What is Contractor Score?

Contractor Score helps measure the key aspects for a contractor's short-term financial and management capacity. Does the contractor have the money and manpower to mitigate problems on this job?

Contractor Score is not a guarantee or bond against a contractor's failure. It is designed to be an objective input to better assess risk or competition.

  • Manage subs on current projects with quarterly updates
  • Broaden contractor solicitation with more confidence
  • Differentiate yourself
  • Owners are requiring a Contractor Score for prequalification
  • A single number
  • Preserve complete confidentiality of financials

How It Works

  • Contractor Score analyzes the contractor's most recent fiscal year's financial statements, its most recent year-to-date financial statements, its outside lines of credit, its backlog, work-in-process. All the raw data come from audited, reviewed, or compiled financial statements, internal statements and data, and from the contractor's bank. Partial IRS tax returns may be used if financial statements are not available. These sources are used to help infer the numbers are genuine.
  • CS analysts develop the Contractor Score from the confidential information. All of the original confidential information is secured and accessed only for quality control purposes. The confidential information is destroyed thirty days after the score is processed.
  • The computed Contractor Score will be shared in confidence with the contractor via e-mail. A Contractor Score Certificate with the Effective Date (date of latest financial information submitted) will be sent to the contractor and they may share that with whomever they wish. Contractor Score is "Private" by default. We never share a score unless its Public.
  • Updates may be done as often as the contractor likes.
  • There is a $79 USD fee for processing each Contractor Score or update.
