Christine will be a panelist on "Risk Assessment and Management" on Tuesday, January 14th. The panel will discuss 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 will also walk 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 will be a panelist on "Bridging Plans and Projects: How Planning and Environmental Linkages Eliminates Duplication in Environmental Reviews" on Tuesday, January 14th. The panel will explore 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.
