Adjudication Services (BiF)

Having a professionally prepared adjudication application or response vastly increases positive outcomes in the BiF adjudication process.

Our professionals will ensure that your documentation is comprehensive and accurate to give you the best result possible.

Respondents:

BiF adjudication time frames are short so be sure to contact us immediately for response services. The longer you wait the more risk you carry.

Payment System Audits


Audits;

Professional payment system audits allow you to reduce risk with payment collection and contract management and align your payment process to the BiF 's structure.

Payment Policies;

Effective payment policies reduce payment risk.

Contract Clauses;

Difficult or 'creative' contract clauses are one of the main reasons entitlement is not met under the BiF; have your contracts scrutinised for high risk clauses.

Terms & Conditions;

Terms and conditions define your payment terms and your clients obligations to you. Professional terms and conditions are an important legal consideration for any business.

Integrated Collection Service

Integrated collection is an ongoing service dedicated to keeping your back-end payment process in step with your contract and available legislation.

Our professionals will prepare payment claims or schedules, guide you in the art of identifying variation, extras and time delay and prepare the necessary notices protecting your entitlement.

This service is designed to prevent dispute and encourages positive business practices. We use your strengths, identify and rectify your weaknesses and place your business in the strongest possible position for collection under the BiF and other avenues.

Payment Dispute Advice


Do you have a payment dispute brewing?

Don't wait until it's too late, be positive and proactive.

We are here to advise you of your best options when you need answers on BiF issues and general business advice.

Our professionals will give you clear and practical advice that will help you avoid or prepare for dispute.

Time is an important factor in BiF dispute preparation. If you leave it too long, your risk and cost significantly increases!

Contract Management


Professional contract management demands respect from your employer when it comes to payment and dispute of any kind. With professional management risk is lowered and productivity is increased.

Employers LOVE proper contract management and seek out companies that are upfront and on the ball when it comes to delivering the job on time and on budget.

BiF Training & Implementation


Key staff on site and in the office must be aware of and react to critical payment issues as they happen to protect the company's ability to collect payment or dispute a claim using the BiF.

The BiF is your safeguard against payment dispute on both sides of the contract. We can make sure you are in the strongest position possible when it comes to payment.
