Scope of Work

SCL performs and reports on selected audits and surveillance services of design and construction projects within the Sound Transit Capital Projects Program to ensure the design consultants and contractors meet the requirements of their contract with Sound Transit and of their Design or Construction QMP elements.

QMPs.
