ISSUE

In 2019, the Board approved awarding a seven-year (plus three (3) one-year options), cost plus fixed fee Contract No. PS54007 to PQM, Inc, to provide Quality Management Consultant Services that assist Metro in the delivery of voter approved Measures R, M, and other Board approved Capital Improvement projects.

The primary objective of the Quality Management Consultant is to implement Metro's Quality Management Oversight (QMO) Program which is a risk-based management oversight program to monitor Metro's consultants' and contractors' activities and performance throughout project delivery. Monitoring activities include the implementation of management plans as well as design and construction work products. The QMO program provides Metro with a more consistent, effective way for project teams to oversee and manage their Capital Improvement projects.
