Spitzer & Associates has provided land acquisition, relocation assistance, program management, QA/QC, and oversight services for numerous large government agencies under the requirements of the Uniform Act, including the Federal Transportation Administration (FTA), Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Government Services Administration (GSA), and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). We also provided the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) with Program Management Services for right of way acquisition, relocation, QA/QC, and property management for GARVEE funded projects. We oversaw the development, execution, and operation of this $1 billion, full-service, right of way acquisition program.
Spitzer & Associates is a national leader in FTA Program Management Oversight (PMO) services. Under the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), FTA is responsible for administering grants and loans to assist state and local agencies in financing, acquisition, construction, and improvements to transportation facilities. We were contracted to provide PMO Real Estate activities to ensure that agencies executed projects professionally, efficiently and in accordance with laws and regulations. We provided monitoring activities, including interviews, review of documents, observations, examination of records, and analysis of data and information. We worked with the FTA to create guidelines for implementing the real estate component of Project Management Oversight of FTA New Starts Programs.
We respond to each project individually: developing on-target solutions that meet each client’s unique needs. Using both turnkey and collaborative approaches, Spitzer & Associates tailors our efforts to ensure that all government and regulatory guidelines are met and produce the most effective results possible.
