ASA National Construction Best Practices Awards
ASA offers national recognition to prime contractors that are committed to superior business practices like prompt payment. ASA’s annual National Construction Best Practices Awards, developed by the Task Force on Ethics in the Construction Industry, recognize elite prime contractors that uphold best practices and refuse to do business according to the “lowest common denominator.” The deadline for prime contractors to submit applications is Nov. 15, 2013. Each prime-contractor applicant must supply three sealed business-practices recommendations from specialty trade contractors that have worked for it in the past year, along with a copy of its standard subcontract, with its application. ASA will announce the award recipients in January 2014. ASA will provide national recognition to the award recipients, including presentation of awards at the ASA Business Forum and Convention 2014 in New Orleans, La., March 6-8. The application fee is $495.
