MintBlog Talks Contracting of a Different Sort

One of the more interesting things I came across recently was Mint.com’s blog post on “Getting the Most Out of Your Contractor”. While it’s not a perfect analogy to government contracting, there are certain parallels, and it’s worth looking at. I’m a particular fan of the part on getting lots of competition. It really makes a difference in price. The post is outlined below. The link to the article is at the bottom of this post.

  • Get it in writing
  • Request changes
  • Address overruns
  • Pay in full after the work is done
  • Get multiple quotes
  • Get recommendations
  • Buy materials yourself
  • License and proof of insurance, please
  • Include clean up
  • Be professional
