Abstract: The East Bay Municipal Utility District's (District) Wastewater Department annual construction program grew from $2.4 million in 1986 to $60 million in 1991. The District responded to this aggressive construction program by increasing construction management support staff over the same period from 4 to 30 to staff key positions on those projects with District personnel. This approach contrasts with that of many agencies, where typically CM responsibility and staffing in periods of accelerated growth are contracted out to consultants.
