    Gilbane provides global construction, fuels, and environmental services tailored to support the unique needs of U.S. Federal government clients across both domestic and international projects. When you contract with Gilbane, you get the people, qualifications, and experience to perform secure and non-secure federal facility work, backed by more.   The contracts are for highway and/or bridge design and engineering services for highway and/or bridge design and engineering services and for other engineering, planning, and architectural services for construction projects predominantly associated with Federal Land Management agencies (National Park Service, U.S. Forest Service, Fish and. Firms identify their employees with value engineering certification as part of WisDOT's registration process. What is Value Engineering (VE)? VE is a cost savings tool that, per Federal requirements, is to be used on design projects that have a total estimated cost of $50 million or more as defined in the environmental document.

The value of a product or service is recognized according to the appropriateness level of its performance and cost. Several federal construction agencies report on the relationship of value engineering to their agency. Specific problem areas in value engineering are analyzed such as--(1) principles of organizational arrangements, (2) cost reduction, (3) the position of value engineering in management, (4) contract incentive clauses, (5) project selection and initiation, (6) configuration management, (7).

In response to a congressional request, GAO assessed the potential impact of the increased use of value engineering in federal found that the agencies that use the concept of value engineering could realize more savings if its use was increased or if it was applied earlier in the design process.

Value engineering is a systematic process for evaluating a project's proposed. Value engineering elicits ideas on ways of maintaining or enhancing results while reducing life cycle costs.

In the construction phase, GSA PBS contractors are encouraged through shared savings to draw on their special 'know-how' to propose changes that cut costs while maintaining or enhancing quality, value, and functional performance. Value Engineering Final Rule.

The Value Engineering Final Rule (pdf) was published on September 5, (Docket No. FHWA). This Final Rule modifies Federal regulation, Title 23 Code of Federal Regulation (CFR) partto reflect the revisions made in Federal law (Section (a)(3) of Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act, MAP).

When a construction contractor proposes a value engineering change to construction requirements, materials, or methods, the contractor shares in the savings. The change may reduce the cost of construction or the life cycle cost of the building, but must not lessen building performance, design quality, safety, appearance, or ease of upkeep.

The Office of Federal Procurement Policy (OFPP) in the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is publishing final revisions to OMB Circular A, Value Engineering, to update and reinforce policies associated with the consideration and use of value engineering (VE). value engineering, a proven cost saving technique, in Federal construction.

Our review was made pursuant to the Budget and Account- ing Act, (31 U.S.C. 53), and the Accounting and Audit- ing Act of (31 U.S.C. 67). Copies of this report are being sent to the heads of the agencies involved.

SUMMARY: In accordance with OMB Memorandum M “Reducing Burden for Federal Agencies by Rescinding and Modifying OMB Memoranda,” the Office of Federal Procurement Policy (OFPP) within the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is proposing to amend OMB Circular A, Value Engineering, to reduce the reporting burden on Federal agencies.

Value Engineering in the Construction Industry The ASPR was oriented toward the purchase of materials, equipment, and systems, but it also had the effect of automatically introducing value engineering to two of the largest construction agencies in the country: the U.S.

VECP are post-award value engineering proposals made by construction contractors during the course of construction under a value engineering clause in the contract.

The Federal-aid Policy Guide, FAPG G, defines VECPs as “a construction contract provision which encourages the contractor to propose changes in the contract requirements.”.

Public Law and the implementation directive for that law in OMB Circular A are very clear that Value Engineering is a federal requirement on all federal procurements/projects. OMB Circular A directs all federal programs to establish and maintain a viable Value Engineering Program and that Value Engineering studies shall be conducted on all projects with a procurement cost.

MISSION: The Office of Federal Procurement Policy Act (41 U.S.C.), requires each executive agency to establish and maintain cost-effective Value Engineering procedures and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A requires Federal agencies to apply VE procedures to all new projects and programs with estimated costs of at least $5 million or such lower.
