  • Abstract:
    In May 2011, the Senate Standing Committee on Budget and Fiscal Review added language to the budget

    bill that requires Caltrans to commission an independent study of the costs and benefits of hiring

    consultants to address temporary increases in workload.

    As part of its preparations to commission the independent study, Caltrans wishes to know what research

    has already been carried out comparing the costs for contracted firms versus the costs for state department

    of transportation (DOT) staff to conduct the same activities related to highway design and construction.

    To aid in this effort, this Preliminary Investigation aims to synthesize completed and in-process national-

    and state-related research that compares the cost of outsourcing highway design and construction

    activities with the cost of completing those tasks with in-house staff. We also explore intangible costs and

    consider possible trends.
