signed ”letter of intent to award” in anticipation of the proper paperwork in order to expedite the project kickoff.  Approval by top management is performed on a case-by-case basis.

  • Who at Spectrum Engineering Corporation manages project budgets?

    Each project manager is responsible for their project's budget with review from the overall project manager, contract administrator, and upper management.  The contract administrator facilitates job cost reporting and works closely with the project managers.  The accounting system prompts the user when budgets are exceeded in a task, staff type, phase, or project basis.

  • How does Spectrum Engineering Corporation handle Change Orders?

    If there is a change in either the schedule, scope of work, or budget, a change order document should be generated to accurately describe any deviation from the original project baseline.  The actual form and workflow process is at the client's discretion.  Spectrum Engineering Corporation wants to help make the process as seamless as possible.

    Spectrum Engineering Corporation's accounting system has the ability to generate change orders on a project, each having their own contractual or billing arrangement.

  • Who at your firm reviews and approves submittals?

    Those involved with the design, review the submittals for their discipline.  Cost and pay submittals are ultimately reviewed and signed by a major stockholder.
