Upcoming Webinar

Oct 20 & 21, 9AM – 1PM – The LAP Professional Services Checklist identifies the federal requirements associated with professional services procurement. The training was developed based on numerous questions regarding the federal and state requirements, how to review project documents and incorporate items correctly, and on audit findings which directly correspond to the Checklists. This course centers on review of sample RFP/RFQ and contract documents and identifying best practices and pitfalls associated with professional services procurement in the LAP program.

Upcoming Webinar

October 27, 2:30 – 4PM – The Global Cool Cities Alliance (GCCA) will present the science behind the Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect, discuss the latest on their Cool Roadways Partnership and highlight some of the heat related language in the INVEST in America Act (2021 Infrastructure Bill). The session will focus on explaining the complex nature of UHI, highlight what cities are doing to combat it and review the proposed federal funding available for local agencies to deploy solutions to mitigate urban heat while also helping to preserve pavements.
