Washington, DC

Christine Ryan and David Miller spoke at the 2020 Transportation Research Board Annual Meeting January 12-16, 2020 in Washington D.C. The meeting covered all transportation modes, with more than 5,000 presentations in nearly 800 sessions and workshops, addressing topics of interest to policy makers, administrators, practitioners, researchers and representatives of government, industry and academic institutions.

Christine spoke on "Risk Assessment and Management" on January 14th. The panel discussed the life cycle of risk assessment and management for public works projects, starting with the identification and allocation of risks, contractual considerations to embody the owner’s desired risk sharing, how a risk profile affects funding, price estimates and contingencies, and finally, enforcement of risk sharing provisions. It also walked through the process of developing a risk matrix, how that risk profile factors into the project’s delivery method, contract drafting considerations and project administration.

David was a panelist for "Bridging Plans and Projects: How Planning and Environmental Linkages Eliminates Duplication in Environmental Reviews" on January 14th. The panel explored the various authorities for Planning and Environmental Linkages, how they work, what is the state of practice in this area and what might be in the future for this concept as the Federal Highway Administration implements its One Federal Decision policy.
