Grants and Contracts Details

Description

Transportation agencies are facing dynamic local, state and national revenue streams. The expected fluctuation in available funding will impact both project development and delivery. Many transportation agencies will be faced with streamlining these operations and will create new business models to address current practices and innovations in construction management. Construction workforce (project administration, engineering, and inspection) loading challenges appear to be inevitable. These will involve the assignment/location of in-house staff as well as determining future staffing levels. Construction staffing is a chief component of project delivery cost, and a strategy to staff the construction function is essential in establishing future programs and to effectively determine total project costs. No standardized approach is available to adequately determine resource levels for construction staffing.
