By Scott Hutsell – Public Works Board Chair

The Interagency Multijurisdictional System Improvement Team, established under ESHB 1677, has been meeting on a regular schedule to lay out the framework and strategy to obtain developed outcomes from our strategic plan. The core group is led by the Public Works Board along with members from the Departments of Commerce, Health and Ecology. The team has developed a Memo of Understanding signed by all four parties how we are going to work together along with a Broader Group which has the potential of including multiple agencies both state and federal, stakeholder groups and industry experts.

The IMSIT team presented its work progress to the House Capitol Budget Committee and had its kickoff in January inviting members of the Broader Group to lay out some of the framework and strategy steps that have already been accomplished and to start to identify gaps, barriers and challenges to infrastructure financing. We have developed a page on the Public Works Board website to display all of the materials developed to date and an ongoing calendar of upcoming meetings, scheduled work sessions in Olympia and around the state. The IMSIT team is always open to suggestions and our meetings are always open to anyone that has a passion to improve the way infrastructure is financed. Stay tuned to more exciting news as we strive to better coordinate how we deliver better infrastructure projects.

Passionate about infrastructure!? The Interagency Multijurisdictional System Improvement Team (IMSIT) is a joint effort focused on improving the state’s infrastructure systems.

The Public Works Board, in concert with the departments of Health, Ecology, and Commerce are in the early stages of this work and invite you to check out the IMSIT website and come offer your perspective.
