Dealing with contracts, suppliers and delivery of work can be a time consuming process. At TRS Staffing Solutions we offer a statement of work (SOW) management service that aims to eliminate risk and maximize returns by contractually defining the project scope, objectives, timelines and deliverables.
Your statement of work is designed to give you visibility and consistency with all your projects, outlying milestones, timelines, pricing and the specific roles and duties of your engineering specialists. By including this information within a statement of work (SOW), it holds the supplier accountable for execution and delivery of this work.
Each statement of work will have its own categories, there is not a one size fits all management solution. TRS aims to work with you to create an individual statement of work. The following areas are typically addressed within your businesses statement of work:
- Purpose - Why are we doing this project? Setting a purpose aids the answer to this statement
- Scope of Work - Outlines work to be done and technology/software that will be used within the project
- Location of Work - Where staff and equipment will be located on project commencement
- Period of Performance - Specifies the allowable time for projects, start and finish times and numbers of hours that can be billed per week or month
