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 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.
