Examples of Iowa Taxpayer-funded Projects

Publicly-funded projects that have used the alternative delivery system have repeatedly cost more than necessary. These extra expenses are passed on to the taxpayers. If the public officials had selected the Design-Bid-Build construction delivery system, taxpayer dollars would have been saved.

ICBA has pulled together examples of taxpayer-funded projects that either used an alternative delivery system like Construction Management or changed to Design-Bid-Build. These examples show ways the Design-Bid-Build method would have saved money on the project.
