Comments: The workshop was the deliverable

    A workshop was held at the AASHTO 2005 annual meeting in Nashville, Tennessee. It provided information concerning innovative contracting practices for transportation projects, focusing specifically on design-build delivery, best-value procurement, and construction warranties. It discussed recent trends in the industry, and provided state highway agency CEOs and managers with information needed to identify projects and implement innovative contracting methods to reduce construction time and life-cycle costs, improve quality, and enhance customer satisfaction. The contractor's final report has been sent to AASHTO for publication. In the meantime, it can be found here. The report summarizes the material developed and delivered at the workshop for state highway agency CEOs and senior managers responsible for highway construction contracting.
