Firm Role

VSCE partnered with an international firm to form APM joint venture, which provides program management, project controls, data management services, and administrative support to the Alameda CTC staff in the fulfillment of these programs and projects.  VSCE developed the agency’s Quality Assurance (QA) Plan and was integral in the preparation of a Best Practices Program Management Plan, Strategic Plan, various reports, and cash flow analysis in order to meet capital program delivery objectives required  of the former ACCMA. VSCE staff has operated as an extension of the Agency representing the Alameda CTC at a variety of meetings and partnering activities.  VSCE additionally assisted Alameda CTC in creating boilerplate graphics and presentation materials, project area maps, PowerPoint images, fact sheets, and other visual aides for outreach to both public and private sector targets.

Specific cost-monitoring responsibilities include utilization of a cost control database and an invoice cost tracking system (ICTS) requiring efficient data-entry methods, and document control. Reports are generated and designed to monitor cost, forecast and offer real-time cost analysis – all proven added value for the project managers.  In addition, VSCE helped to write the process and procedures for the overall development of various documents and supported Agency staff with the following responsibilities:

  • PSR and PR Contracts Support
  • Design Oversight
  • Estimating
  • Environmental Review Support
  • Utility Coordination
  • Permit Coordination  Draft Right of Way Coordination
