Pay Factors for Asphalt-Concrete Construction: Effect of Construction Quality on Agency Costs


The quality of the construction process is a major factor in determining how well a pavement will perform under traffic loading and when subjected to environmental influences. To improve the construction process, quality control/quality assurance (QC/QA) procedures and pay incentives have been instituted in recent years. It is the objective of this report to demonstrate a rational and feasible method for quantitatively establishing penalties/bonuses for asphalt concrete construction with the initial emphasis placed on new asphalt concrete pavement construction.
