In December 2015, Oceanit became a member of the Pacific Industrial Contractor Screening (PICS) consortium. The industry leader in contractor prequalification and auditing services, PICS is a global contractor management consortium committed to improving health, safety, and quality. Oceanit will use PICS to work with contractors and suppliers in the oil and gas industry. The consortium prequalifies contractors to operate at industry standards.
PICS’ prequalification and auditing services have become the standard in many industries, including energy, manufacturing, and oil and gas. Access to thousands of vendors’ prequalification information is housed online at www.PICSauditing.com.
“There is a growing number of companies seeking prequalified contractors to work in this very dynamic industry,” stated Dr. Patrick K. Sullivan, President and CEO of Oceanit. “The investment we have made to join PICS and participate in its rigorous process reinforces the commitment Oceanit has to enhancing the nation’s energy infrastructure.”
PICS streamlines the prequalification process by ensuring contractor compliance with health, safety, and environmental requirements for work in the gas and oil industry.
