5th Session - Flagstaff, AZ

Public Agencies have the critical task of delivering infrastructure and facilities for the beneficial use of the public they serve.  To do this, often these agencies enlist the help of design and construction professionals with the expertise to deliver their project in an efficient, cost effective and quality manner.  The key to accomplishing this is in selecting the right team to perform the work, but just how do you do that?

In this one-day course participants will learn the legal requirements contained in Titles 34, 41 and school procurement rules related to the selection process for design professionals and contractors for public projects.  In addition attendees will learn how to assemble a quality selection panel; clearly define selection criteria to receive the best responses from interested parties; understand how the shortlisting, interview and individual discussion processes work; and some best practices you can apply to your procurement/selection process to improve your project delivery outcomes.  Attendees will participate in a selection workshop, using the skills learned during the class to conduct a mock selection process.

Whether you are a public agency or School District working to ensure your selection process is not only compliant, but provides the results you need to deliver your CIP, or a design professional or contractor who wants a better understanding of how public owners conduct their selection processes, this course is for you.
