Resource Highlight: MCAA’s Purchasing for Profit

May 19, 2023

Mechanical contractors looking to eliminate or reduce risk may want to adopt more strict and formal policies regarding the issuance of purchase orders. MCAA’s Purchasing for Profit is designed to help you establish purchasing techniques that help protect your business and purchases. It’s just one of MCAA’s educational resources that are free to MCAA members as a benefit of membership.

The bulletin reviews the items commonly included on purchase orders and offers tips to help you avoid any pitfalls along the way. It includes samples of:

  • A purchase order
  • General conditions and instructions
  • A startup and training demonstration to the customer subcontract
  • Language regarding manufacturers representatives and commissioning of systems
  • A certificate of insurance for subcontracts
