Cost Auditing Program

 

Remediation/cleanup costs have been out of control for many years with the prevailing attitude being that cost is of no concern when it comes to keeping the environment clean.  MR’s attitude is that proper cleanup and cost efficiency can coincide.  Professionals skilled in cleanup/remediation of pollution events run this business sector.  With this expertise, MR is able to provide meaningful pre-spill consultation, contract review, onsite auditing, and invoice review.  Our services are geared towards ensuring that the RP’s cost to remediate/cleanup a pollution event is fair and reasonable given the specifics of the incident.  We provide reports showing costs incurred on a daily basis as well as a qualitative and quantitative analysis of the equipment, personnel, and consumables being utilized.
