Construction - Partnership for Excellence in Contract Administration Awards

WSDOT and our Contractor partners are responsible for delivering transportation projects in a timely, professional, and responsive manner. Occasionally, our collaboration results in a project that is a little more exceptional than the rest. If this brings to mind a particular project, you should nominate the project and team for the 2019 Partnership for Excellence in Contract Administration Awards. Together, we want to recognize and encourage extraordinary achievement within our Contractor/WSDOT partnerships.

The Associated General Contractors/WSDOT Lead Team will contact the winning project teams and present the Partnership for Excellence in Contract Administration Awards during the Annual AGC/WSDOT Joint Meeting and the WSDOT Annual Statewide Project Engineer’s Conference.
