Hill International wins FTA contract

Posted on August 28, 2009

Hill International, a construction risk management firm, received a contract from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) to provide project management oversight (PMO) services on major transit capital projects nationwide. The five-year contract has an estimated value of approximately $14.3 million.

 

The FTA is responsible for the administration of grants and loans to assist state and local public agencies in financing acquisition, construction, reconstruction and improvements of transit facilities nationwide. PMO contractors monitor all major FTA projects, serving to supplement the FTA's technical staff to evaluate grantee project management and technical capacity and capability to successfully implement major transit projects. They also monitor the projects to determine whether they are progressing on time, within budget and in accordance with approved grantee plans and specifications.

 

Hill has been providing PMO services to the FTA continuously for nearly 25 years. The firm’s most recent contract included oversight of federally-funded transit projects in Washington, D.C., Pennsylvania, Delaware, Florida, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Tennessee, Nevada, Puerto Rico and Utah.

 

Hill International, with 2,300 employees in 80 offices worldwide, provides program management, project management, construction management, and construction claims and consulting services.
