Details: Since 1999, JBC Associates has served as a member of the Project Management Oversight Contractor (PMOC) team for over $8.5 Billion in transit construction in Washington DC, Massachusetts, Florida, Utah, Tennessee and Puerto Rico. JBC has been responsible for scheduling oversight and evaluating the status of construction and start-up phases on FTA funded projects to confirm completion by the project’s Revenue Operations Date (ROD). Often, JBC staff performed risk modeling as part of the Schedule Risk Assessment and Risk Mitigation Study during pre-construction. We reviewed the project master schedule and updates analyzing recorded progress, critical paths, and projected completion dates. We attended on-site progress meetings with key project personnel to discuss project progress, contractor performances, issues, and changes to project milestone dates. We contributed to monthly PMOC reports to the FTA documenting findings, conclusions, concerns, and recommendations. Additionally, JBC has reviewed project change order documentation and procedures to verify compliance with FTA regulations and guidelines.
