Highlights of the survey findings include:

  • Overall, respondents expect revenues to increase this year. A&E firms were the most optimistic (66%), followed by GCs (61%) and subcontractors (50%).
  • 90% of GCs are embracing technology and innovation to improve efficiency, compared to 61% of subcontractors and 75% of A&E firms.
  • While revenue/profitability was cited as the most important KPI for the vast majority of respondents, GCs review profitability forecasts far more frequently than subcontractors and A&E firms.
  • Nearly half of all respondents (49%) lack confidence that their internal controls are sufficient to prevent fraud in remote environments.
  • In assessing risks, financial and supply chain risks are obviously top-of-mind, but A&E firms are also concerned about labor shortages (42%).

The survey also uncovered the most common strategies that GCs, subcontractors and A&E firms are embracing to address supply chain issues, labor challenges, digital threats and more.
