Risk Allocation During the Bidding & Construction Processes

William Warren, a partner in the Construction Practice, presented during the 86th Annual International Municipal Lawyers Association Conference. Bill's presentation, Risk Allocation During the Bidding & Construction Processes, discussed how the effective management of projects requires rigorous attention to risk allocation and risk reduction strategies. All construction programs have the same objectives: (1) cost efficiency and avoidance of waste; (2) quality and programmatic content, and (3) timeliness of completion. Often referred to as the "three legs of the stool," these project objectives are in constant competition with each other. While disputes are not inevitable, they do occur notwithstanding the best efforts of municipal counsel. In response, municipal attorneys must take an aggressive approach in marshaling the facts, securing expert analysis, and managing the municipals.
