Another perspective on why the Green Line procurement method was a mistake

Pioneer Institute: “MBTA Experiment Gone Wrong! The Green Line Extension Contract”

“The first and most obvious issue with the use of the CM/GC procurement method for the Green Line Extension is that a guaranteed price was not included as a component of the bidding process.  White Skanska Kiewit (WSK) was awarded the CM/GC contract before the design had been completed.  This eliminated any form of meaningful price competition from the procurement process, resulting in the cost overrun catastrophe the MBTA faces today.”
