Two leaders at the New York City Dept. of Transportation will discuss strides the agency has made in procurement reform to help it do business more quickly and efficiently. One is a new citywide procurement program launched recently called Passport, and another is an agency-specific program called Bridges CPMS, a cradle-to-grave system providing data to the bridges team for more effective project management. They will share Vision Zero, a program to save lives using speed cameras, and discuss the agency’s commitment to inclusiveness and equity with minority vendor programs—both federal (DBE) and city (MWBE).
This presentation eye-opener will explore the age of city’s inventory. For NYC DOT, rehabilitation and reconstruction turns into historic preservation whether on signature structures over the East River or smaller ones in Central Park. These leaders will highlight significant projects in the capital plan and mention the agency’s first design-build procurements, likely coming out at the end of the year.
