Responsibility of Ensuring Work Has Been Completed
The management company that our corporation uses issues the necessary work orders to contractors, makes the arrangement of work to be done through their vendor list and depending on the amount and scope of work will issue tenders for bid work which the board will chose one. If the management company arranges for contractors to do the work, are they also responsible for ensuring that the work is completed by that contractor before requesting the board to pay an invoice. The management company does not do any walkarounds with the board so it is the board or an owner who has to notify the management company of what is wrong. As an owner I am wondering who is responsible for ensuring work has been completed as described in the scope of work – is it the board or should be the company issuing the work orders?
