Project Background

Sound Transit is implementing a three-county regional transit system plan known as Sound Move. Sound Move is a combination of three transportation systems: Sounder commuter rail, running 82 miles from Everett to Tacoma/Lakewood; Link light rail, a 14-mile initial segment connecting the cities of Seattle and Tukwila with a 1.2 mile Airport Link extension to SeaTac and a 1.6 mile line in Tacoma (in operation); and Regional Express, featuring 18 new ST Express limited stop, long-haul bus routes and numerous improvements to transit centers, park-and-ride lots, and HOV direct access ramps throughout the region. The Systems Consulting, LLC quality assurance team along with management performed selected assessments, surveillance and audits of contracts within the Sound Transit Capital Projects Capital Program. The purpose of the audits was to verify that applicable elements of the Capital Projects Quality Assurance Program were acceptable and had been developed, documented and effectively implemented in accordance with specified requirements. Contracts included projects in both the design and construction phases.
