General Session

Accurately Measuring Deferred Maintenance in the States
State-owned capital assets across the U.S. have been deteriorating for decades due to insufficient investment, putting both public safety and economic development at risk. This presentation focuses on the accurate measurement of statewide deferred maintenance needs as a fundamental first step in resolving this infrastructure challenge. Pew has found that many states view collecting reliable data, developing standard definitions, and centralizing responsibility as practices that facilitate measurement.

The Small Projects Team Initiative in Massachusetts
In September 2016 the Commonwealth of Massachusetts formed a Small Projects Team, responsible for completion of deferred maintenance projects statewide with a value under $10 million.  The Small Projects Team is completing architectural study and design, procurement, construction and closeout in half the time previously required.  This is how they did it.

Make It Real: Enhanced Design Experience with BIM & Virtual Reality
Often, end users are inexperienced in the design process, including the “reality” as depicted in 2-D drawings.  3-D renderings of critical space components can be used effectively to provide them with understandable design information.  However, having the ability to immerse them into the space via 3-D Virtual Reality (VR), where they can both “explore” and “change” the space, is an invaluable and effective tool.  The efficacy of this VR tool will be explored and demonstrated.

Unlocking the Potential of Government Real Estate
Current budget pressures should compel governments to manage their real property portfolios with an eye towards unlocking the underlying value.  This session will examine how states can harness the commercial potential of their real estate by focusing not on just on use, but highest and best use.  The discussion will showcase how governments at all levels have capitalized on the underlying value of their real property assets while continuing to support agency mission requirements.

Pillars of a Successful JOC Program
As Job Order Contracting continues to expand and evolve beyond its original conception by the Corps of Engineers back in the 1980’s, some users have inserted ideas and specifications that restrict its flexibility and diminish the benefits as envisioned by the COE.  Consequently, some users have become disenchanted with the tool and stopped using it or decide not to try it. This presentation takes a look at the basics of what it takes to make a JOC program successful for the owner, end user and contractor.
