Services McMahon can provide

Funding applications

McMahon is experienced in completing the funding applications for each of the funding programs.

The cost estimates included with the applications are critical. The project sponsor is responsible for 100% of the project overruns.  Some overruns may be fundable through the local program change management process but are on a case-by-case basis.

Federal Requirements for Design Engineering

If federal funding for design engineering is requested in the funding application, all federal procurement policies must be followed when selecting a design consultant.  Information on the quality-based selection (QBS) process is included in the applications. Cost cannot be considered in the QBS process.
