The Integrity Monitor independently oversees physical construction, much like an inspector, as well as the associated project documentation in order to detect any wrongdoing by the various construction entities (contractors, subcontractors, construction managers, etc).
An Integrity Monitor addresses problems before they occur by utilizing any combination of interdisciplinary teams composed of auditors, legal professionals, investigators, engineers, project managers, and loss prevention specialists. An Integrity Monitoring Program can be employed by an entity on either a voluntary or compulsory basis.
The involvement of an integrity monitor at the beginning of a job goes a long way in preventing unethical behavior from ever developing. Contractors, subcontractors, suppliers and others will be motivated to stay within project and legal guidelines, contributing to the protection of an owner’s bottom line and reputation/brand.
