Who Should Supply Electrical Door Hardware?

Maybe this question has already been asked but I will through it out there anyway.

Who would you rather supply electrical door hardware on a large new building (i.e. 300+ Doors): The general contractor? or the integrator? Why?

What do you do when you get a service call and find out its the door lock that is the problem (assuming hardware is provided by others)?
