Training on Public Works Contract Administration

I taught a six hour course on May 12, 2010 on Public Works Contract Administration sponsored by the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) and the Municipal Research and Services Center (MRSC).  

About 45 public agency representatives attended the training in Bellevue, Washington.  This was the second day of this training program.  The first day focused on purchasing and professional services.

The topics I covered included the following:
  • Construction Contract Documents
  • Bid Receipt and Opening
  • Insurance, Bonds, and Retainage
  • Responsive Bids
  • Responsible Bidders
  • Change Orders
  • Public Works Contract Close-out: Claims Against Bonds and Retainage
The same class will be held again in the fall as follows:
  • September 22-23, 2010, Camas, Washington
  • October 13-14, 2010, Mount Vernon, Washington
For more information about the class and to register, visit WSDOT's website.  If you would like to discuss me providing training for your agency, please contact me.
