Download the 2022/2023  BAC Annual Report

The Build America Center is pleased to present our 2022/23 Annual Report which reflects a year of significant accomplishments and impact. It showcases our empowering localities initiative, training and outreach activities, partnership building, and research contributions.

In the 2022-2023 fiscal year, the BAC developed and delivered over 35 technical assistance activities, including webinars, workshops, and consultations. The BAC also hosted several seminars and conferences bringing together transportation professionals, researchers, and industry leaders to exchange knowledge and ideas. A major highlight were two CFO Forums on relevant topics; virtual gatherings that attracted over 75 financial officers from 30 state DOTs.

Partnership building is at the core of the BAC’s work. We continued to strengthen our relationships with key stakeholders, such as the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Build America Bureau, state DOTs, and industry associations. We also established new partnerships with non-profit organizations, private entities, and international agencies.

The BAC’s research contribution in FY 22-23 was significant, with several publications and reports on cutting-edge topics in transportation. Our research was focused in three main areas: innovative financing, alternative project delivery, and sustainable and equitable transportation. We developed one standard and best practice, four white papers and one web tool (BIL Launchpad), which is widely used by localities to identify federal grant opportunities.

Thank you for your continued support and interest in the Build America Center and its activities.
