HNTB awarded capital project oversight contract with FTA

Posted on November 29, 2019

HNTB Corp. received a contract from the Federal Transit Administration to provide project management oversight (PMO) services in support of major transit capital projects nationwide.

As PMO contractor, HNTB will support FTA’s technical and management role in assessing the ability of transit project sponsors to successfully implement FTA’s capital programs.

  • PMO contractors provide recommendations and insights to assist FTA in determining if those projects are being managed effectively, progressing on time and within budget, and are in accordance with the project sponsors’ approved plans and specifications.
  • PMO contractors also assist FTA in monitoring project sponsors’ risk management, assessing readiness to advance projects to new phases and providing technical assistance to ensure project success.

“PMO ensures that federal funds deliver a maximum return when invested in public transportation projects,” said Diana Mendes, AICP, president of HNTB’s Mid-Atlantic Division.
