Description

"Although San Francisco International Airport officials, and the local media, have repeatedly painted rosy pictures of a massive airport construction program that includes a new international terminal, the program is $1 billion over budget and years behind schedule. A review of airport budgets, contracts, audits, and other internal documents shows that much of the delay and overspending is attributable to what can only be described as bad management. And the management structure for the airport project appears to be teeming with conflicts of interest, as construction managers supervise themselves and set policy for a project where the bill for construction management- not construction itself, but the overseeing of construction contractors- has grown by more than 150 percent and now tops $196 million."
