NJ Transit awarded Hill International (HIL), a manager of construction risk, a contract to provide construction management services on a task order basis.
The three-year contract has an estimated value to HIL of $3.5 million.
Task order contracts also allow retention of specialized expertise that is rarely cost-effective to maintain in-house. Additionally, the availability of task order contracts affords the opportunity to use consultants already pre-qualified for specific work efforts, thus minimizing the time and cost needed to initiate and complete work. Contracting with a limited number of consultants also provides a greater measure of control over the work being performed.
HIL is one of six firms that were awarded task order contracts for construction management services under this procurement.
