The CMAA honored Secretary Davey for his leadership in delivering “dramatic innovation and change to a large organization responsible for an impressive portfolio of varied projects,” according to CMAA President Bruce D’Agostino.
The construction management association says Secretary Davey has led MassDOT efforts to adopt the highest professional standards of practice and construction management principles.
Governor Deval Patrick appointed Richard A. Davey MassDOT Secretary and Chief Executive Officer in September 2011. Under Secretary Davey’s direction, MassDOT is focused on operating a transportation system that meets the Governor’s priorities: safety, customer service, employee engagement, fiscal responsibility and innovation.
“Rich Davey has been a tremendous asset to my team and a champion for improved transportation in Massachusetts,” said Governor Deval Patrick. “Under his leadership, our transportation agencies have become more innovative, more customer-focused and more efficient. I congratulate him on this honor.”
The list of accomplishments during Secretary’s Davey’s leadership includes:
• Project Delivery- record investments in rebuilding roads, bridges, rail and transit; $1.4 billion in FY2013 for road and bridge construction includes the Accelerated Bridge Program funded reconstruction of the Longfellow Bridge and other historic Charles River Bridges.
• Technology Innovation- including MBTA’s first-in-the-nation “mTicket” mobile ticketing program, Registry of Motor Vehicles “next generation” operating system, and Highway “RTTM” Real Time Travel smart phone app that provides real time travel conditions along the Interstate 93 corridor.
• Healthy Transportation Policy- a directive that all state transportation projects must seek to increase bicycle, transit and walking options and pursue the Mode Shift Goal announced by Secretary Davey that calls for tripling Massachusetts bicycling, transit and walking by 2030.
• Performance Management- Secretary Davey relaunched the Office of Performance Management Innovation to provide data measuring transportation outcomes and establishing a culture of innovation that delivers transportation reform.
