Otay Water District – Program Support

Project Synopsis
CPM Partners provided program and project support services to the Otay Water District for the management of its Capital Improvement Program.
Otay Water District is a publicly owned water and sewer service agency serving the needs of approximately 186,000 people in a 125.5 square mile
area encompassing the communities of southern El Cajon, La Mesa, Rancho San Diego, Jamul, Spring Valley, Bonita, Eastern Chula Vista, Eastlake, and
Otay Mesa along the international border with Mexico. It is a California special district authorized under the provisions of the Municipal Water
District Act of 1911 and is revenue neutral. On an annual basis, the Capital Improvement Program has over 80 active projects whose schedule progress and expenditures are updated and reported monthly.

CPM Partners developed a program level master schedule utilizing Primavera P6 scheduling software that includes planning, design, construction and closeout activities for each project. Working closely with the individual project managers and the District’s finance department, CPM Partners developed a reporting protocol that allows the transfer of data, program updating, and reporting to occur within one week. Monthly reports include individual project manager schedule update and expenditures, program level budget verses expenditure reports organized by project category and project manager, trend reports for each project category and project manager, and analysis of observed variance.

Services Provided
CPM Partners provided scheduling services which included a Lead Scheduler and Schedulers to prepare monthly schedule updates and monthly applications for payment, monthly schedule reviews and time impact analysis. In addition to providing project controls associated with the master schedule, the scope included development of individual construction schedule, review of contractor baseline, and providing construction delay analysis.
