The beauty of this tool is in its simplicity! You don't need to type or re-type any clauses into spreadsheets or Word documents, and you don't need to use the FAR paperback or other hard-copy guidelines to cross-reference each clause for applicability. Our tool does all the analysis instantly - no need to type any clause numbers!
Note: Our tool only extracts the following 3 parameters from your document: Clause number, Alt, and Date -- all other information is discarded!
Since all subcontractor flow down clauses originate directly from the prime contract, you will never have to worry about flowing down too many clauses or flowing down clauses that don't exist under your prime contract.
Once your clauses are extracted you will instantly see how your clauses are organized, which ones are outdated, and which ones are recommended for flowing down to subcontracts.
In addition, you can profile clauses for risk and departmental interest.
Note: Wen you mouse over any chart, you will see the count of clauses by category; when you click on each pie or bar, a list of applicable clauses will be displayed.
You can compare up to 4 different sets of clauses side-by-side to see if there are any differences.
In the Analyze section, you will have the option to chose from varios reports, giving you the flexibility to print your clauses in full text, in full text with prescriptions, or in summaries, etc.
You can also annotate your clauses with “global” notes (e.g. based on your corporate policy or guidance) that are visible across your projects or “contract-specific” notes that are applicable to each Contract/RFP. You can quickly copy the “global” notes to your “contract-specific notes”.
Separately, as a subscribed user you will gain the ability to generate flow down clauses that are specifically tailored to your subcontractors. On the oposite, if you are the subcontractor, you can use this feature to check whether the clauses given to you by the prime contractor are applicable to your own work.
