Market Outlook: Capital Projects 

In these economically and politically challenging times, Capital projects and infrastructure, CP&I, CEOs acknowledge that they need to address greater expectations from wider stakeholders if they want to grow their business successfully. Forging good governmental relationships is key, given government’s frequent involvement in infrastructure projects. Cultivating and adapting to a world of multiple stakeholders, diverse values and attitudes is also critical. And given the public scope of many capital and infrastructure projects, communicating the environmental impact and the wider value for local communities will also be an important part of doing business in this new multi-polar world. - PwC

Talking Points:

  • Update of Infrastructure Program

  • Update of Community Reconstruction Program

  • Opportunities

New York’s 30 percent MWBE contract utilization goal, the highest in the nation, and encouraged the participation of MWBE firms throughout the State. During recent remarks, Ms. Bova-Hiatt specifically spoke about opportunities available through GOSR’s comprehensive portfolio of NY Rising programs, as the agency continues to pave the way for a better, stronger New York.


As we invest $4.4 billion in federal Community Development Block Grant, Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funding, we remain whole-heartedly committed to forging partnerships with the State’s outstanding MWBE companies, she said. By tapping into the talents and skill sets of these firms, we understand that everyone wins. Together we can build in a more resilient manner that is better prepared to withstand the impacts of future storms.
