Infrastructure projects almost always involve coordination with outside entities not in a direct contractual relationship with the agencies or the prime jurisdiction, which are referred to as third parties. Examples of third parties include cities, counties, and other districts; utility and telecom providers; permitting agencies, and water and sanitary districts. Third parties can be a source of delay in advancing infrastructure projects, including opening these projects on time and/or cause significant project cost overruns.
DLCE has over a decade of experience in working with cities and utility companies to help ensure that third parties act in a timely manner and share the urgency of the agency in completing a project as planned. This primarily includes working with the City of Los Angeles, Public Works, and key Bureaus. The expertise to help navigate third parties is one of DLCE strong assets and is second to none.
