The U.S. Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA): Highlighting the Urgent Need for Project Management Skills

Signed into law in November 2021, the U.S. Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) introduces $550 billion of new spending for infrastructure projects including transportation and road proposals, broadband access, clean water, and electric grid renewal.  

These critical projects to rebuild American infrastructure exacerbate the urgent need for project managers – and those with project management skills – to manage taxpayer funded investments efficiently and deliver project outcomes on time and on budget.
