administration software is designed to automate the assimilation
of bids and the preparation of sub-contracts.
The program automatically creates
budgets by plan and phase as well as numerous management reports
including construction budgets by plan and phase, graphs of bids
received, analysis of cost per square foot, and variance analysis
comparing contracts awarded to budget.
Contract Advisor uses a sequence sheet created by the user to
list each lot and block in a phase with the plan and elevation for that
unit. A construction budget by plan is then created by the system
showing the entire cost break down for each plan and elevation.
In addition, a phase budget is created,
based upon the product mix listed in the sequence sheet.
schedule is also created for each trade, listing each home, the
plan and elevation, the contract price, and the stages for payment.
This pay schedule is then used by the vendor to prepare billing
invoices, and is used by the builder to audit for double payments, and
correct prices and pay stages.
fax pricing exhibits to each vendor, without manual
intervention, based upon information in the master vendor files.
