Additional Information

Collaborative Delivery and Federal Projects - The Time is Now!

The Construction Community of Interest is pleased to present an interactive program examining collaborative delivery as applied to federal construction projects. During this session, participants will learn the benefits and advantages of the Collaborative Delivery Methodology (CDM) and the CCOI partnering goals with government. Members of design build teams, contracting professionals, designers and contractors are encouraged to attend and learn about the CCOI’s progress to date and how to engage/participate with the CCOI to continuously improve collaborative delivery methods across Federal government agencies. This session will examine two topics related to collaborative delivery:

  • Panel 1: Sharing Risk in Construction – Better Ways to Contract
  • Panel 2: Collaborative Delivery – Industry & Government Perspectives and a Way Ahead

Panel 1: Sharing Risk in Construction – Better Ways to Contract
This panel will include a representative from the operations side of USACE, the contracting side of NAVFAC, a large business that uses risk sharing with private owners, and a small business 8(a) that employs contracting techniques where risk is developed collaboratively in the early stages of a project. The panel will briefly share their thoughts on the challenges and roadblocks to delivering construction projects and a different approach to risk (sharing  risk rather than shifting risk to the other party). Audience participation and brainstorming will be highly encouraged through the use of polls and an extended Q&A segment.

Moderator: Brig. Gen. Glenn Goddard, USA (Ret.), Parsons
Brian Hutchinson, Chief of Contracting, USACE Tulsa District
Tim Hess, Vice President, Federal Programs, Kiewit Infrastructure Co.
Kelvin King, Owner, Osprey Management

Panel 2: Collaborative Delivery – Industry & Government Perspectives and a Way Ahead
This panel will be comprised of the members from both government and industry and will focus on specific collaborative delivery methods used by the federal government to include ECI and IDaC. Each panel member will present their perspective on Collaborative/Alternative Delivery Methods used in the federal government and their thoughts on the way ahead. Following opening statements, there will be a moderated discussion between the audience and panelists.

Installations of the Future

“George Jetson Meet Nuts and Bolts”. It is fun to imagine future installations with unmanned aerial vehicles, unmanned submarines, and robots automated by computer systems. But in preparing for future installations, it’s more important to get down to the nuts and bolts of what is needed. Flexible piers to respond to various water levels over the decades? Dozens of remotely scattered UAV airfields to spread out the fleet and enable the UAVs to respond? Appropriately designed cyber control centers? This interactive, collaborative, head-scratcher session will explore what systems, facilities, and processes that are different from today are required to be developed for future installations/federal campuses. 

Moderator: Col. Paula Loomis, F.SAME, F.AIA, USAF (Ret.), Urban Collaborative

Col. Patrick Hogeboom, P.E., USA (Ret.), Michael Baker International

Joint Engineering Challenges & Solutions

What do we mean when we ask what are the “Challenges and Solutions” to any endeavor? In the Joint Engineer Contingency Operations space, a “challenge” or “solution” is defined by the risk perception and tolerance from any particular stakeholder. For instance, the COCOM risk is focused on the ability to meet the mission need or desired capability. The Service Engineer/Logistics staff’s risk may be focused on the ability to meet specifications and schedule either using military units (e.g. Seabees, RED HORSE, Engineering Battalion) or Industry. If Military assets are not available and a contract solution is sought, then another set of risk tolerances are introduced from the Acquisition community and Industry. The acquisition community risks focus on the ability to solicit, evaluate and award a contract within IGE, without protest, along with being able to manage the contract post award. Finally, Industry risks are focused on contractual terms (contract type (FFP/CR), liquidated damages, minimum guarantees), finance (profitability and cash flow) and ability to execute to the schedule. This panel will attempt to address these risks and provide recommendations on how to manage each stakeholder’s risk profile to come to a fair and equitable methodology for engaging Industry for COCOM requirements.
