E2: Increasing Quality Standards for US Department of Transportation, Alternate Delivery Projects - J. Jeffrey Seiders, Jr. – (All)

The US Transportation Industry is going through an ambitious evolution of how projects are procured and delivered in the United States today. With demands of our aging Infrastructure continuing to mount, the need to deliver projects more timely with reduced public funding has led many states to utilize Alternate Delivery Methods. In my presentation, I will show when responsibilities are shifted from the Public Owner (State, Toll Authority, etc.) to the Contractor (Design, Build) and sometimes to the Concessionaire (Finance, Design, Build, Maintain, Operate), how this changes the quality roles project participants’ play and the increased sophistication of quality systems and standards that these projects require.
