Contractors Background
 
 
A contractor is an entity that establishes a relationship with another organization or individual. In essence, a contractor is a third party that is hired to aid in the development of a specific construction project or a business venture.
 
 
 
Contractors offer large and scattered projects with streamlined schedules, necessary resources, and developed safety protocols to deliver a sound and efficient completion of a venture. Contractors must deliver their intended responsibilities in accordance with the specific agreed upon contract.
 
 
Contracting
 
 
Contracting is a business maneuver that is accomplished when an individual, a corporation, or an entity includes a third-party agency into the production of a product or the construction of a structure. When hiring a contractor, the hiring corporation must draw up a contract that outlines the specific wants of the company for the intended role of the contractor. The contract is the legal document that upholds and guarantees the relationship and the delivery of the product or service.
 
 
Contract Hire
 
 
When participating in a contract hire, an entity, individual, or corporation will hire a third party agency to oversee a particular function. In essence, a contract hire guarantees the inclusion of a third party into a specific venture. The third party is responsible for organizing the project and supplying necessary resources and safety materials for the project. In essence, the contract hire shifts responsibility, and in many ways, the legal liability, from the original owner to the general contractor.
 
 
General Contractor
 
 
A general contractor is a third party that is included in the construction of a structure. Typically, the construction of a public good calls for the inclusion of multiple companies and multiple specialists. As a result, the carrying out of such a project is filled with costs, varied roles, and confusion.
 
To help streamline the construction process, a general contractor will be hired to develop an organized work schedule. In addition, a general contractor will supply the various workers with a safety protocol and any necessary resources or goods to aid in the construction process.
 
 
Independent Contractor Agreement
 
 
An independent contractor agreement is the legal contract that fortifies the inclusion of a third party into a construction project or business venture. The independent contractor agreement affirms many of the specifics associated with the project and the intended wants of the hiring agency. The budget of the project, the specifics associated with the intended wants of the hiring agency, and the time frame are all specifics outlined in the independent contractor agreement.
 
 
Contractors Insurance
 
 
When a contractor is hired they essentially take over a construction project or business venture. In a construction site, the numerous roles of the companies are usually dangerous or surrounded by some risk of personal injury. As a result of the contractor's responsibility of overseeing the project, they are responsible for any mishaps that negligently occur on the site.
 
 
The contractor is responsible for installing a safety protocol and equipping the employees with suitable equipment. To avoid a lawsuit or protect against hefty fines, the contractor will purchase insurance which will cover them against construction damages or personal injury lawsuits.
 
 
Military Contractors
 
 
A military contractor is a third party agency that is hired by a government to aid in the development of a military or police enforcement department. Military contractors are privately funded and run. They are crucial agencies because they have vast resources and capital to help military or police enforcement units that are stationed overseas. Military contractors aid in training units or offering security measures to those stationed in hostile units.
 
 
Government Contracts
 
 
Government contracts are agreements between a government agency and a corporation that offers or produces a public good to society. Government contracts can offer incentives, but in general, they are necessary agreements because the products associated with the contracts are public goods, meaning they are offered with public funding. 
 
 
Nevada State Contractor’s Board

In order to be licensed and thus legal to become a contractor, a business or individual must fulfill the application requirements instituted by the Nevada State Contractor’s Board. The application process includes an in-depth review of the individual's personal history, competence, and intended role as a contractor.
 
 
Civil Contracts
 
 
Civil contracts are third-party agreements that institute the inclusion of a contractor in the construction project of a public service or good. The Civil Contract is the official document that outlines the agreements of the specified project. The costs, specific roles of the contractor and their employees, and intricacies associated with the project itself are outlined in the contract. If the contract is not upheld by the contractor the work will be compensated for, but the contractor will be relieved of their duties.
 
 
Contractor Agreement
 
 
A contractor agreement fortifies the inclusion of an independent contractor into a construction project or business venture. A contractor agreement is a binding legal contract that institutes the intended policy of the third party.

Service Contract
 
 
A service contract is a form of insurance that is offered when a consumer purchases an asset such as a major appliance or automobile. The service contract is held separately from a warranty. A service contract is sold separately from the product itself after the purchase of the good and it covers a particular aspect of the good beyond the warranty. The service contract provides insurance against hefty repair fees that are required for maintenance issues. In contrast, the warranty is fixed into the price of the asset.
