A $789 Billion Stimulus Program: Where Will All the Money Go?

 The $787 billion stimulus package has now been in play for almost six months. With the funds set to expire on Sept. 30, 2010, contractors are asking, “Where’s the money?” And just as importantly, they want to know how they can get a piece of the action. WPL Publishing went looking for the answers and presented them in a two-part webinar series on the stimulus program, officially known as the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, or ARRA.

I sincerely hope the comments about accountability are true. I have long advocated interim project reviews to look at things like project organization, project delivery method, project controls (especially the team's ability to accurately forecast costs to complete), and recommendations to assist the team to bring the project on time and within budget. The problem with these type of reviews is they take highly skilled people with backgrounds in estimating, scheduling, contracts, project controls, project management, quality control, and project closeout.
