Share this event:



This month's presentation will focus on alternative procurement methods in construction contracting in Washington State. Issues to be discussed are the primary differences between traditional methods versus alternative methods, criteria to apply alternative methods, pros and cons of utilizing alternative methods, recent and future changes in the governing and laws concerning alternative methods, and some case studies involving past and current projects.

Linneth Riley-Hall, CPPO, has a thorough knowledge of the laws and regulations governing public agency contracting. She also serves on the Capital Projects Review Board (CPARB) Project Review Committee (PRC), which reviews and approves public works projects using the design-build (DB) and general contractor/construction manager contracting (GC/CM) procedures and certifies public bodies. In January 2013 Linneth assisted with the two day GC/CM training sponsored by the AGC Education Foundation.

Linneth is the Design & Construction Contracts Manager for the Central Puget Sound Regional Transit Authority (Sound Transit) responsible for the procurement, administration and close out of various complex architectural/engineering and construction contracts (including GC/CM and Design Build) for significant capital construction projects valuing in excess of 15 billion dollars. From 2001 through March 2010 she managed the solicitation, award, execution and close out of the City of Seattle's public works contracts; developed rules, policies and procedures governing alternative public works GC/CM, D-B and Job Order Contracts; managed the consultant roster program; developed rules, policies and procedures governing the use of consultants; developed, implemented and administered the City's social equity programs.
