    This free ACC Young Professionals (YP) webinar will provide an overview of how projects are procured (the design and bidding process) and who is involved along the way. The presenters will also discuss what unique aspects of your organization can impact projects. During this webinar you will learn about whether the airport’s structure affects the ability to respond to obstacles. For example, do you benefit by a large in-house staff, or are you impacted by approval processes?

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    At the end of this YP webinar, participants should understand:
    • How an airport’s sponsorship (municipally owned, agency-owned, privately-owned, etc.) affects the way projects are programmed, funded (AIP, CFCs, PFCs, etc.), and completed.
    • The process of procuring projects at different airports. For example, an agency may require an RFP, whereas a municipal airport has its own Public Works employees.
    • Possible stakeholders in capital projects: airport operations, engineering, capital programming, airport maintenance, or local residents, etc.
