Minnesota’s “best value” law gives local governments greater flexibility in delivering their projects. Learn how the design-build method can provide higher quality projects faster and more cost-effectively.

This workshop will focus on:

  • The two-phase design-build source selection process
  • How design-build incentive contracting promotes cooperation, collaboration and helps local governments deliver high quality projects on time and on budget
  • Performance-based requirements

The speaker will be Craig Unger, Principal and CEO of Unger Security Solutions, LLC, which provides consulting services for acquisition management and project delivery and advisory services within the security, intelligent and detention environment. 

Unger served as President of the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA 2003 – 2004) and is regarded as a leader of the design-build movement in the public sector. DBIA also granted Unger with the Institute’s highest honor in 2015, presenting him with the Brunelleschi Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2018, DBIA elevated Unger to “Fellow” as a member of the inaugural Fellowship class elected by a jury of their peers.
