Michael Sedge, president of the Michael-Bruno Group, has been selected to speak at the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) Joint Engineering & Training Conference, May 23-25 in Kansas City, Missouri.

According to the SAME JETC Review Committee, Sedge’s abstract “AE Challenges in Design-Build Contracts” was selected from over 140 submissions and consider this to be an excellent asset to this year’s educational experience.

“In recent years, RFP requirements for AEs within the design-build sector have becoming increasingly challenging,” say Sedge. “The recent NAVFAC addition of Designer-of-Record (DOR) services often pit the AE in the middle, between primes and government. On one hand, DOR services during construction place the AE in a position of representing the government, but on the other, they are still a subcontractor and being paid by the prime. This, to say the least, can create conflict between all parties. This is but one of the topics that will be discussed in this presentation.”
