ACEC-ODOT Partnership

ACEC-ODOT Partnership Background

 
Established in 2005, the working relationship between the American Council of Engineering Companies of Oregon and the Oregon Department of Transportation was established to address:
  • The mutual understanding of the working relationship between the two organizations;
  • Partner communication and collaboration protocols; and
  • Issue identification, tracking, and resolution.

The partnership is comprised of two primary committees: the Steering Committee and the Liaison Committee. Standing committees are used to address specific work assignments and vary based on subject matter.
