You will rarely find me advertising on this blog. However, since I have received numerous inquiries about my presentation at the AGC National Conference in Honolulu last month, I am pleased to announce that I will be doing a similar Webinar tomorrow, Wednesday, May 2, 2012 at 1:00pm EST.
You can learn best practices for documentation and record management in this 90-minute webinar — From Paper to Paperless: Controlling Construction Documentation, Improving Record Management and Identifying Risk in an Electronic Age. This interactive program will provide you with guidance to help you develop effective procedures for documenting your projects, including the transformation to the paperless project. You’ll get answers to your pressing questions about electronic evidence on a construction project, including the legal issues surrounding social media. This course will explore:
- Why are proper records so essential for claims and disputes?
- “Putting it in writing” rule – what should you record?
- What is the hearsay rule?
- Critical project documentation – what you absolutely need to document; and non-critical documentation – what you don’t need to document
- How to use project management software and Web-based capabilities to move towards a paperless project, establish good audit trail and consolidate project documentation
- Are electronic documents subject to the same discovery rules as paper documents?
- Is a written instruction via e-mail the same as a change order?
- How do social media platforms (Twitter, Facebook, MySpace) affect your project? Do you need a social media policy for your employees?
- AND MUCH, MUCH MORE!
