Business Consultation Services 

Services

Progeny provides business consultation services. By understanding the key details (e.g., “nuts & bolts”) from the bottom up, Progeny will greatly aid our clients in the evaluation and validation services that we provide. We will analyze RFQ/RFP (Request for Quotation/Request for Proposal) documents, drawings, addendums, amendments, etc. to determine the scope of work and then review all client produced documentation for compliance, accuracy and competitive bidding. We will work closely with project managers, construction managers, engineers, architects, owners, contractors and subcontractors as applicable on their understanding of the scope-of-work, potential change orders and cost adjustments prior to proposal submittal.
