DIVISION OF OPERATIONS
Began in 1991, the KCA and KDOT committed to doing business in a more collaborative manner. A task force was created to review adversarial relationships between KDOT and contractor personnel. From this task force study, a joint KCA/KDOT Committee was formed and the first Partnering Workshop was held in January 1992. In subsequent years, annual workshops were conducted to establish and affirm the partnering concept and process for KDOT and KCA member employees. Partnering is always encouraged and project specific workshops were held for larger construction projects across the state. As a result, the KDOT/KCA Partnering Program had an extremely positive and effective impact on the successful completion of the Comprehensive Highway Program. Likewise, it will play a critical role in the administration and completion of the Comprehensive Transportation Program and beyond.
