Scope of Work Tutorial
Learn how to use the Scope of Work report to develop a project scope of work that can be used for soliciting contractor proposals.
The Scope of Work report creates a detailed scope of work that can be distributed to contractors for estimating and receiving contractor proposals.
The Scope of Work report lists the detailed work items and quantities that are included in your repair cost budget.
The Scope of Work report is a fully automated report, and automatically pulls over the work item descriptions and quantities from the Repair Cost Budgeter...so if you want to change anything on the scope of work report, it needs to be changed on the Repair Cost Budgeter.
The notes section on the right is where you can add additional notes about the work, such as work requirements, material specification and who is responsible for providing the material.
Owner Furnished vs Contractor Furnished Material
I generally use the notes column to list who is responsible for providing materials for each work item.
Generally speaking, I will provide all finish materials for the project, such as cabinets, tiling, paint, and fixtures.
The general contractor is responsible for furnishing and installing all rough materials, such as framing, drywall, & MEP rough in materials such as piping and wiring.
To designate who is responsible for providing what materials, I will specify an item as Owner-Furnished, Contractor-Installed or Contractor-Furnished, Contractor-Installed
Scope of Work Report - Word Document Template
The scope of work is a great report, because it is completely automated and automatically pulls all of your scope information from the Repair Cost Budgeter….but this report does have it’s limitations…
For our projects, we like to provide a detailed list of specifications & work requirements for each scope of work, which is difficult to do on the Scope of Work report.
So our business also uses a Word Document, that provides a more detailed list of repair items, work requirements & specifications.
Once you complete your Scope of Work document, you can solicit contractor proposals for your rehab project.
