Issues and Agenda
- Capital investment that meets NY’s growing infrastructure needs for bridges, tunnels, energy, roads, transit, airports and water systems
- Jobs creation through mandate relief measures and pension cost reductions that will free up funds for public works projects and put thousands of New Yorkers back to work
- Extension of Qualifications-Based Selection (QBS) requirements to public authorities and public benefit corporations for higher quality design
- Implementation of alternative project delivery methods Design-build and Public Private Partnerships to accelerate infrastructure projects, decrease costs and leverage private equity
- Cost-effective delivery of engineering services through greater use of private design firms
- Indemnification that ensures engineers are responsible for only the work they perform
