The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) received a report on its Water System Improvement Program (WSIP) from a five-person Independent Peer Review Panel on January 19, 2010. One of the Independent Peer Review Panel’s recommendations was to:
“Conduct an independent test/audit of the CM organization mid-to-late 2010 to verify performance. Because the CM organization is at the beginning of a steep ramp of work, it would be prudent for the SFPUC to commit to evaluate it shortly after the large projects have begun. At that time the organization can be adjusted to address any problems that have become evident once the organization has been put to the test.”
With respect to that recommendation, the SFPUC authorized the WSIP Program Manager, Parsons, to contract with four senior-level Construction Management (CM) industry professionals to conduct a review of the WSIP’s current CM Program. Parsons contracted with the CM Review Panel (Panel) members in October/November of 2010. The Panel conducted its first on-site review during the week of November 14, 2010, and prepared this Report for submittal to the SFPUC prior to the end of December 2010.
A second CM Review Panel conducted a review during the week of October 3, 2011 to address specific areas of interest to the SFPUC Revenue Bond Oversight Committee. A third report was published by Professor William Ibbs in response to the second CM Review Panel Report. Click the links below to view or download the reports.
