Statement of Task

The committee was asked to review and comment on the following issues:

  1. The adequacy of the current procedures to balance cost and schedule issues and the degree to which the multiplicity of projects and priorities embodied in the CA/T project are and can be successfully organized and implemented.

  2. Process refinements to the organization and management of the contract administration function, including the control of change orders, the contractor claims process, the execution of contract modifications, and the review of cost recovery issues.

  3. Recommended improvements to the reporting and controls processes, including determining whether the appropriate amount of information is being provided to project management for decision-making purposes.

  4. Adequacy of methods employed by the owner to oversee the management consultant.

  5. The appropriateness and effectiveness of the structure that is transitioning the CA/T project from construction to an operable transportation infrastructure system.
