IAP utilizes a no surprise model to handle your projects. You will know our fee upfront, allowing for proper budgeting.
Your project will be done your way. IAP ensures you still maintain a say in your project’s progress. For example, after we collect the bids on your behalf, you will have control over contractor selections.
IAP will carefully supervise and manage your project to keep you up to date on progress. We will equip you with full and detailed updates along the way using our Procore software, which you will have access to.
The team at IAP will oversee and provide full support while we work on completing your project. Our owner project representatives (OPR) will conduct site visits, communicate with stakeholders, and maintain detailed records for you.
IAP ensures that all projects are conducted according to state regulations and bidding requirements. We will solicit on your behalf utilizing state procurement websites, newspaper publications, and other platforms to increase our pool of quality contractors who can complete your project.
IAP & NCPA
IAP’s CIP program is contracted through NCPA. NCPA is a cooperative purchasing program serving education, local government, and nonprofit organizations nationwide. All contracts are competitively bid so there is no need to duplicate the bid process. All public entities can join NCPA for free and there is no obligation to purchase.
NCPA is a leading national government purchasing cooperative working to reduce the cost of goods and services by leveraging the purchasing power of public agencies in all 50 states.
