ARLINGTON, Va. – HNTB Corporation received a contract from the United States Department of Transportation, Federal Transit Administration to provide project management oversight services in support of major transit capital projects nationwide.
As PMO contractor, HNTB will support FTA’s technical and management role in assessing the ability of transit project sponsors to successfully implement FTA’s capital programs. PMO contractors provide recommendations and insights to assist FTA in determining if those projects are being managed effectively, progressing on time and within budget, and are in accordance with the project sponsors’ approved plans and specifications. PMO contractors also assist FTA in monitoring project sponsors’ risk management, assessing readiness to advance projects to new phases and providing technical assistance to ensure project success.
“PMO ensures that federal funds deliver a maximum return when invested in public transportation projects,” said Diana Mendes, AICP, president of HNTB’s Mid-Atlantic Division. “We are grateful for FTA’s vote of confidence in our ability to support and extend its critical oversight capabilities, which lead to the successful delivery of transit projects that improve mobility in communities across the country.”
