This program will provide a platform for state DOT Chief Financial Officers (CFOs) to share experiences, best practices, and common concerns. The Build America Center will work with the CFOs to identify State DOTs’ needs for technical assistance.
Chair: Jaclyn Hartman, CFO of Maryland DOT
BAC Coordinator: Professor Qingbin Cui.
The first CFO Forum is schedule for late August or September 2022 and will feature discussions on the following two topics:
- How to leverage existing LPA networks at the state level?
- What is the role of state DOTs to support LPAs for FHWA discretionary funds?
- How state DOTs identify local matching funds for new federal funding
- How state DOTs could promote new revenue sources/mechanisms (e.g. toll) to increase the matching funds pool
