Congratulations! You and your lower-tier Trade Contractors have finished all of your work on the project site. Today, we will discuss the closeout process for a Trade Contractor working on a Wrap-Up program. Each project is different, and it’s important to always start by reviewing the requirements of the program and/or the Wrap-Up manual.

Here's what you will need for your Wrap-Up closeout

  • To report all your on-site payroll, through your end date
  • A current Certificate of Insurance on file, with correct endorsements
  • To enter your closeout details (typically through an online portal)

Once all documents have been submitted—and the Prime Contractor has confirmed you are complete—your Wrap-Up work is complete. 

Performing an audit of your submitted on-site payroll

After the above requirements have been met, the program’s Workers’ Compensation (WC) Carrier may contact you to perform an audit of your submitted on-site payroll. The Carrier’s Auditor will be looking for the following types of documents to complete their audit:

  • Monthly Wrap-Up Payroll Reports that you submitted to the Wrap-Up Administrator
  • Notice of Work Completion Form
  • Other submitted monthly Wrap-Up Payroll reports. These reports often include WC Payroll Reports, Certified Payroll Reports, or other payroll documentation that verifies your:
    • Class Code/Trade
    • Reportable Wages (based on the state your project is located), for on-site payroll only
  • Scope of work and the start/completion dates (N/A for Maintenance Wrap-Ups)
  • Total Contract Value (including change orders)

It’s important to remember that any work you perform under a Wrap-Up program will not count as exposure on your corporate insurance program(s); thus saving you premium insurance dollars.
