Programs and Partnerships
Arizona Transportation Partnering Excellence Award
For more than 20 years, the Arizona Department of Transportation has engaged in a formal partnering program with its contractors. The program facilitates productive relationships, establishes a process for amicable resolution of conflicts and has led to more projects being completed on time and on budget.
Project teams including the Arizona Department of Transportation, contractors and other organizations were recognized at the 66th Arizona Conference on Roads and Streets in Tucson, hosted by the American Council of Engineering Companies of Arizona from April 12 to 14.
The Partnering Excellence Awards competition, which began in 2005, is designed to recognize partnership teams that demonstrate a high degree of achievement through their practice of partnering principles and their application of the partnering processes related to the transportation industry.
The winners of the 2016 Partnering Excellence Awards demonstrated the ability to come together and develop productive relationships that ensured the success of their respective projects. Teams were also judged on their ability to resolve issues in a professional manner.
