Session 1: Change Order Management
Effective change order management can dramatically reduce a subcontractor’s risk and increase profitability. This interactive course explores the change order process from a subcontractor’s view point and provides participants with hands on training in recognizing, scoping, pricing, and negotiating change orders.

Session 2: The Life Cycle of Estimating – Bid With More Data Less Gut
With the technology available to the industry, it is entirely possible to price work utilizing data in lieu of estimating software with the “hope” that it contains the right information to help land the job AND not lose profit. During this session, we will discuss the life cycle of estimating and the critical path of information that must be shared through the get work, do work, and keep score functions to allow for this critical information to be gathered, extracted, and utilized.

Thomas Osborne is a former American football player, coach, college athletics administrator, and politician from Nebraska. He served as head football coach of the Nebraska Cornhuskers from 1973 to 1997. After being inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1999, Osborne was elected to Congress in 2000 from Nebraska's third district as a Republican. He served three terms (2001–2007), returned to the University of Nebraska as athletic director in 2007, and retired in 2013.

Osborne played college football as a quarterback and wide receiver at Hastings College, and soon after finishing his brief NFL career he was hired by Nebraska head coach Bob Devaney as an assistant. Osborne was named Devaney's successor in 1973, and over the next 25 years established himself as one of the best coaches in college football history with his trademark I-form offense and revolutionary strength, conditioning, and nutrition programs.[1] He retired with a career record of 255–49–3 (.836), 13 conference titles, and three national championships. He coached 53 All-Americans, including 1983 Heisman Trophy winner Mike Rozier. Osborne's 1995 national championship team is considered by many to be the best in college football history.

Contractor Prequalification

Speaker: William McCaffrey, Vice President, Environmental Health and Safety for the Irex Contracting Group

Third party contractor prequalification is a trend that is not going away.  More and more customers are using services such as ISNetworld to prequalify their contractors.  A failing grade can cost your company the opportunity to even bid work.  In this session, learn how to navigate the ISNetworld system including common metrics, grading systems, tips and tricks to pull your grade up, and the latest tools and reporting hiring clients may use.  This session will also cover the importance of prequalifying any subcontractors that MICA membership may use.
