    • Abstract:
      In 1988, prompted by the many national studies calling for more investment in public works infrastructure, Congress asked the Office of Technology Assessment (OTA) to evaluate how technologies, management, and financing could improve public works and make them more efficient and productive. From the outset, OTA planned to review State and local public works management and finance to spotlight issues that needed attention. The review produced so much practical and useful information that a decision was made to publish the results early in 1990 for use by the 101st Congress in this special report. Several intertwined issues quickly came to dominate OTA's discussions with State and local public works officials. As this report documents, the concerns centered on how to raise more money for upgrading and maintaining public works, how to enhance public works, and how to preserve the community environment and quality of life. Local officials focused on the complex tasks of resolving conflicts among these issues in a controversy-ridden and politically charged arena. State representatives highlighted the steps they have already taken to increase support for localities. This special report also outlines the roles of Federal, State, and local governments and points to avenues for strengthening the intergovernmental structure for managing and financing public works.
