Board Gives High-Speed Rail Contractor More Time and Money

(Sacramento, CA)
Thursday, May 02, 2013
Board members on Thursday told contractor Parsons Brinckerhoff that the California High-Speed Rail Authority has beefed up its senior management since the first contract was signed with the company in 2006 and will not act as a rubber-stamp, as critics have charged.
 
The rail authority has been criticized for relying too heavily on outside contractors.

The board also approved carrying over $24 million in unspent money from the previous $199 million contract with the firm.

The authority's chief executive, Jeff Morales, was a senior vice president at Parsons Brinckerhoff before being hired last June.
