The use of alternative contracting methods (ACMs) has accelerated the delivery of highway design and construction projects. These changes came about through efforts of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and state agencies over the last 30 years.
The TRB National Cooperative Highway Research Program's NCHRP Research Report 939: Guidebooks for Post-Award Contract Administration for Highway Projects Delivered Using Alternative Contracting Methods, Volume 3: Research Overview provides the necessary methods and tools to help state agencies better administer Design–Build (D-B) and construction manager–general contractor (CM-GC) contracts on highway construction projects.
This Research Report documents the rigorous process followed to produce these two Guidebooks.
