The S.C.O.R.E.D.™ system
is an on-demand network that provides ubiquitous and convenient
services to consumers by way of Cloud Computing technology. The network database
includes registered contractors eligible to work on an owner’s
construction project. This tool, implemented at the request of healthcare
systems, local, state and federal municipalities as well as educational
institutions, can be used by any construction project owner who wishes to
encourage the inclusion of diverse contractors when undertaking major
Prior to becoming a registered contractor in the data base, each contractor has
to meet a set of objective criteria that establishes their relevant experience
for a particular construction project. These criteria are established
by the project owner. Every contractor must complete the criteria application
electronically through the S.C.O.R.E.D.™ system. The system
can be accessed through Schooner's website. All information and data contained
in the application is held in strict confidence by Schooner Consulting.
Schooner Consulting's team of specialists are available by telephone and/or email
to answer questions and resolve issues that may arise during the application process.
Upon receipt, the criteria application is then reviewed, analyzed, approved or
rejected depending on whether the applicant has adequately met the criteria. Contractors
are not able to see any details of any other contractor application.
Once the review process is concluded, the name of the contractor is posted on
an Electronic Bulletin Board that lists all the registered contractors. This process
only registers a list of eligible contractors and promotes transparency in that
the contractor's certifications such as MBE, WBE, local residence and key specialties
are specified for each contractor on the Electronic Bulletin Board. The
Bulletin Board is available 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. All contractors
have the ability to review the Bulletin Board to ascertain whether or not their
application has been approved. This system facilitates great communication
among all contractors registered on the S.C.O.R.E.D.™ system.
