SKANSA to hold late winter/ early spring Boost class

BOOST
Description of Program
The BOOST program is a ten-week hands on training program for certified minority,
women owned business contractors. The goal of the program is to provide training in
fundamental areas of construction business management and provides an opportunity
to network with other contractors, representatives from participating agencies,
Skanska and other relevant business organizations.
The course addresses topics that are challenging for all contractors, including
Accounting for Construction, Estimating and more. The format includes actual case
studies, group conversations and hands on demonstrations with proven business
practices. Course materials are presented by internal and external Skanska subject
experts. The program is free to participants.

 

Re-BOOST
Description of Program
This program takes our previous BOOST graduates and walks them through specific

projects from beginning to end with the full project team. Re-BOOST includes break-
out sessions that allow graduates to sit with project managers and first-tier contractors

to discuss project opportunities. Re-BOOST will not only prepare subcontractors
for opportunities on our projects, but will also inform bid packaging to maximize
MWBE firm opportunities.

ODOT provides a safe and reliable multimodal transportation system that connects people and helps Oregon’s communities and economy thrive.

REQUEST for PROPOSALS UTILIZING ODOT RFP 730-33447-18

Project Information The purpose of the Project is to improve the safety and operations on I-5 between I-405 and I-84, of the Broadway/Weidler interchange, and on adjacent surface streets in the vicinity of the Broadway/Weidler interchange and to enhance multimodal facilities in the Project Area. In achieving the purpose, the Project also will support improved local connectivity and multimodal access in the vicinity of the Broadway/Weidler interchange and improve multimodal connections between neighborhoods located east and west of I-5. The Project addresses the following primary needs:

• I-5 Safety: I-5 between I-405 and I-84 has the highest crash rate on urban interstates in the State of Oregon. Crash data from 2011 to 2015 indicate that I-5 between I-84 and the merge point from the NE Broadway ramp onto I-5 had a crash rate (for all types of crashes) that was approximately 3.5 times higher than the statewide average for comparable urban interstate facilities.

• I-5 Operations: The Project Area is at the crossroad of three regionally significant freight and commuter routes: I-5, I-84, and I-405. As a result, I-5 in the vicinity of the Broadway/Weidler interchange experiences some of the highest traffic volumes in the State of Oregon, carrying approximately 121,400 vehicles each day, and experiences 12 hours of congestion each day.

• Broadway/Weidler Interchange Operations: The complexity and congestion at the I-5 Broadway/Weidler interchange configuration is difficult to navigate for vehicles (including transit vehicles), bicyclists, and pedestrians. This impacts access to and from I-5 as well as to and from local streets. The high volumes of traffic on I-5 and Broadway/Weidler in this area contribute to
congestion and safety issues (for all modes) at the interchange ramps, the Broadway and Weidler overcrossings of I-5, and on local streets in the vicinity of the interchange.

• Travel Reliability on the Transportation Network: Travel reliability on the transportation
network decreases as congestion increases and safety issues expand. The most unreliable travel
times tend to occur at the end of congested areas and on the shoulders of the peak periods. Due to
these problems, reliability has decreased on I-5 between I-84 and I-405 for most of the day. Periods
of congested conditions on I-5 in the Project Area have grown over time from morning and
afternoon peak periods to longer periods throughout the day.

ODOT is conducting this Intermediate Procurement in conformance with ORS 279B.070 and OAR 137-047-0270. No specific level of work or funding is guaranteed by this solicitation process.
Work is anticipated to begin 8-1-2018 and is anticipated to be completed 11-30-2018. The Consultant shall not have or be perceived to have a conflict of interest when performing any of this work.
Proposer must be in compliance with the ODOT COI Guidelines.

Regional Infrastructure Fund Applications

Yesterday, Business Oregon and the Governor’s Regional Solutions Program officially opened a request for applications to the Regional Infrastructure Fund (RIF). This fund is one of the tools used to support economic and community development by providing grants and loans to local governments for Regional Solutions capital construction projects. Business Oregon administers the fund.

During the 2017 Legislative Session, the Legislature authorized the issuance of lottery bonds to produce $4 million in net proceeds for the RIF and requested that projects be approved by the Legislature or Emergency Board before the bonds are sold in spring of 2019. The $4 million is to be distributed statewide, with each of the 11 regions being allotted a minimum of $200,000. We are seeking applications for capital construction projects between $50,000 and $1 million.

Applications are due by April 30, 2018. Please visit the Regional Solutions website for the application and more information.

USDA Offers Loan Guarantees to Support Rural Businesses and Create Jobs

Apply Today for the Business and Industry Program

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development is accepting applications to support business development and expansion in rural Oregon that will retain or create jobs.

The Business and Industry (B&I) Program assists rural businesses with accessing credit while helping to mitigate risk for lenders. The funds may be used for most business purposes (with the exception of agricultural production), including initial business development or acquisition, expansion, the purchase of land or equipment, and debt refinancing. Up to $485 million is available nationwide.

Eligible borrowers include U.S. citizens who can demonstrate that the business being financed will primarily create or save jobs for U.S. residents in rural areas with a population of 50,000 or less. The borrower’s headquarters may be based within a larger city as long as the project is located in an eligible rural area. Lenders may be located anywhere and may apply to USDA for a loan guarantee of between 80 percent for loans of $5 million or less to 60 percent for loans of more than $10 million up to $25 million.

Through this USDA program, borrowers can benefit from increased access to capital and better pricing and terms than are typically given with conventional loans. Lenders using a B&I loan guarantee can benefit from improved bank profitability and liquidity management, increased loan-making ability as the federally guaranteed portion of the loan does not count toward a bank’s legal lending limit, and risk mitigation.

Contact a local Business and Cooperative Programs staff member in Oregon to begin the application process.
