Rudin Center Report: Expanding One Law Could Save New Yorkers Billions on Infrastructure

A report released June 24 by the Rudin Center for Transportation Policy and Management (housed at NYU Wagner) shows New York could save taxpayers billions of dollars simply by authorizing widespread use of Design-Build procurement practices on public infrastructure projects.

The report, sponsored by the Association for a Better New York (ABNY) and RBC Capital Markets, highlights the success of Design-Build projects throughout the country in addition to its successful implementations in New York, despite State law dictating that it can only be used on a limited basis. The report calls on Albany to expand the practice to save taxpayers money and shorten the completion time on critical infrastructure projects.
