2 January 14, 2009 Transportation Research Board A HOCHTIEF Company Washington, DC Contractors have 2 overall categories of P3 risks - 1 – Pursuit Risks: Pre-bid 2 – Contract Risks: Project

3 January 14, 2009 Transportation Research Board A HOCHTIEF Company Washington, DC 1) Elevated Pursuit risks - Why is this even a risk if it’s during Pre-bid phase?  Contractor’s investment  Extensive senior management time - potential for lost opportunity  Spend ~1.0 – 1.5% of project value - (engineering, estimating, legal)  Does NOT include Concessionaire costs, which are typically much higher
