Pace Suburban Bus Priority Portfolio Management Office
After being allocated more than $340 million by the Rebuild Illinois capital plan, Pace Suburban Bus selected STV to provide program management services for a new Priority Project Management Office. The assignment includes design oversight, construction planning, implementation, administration, and assistance in establishing best practices for eight upcoming facility projects. These facility projects include new bus maintenance facilities, multimodal transportation centers, parking lot extensions, and upgrades that will accommodate compressed natural gas vehicles.
STV is currently conducting discovery workshops of two completed projects to identify administrative or operational challenges. The firm will then create a project charter, providing the framework and support critical to the delivery of Priority Capital Projects. The firm will also implement paperless workflows, update specifications and contracts to current benchmarks, and empower Pace Suburban Bus to carry out new projects more efficiently. STV’s implementation will improve reporting, budgets, submittals, change management, and schedules that will anticipate needs, show trends, and allow for more streamlined business processes. Once complete, the firm will write a program management plan and reference manuals for this new culture of management and mentor Pace Suburban Bus employees on how to use these new tools.
