AWP and WFP audits and assessments should be performed throughout the life of a project.
WFP assessments are based on the Construction Owners Association of Alberta (COAA) WorkFace Planning Scorecard, and can be conducted from project inception to project completion. Assessments determine the level of compliance to the standards established in the COAA WorkFace Planning Model.
The goal of an assessment is to determine whether an organization has the systems, people, policies, and procedures necessary to effectively implement detailed construction execution planning, including determining whether all constraints have been satisfied prior to releasing work to the construction crews.
Assessments can be provided to both the contractor and the owner if so required. In general, the contract identifies constructor obligations and an assessment is a way of objectively determining whether those obligations are being met.
A typical assessment of a contractor requires a minimum of 2 days site visit resulting in a report that will be generated with the aim of outlining the level of compliance and providing suggestions for improvement.
For optimal results we recommend assessments be repeated on a quarterly basis, depending on the size and length of the contract.
