SEP 14: Annual Report 2009: Capital Beltway HOT Lanes Project

6 Risk Allocations and Management

One shortcoming of the VDOT oversight budget is that it does not provide contingency funds. Over the first year of the project, various issues would have been far easier to address if contingency funds were available to VDOT. These include:

  • Special studies associated with ambiguities in the contractual project scope
  • Community desire for additional soundwall protection
  • Fairfax County concerns regarding access to iNova Hospital
  • MOT issues
  • Permit requirements from third parties such as Fairfax County Park Authority, MWAA, and Norfolk Southern Railroad

Ultimately, VDOT was forced to request additional funds from the Commonwealth Transportation Board to address these issues.

Risk items are perhaps best viewed in terms of issues. These represent scope items that are ambiguous with regard to responsibility and inclusion in the contractual scope, as well as items that were unanticipated but are now seen as necessary to advancing the project.

The project team is still refining its approach to addressing and solving these issues, and many remain unresolved at this point. Exhibit 10 presents the Issues Log (Fluor's PCO log).:
