just some information as why organizing is the right thing to do...While the majority of information is HUD/government related...Think about SG demanding you buy insurance from THEIR "approved" providers, MFS...they own it...etc...

HUD 3.6: The Sad State of Affairs in Federal Contracting

So, to date, no current Company will notify those in the field that they have lost Contracts with HUD. The below are compliments of a friend of ours. Here’s the real deal: many of you out there are working up your last checks. What is going to make you violently ill is the fact that the New Kids on the Block have negotiated Billion Dollar Contracts; however, if you’re going to work for them you are going to take a 50% pay cut at minimum!

Ladies and Gentlemen, what is happening today is no different than Standard Oil! This is classic Anti Trust action calculated to break the back of the small business owners! I promise you this: If you continue down the path that both HUD and these monopolists want you on you will be soon foreclosing your own home! Anyone whom can justify these unholy profits being made upon the broken backs of the men and women in this Industry has neither honor nor soul. I ask this: when is enough money enough? I asked this very question of Les Sternberg, Director of Vendor Management of PK Management and never did get a response. Well, if I was receiving nearly FOUR BILLION DOLLARS and only paying out $325 for a job I would remain silent as well.

As you look over these Awards — and make no mistake these are YOUR tax dollars funding it — ask yourself if you would be better off taking the pennies being thrown or organizing? Make no mistake that there are only so many Craigslist crackheads they can work until they get audited and HUD is forced to put the Contract back up for Bid. If you answered in the affirmative to organizing, give us some input! Even if you don’t want to join us, take the time to organize!

Face it big likes big.

My company provides asbestos, lead, mold, indoor air quality, and such consulting services, and I started the company 21 years ago. One of my original designs was to provide sub-consulting services to medium and large consulting companies, as we can provide top quality at less than the cost of their overhead. I left one of the multi-nationals to start my company, and roughly 33% of our revenue has been sub-consulting work. However, it sounds as if the pay for sub-contracting on what you guys do is bad. Still, the big companies have big overhead, so you may want to target doing the work for less than their overhead, and target providing top quality (if anyone cares), while their overhead would force them to hire beginners or trainees.

RFPs from DOD and other federal agencies are are generally written so that only large national or multi-national companies could bid, as they include everything from architectural services, to what we do in one RFP, instead of separate smaller RFPs. This is one reason they at broke and going way deeper in the hole every second.

You-all can not be afraid to turn-in competitors who are violating various laws and regulations. How many of them are compliant with the asbestos and lead regulations from OSHA and EPA?

Not one person in my area does RRP compliant work. Most of them don't even know what it stands for as they are unlicensed "handymen" directly off of Craigslist. And mold remediation, don't get me started because everyone says its "discoloration", so just bleach and Kilz it. I have been told that because I am not a hygenist of licensed mold inspector, I can't even call it mold because I'm not qualified to even know that it is mold!

the problem with most contractors is that unless you have been involved directly with mold remediation work. i.e. proper methods you have no business touching it.. bleach is not a proper way.. and killz definitely isn't either..

And that's why I bid to have professionals come in. Shortly after I get "the client is requesting a bid to bleach and Kilz".

The stupidty is astounding. Does HUD, FNMA, Freddie and the EPA not all fall under the same umbrella that we refer to as the federal government? If the EPA is mandating RRP and fining the contractors, why not start enforcement with their sister agency called HUD???

Everyone is WAAAAAAAAAY off base here...
This has nothing to do with OSHA regs or mold at this time...
While the actions of PK MGMT actions on the HUD contract are the main topic that has caused the ripple abross the entire country...
THIS IS FOR PROPERTY PRESERVATION CONTRACTORS. Regardless of whom the client is.
You are speaking of a specific LICENSED trade...one that requires permits and certifications.
This is for preservation contractors to organize and form one voice to better our position.

If you can make any project work that will average 24 man hours for $310.00, pay for your labor, fuel, licensing, insurance, materials and all associated fees please share that information with everyopne as we are dieing to know how you have streamlined your operations and would like to adopt your business model.

The information is above...I will have a copy of the Bi-Laws and provide them(they are for the NPPG)...
If you'd klike more information or have questions concerning the Guild please email me and I will do my best to answer everything...
If you are a preservation service provider find out whgo the other companies are in your respective areas and talk to them,, start work toogether and quit allowing the nationals and sebbers to dictate to you by playing you off the other companies...

Thank you

Not off base: If the low-ballers are violating laws and regulations, you have a way to get them. If not they will keep winning. Portions of OSHA and EPA asbestos & lead regulations DO apply to various preservation tasks, and to employers with employees performing those tasks.
