PANYNJ formalizes contractor evaluations for future contracts PANYNJ

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) will use a bidding firms' past performance record on previous PANYNJ projects in contract award decisions.

PANYNJ says the move is part of its "continuing effort to assure completion of Port Authority construction projects on time and within budget."

PANYNJ says that performance evaluations will be prepared during and at the completion of projects by port authority professionals for all contractors, subcontractors and construction management firms on all PANYNJ construction projects. Less-than-satisfactory ratings received at any time during the previous three years will be formally considered in contract award determinations.

"Making sure contractors and construction managers are held accountable for their past performance is an important tool in achieving our goal of on-time and on-budget performance in all of our projects," said Port Authority Executive Director Rick Cotton. "This also requires that the port authority step up its own game in managing projects to assure timely delivery against a project's schedule and assure that project costs are tightly managed and hit budget targets."
