Tim Sheehan, California Watch
High-Speed Rail Authority
California is about to build the largest public works project in the state's history: a system of high-speed, electric passenger trains. And even before a spade of dirt is turned, perhaps late next year, the state will have spent about $630 million.
What does California have to show for it?
Thousands of pages of strategies, studies and plans – and a chorus of concern over the California High-Speed Rail Authority's budget management and its ability to monitor an army of consultants.
The Fresno Bee, as part of a project with California Watch, has examined the rail authority's 15-year budget history and current consulting contracts. By far, the largest chunks of cash have been paid to consultants and contractors hired by the authority, which has only a small in-house administrative staff.
Over the past two years, however, state oversight agencies repeatedly have cited problems – contract payments made without verifying that work was actually performed, payments for services or equipment not covered in consulting contracts, and a lack of policies and procedures to review invoices and payments.
With spending set to leap from millions of dollars per year in planning to billions per year once construction begins, those worries are now magnified.
The first 520-mile phase between San Francisco and Los Angeles, through the San Joaquin Valley, is expected to cost at least $43 billion over the next decade – and likely much more.
"We're rapidly approaching a time when I'm going to have to ask myself, 'Is (the rail authority) capable of delivering?' " said state Sen. Joe Simitian, D-Palo Alto, a frequent critic of the authority's management. "That remains a question mark in my mind."
The authority says it needs consultants because the scale of the project is bigger than the agency's staff can handle on its own.
"Through consultants, we can leverage a lot more experts rather than hire someone into a state job that we'll only need for a few months or years," said Jeffrey Barker, the authority's deputy executive director for communications. But Barker acknowledges it's a challenge to keep tabs on them all.
The California High-Speed Rail Authority was created by the state Legislature in 1996 to develop a high-speed train system. In its first decade, only twice did the agency's annual budget exceed $4 million a year – enough to employ a handful of staff, cover administrative expenses and hire consultants to do the heavy lifting.
That included a preliminary business plan at a tab of about $5.4 million between 1997 and 2000 and a statewide environmental assessment that totaled more than $17 million between 2000 and 2006.
Between 1997 and 2007, the authority received more than $32 million from the state's Public Transportation Account, which is fed by sales taxes on gasoline and diesel. About $11 million more came from other state transportation accounts. A little more than $4 million came from federal transportation trust funds.
Intensified planning over the past several years has ramped up the authority's spending dramatically. As construction approaches, the agency's budget rocketed from less than $5.2 million in 2005-06 to more than $220 million in the 2010-11 budget year that ended June 30.
The acceleration has been sharpest since California voters approved Proposition 1A in 2008. The bond measure provides up to $9.95 billion for construction of the statewide train system. Since Prop. 1A was approved, nearly $400 million in bond money has been allocated to the authority for its operations. The federal government also kicked in more than $144 million in 2010 and 2011.
Most of that continues to flow to consultants.
The authority's single largest current contract is with Parsons Brinckerhoff, an American subsidiary of English engineering and construction firm Balfour Beatty. Under its $199 million, seven-year deal, Parsons Brinckerhoff is managing the overall high-speed rail program on behalf of the authority. That includes overseeing regional engineering and environmental contractors - each of which is being paid tens of millions of dollars.
The authority has more than $800 million in contracts with consultants handling different agency functions.
Not all of the contracts are for engineering. There are multimillion-dollar contracts for video and animation production and for financial service
Pen-wide FTX keeps 6-52 Soldiers sharp
By Capt. Austin Liu
6-52 Air Defense Artillery Battalion
SUWON AIR BASE – They might have been sleep-deprived and drenched in mud and sweat, but Soldiers from the 6th Battalion, 52nd Air Defense Artillery Battalion concluded a week-long field training exercise with a renewed sense of pride and confidence in their equipment, their comrades-in-arms, and most importantly themselves, officials said.
The comprehensive air defense artillery field training exercise, which took place from May 2-6 across the Peninsula, put to test the air defenders’ ability to not only fulfill their primary mission of protecting the sky over South Korea, but also to execute combined force protection and logistic resupply missions with their adjacent U.S. and Republic of Korea units on the battlefield.
The exercise included realistic scenarios that prepared the Iron Horse Soldiers mentally and physically to fight, survive, and prevail if engaged in a prolonged armed conflict on the Korean Peninsula.
On Suwon Air Base, Pfc. Harley Farnsworth and the rest of his crew from B Battery, 6-52 Air Defense Artillery Battalion, received the order to reload one of the PATRIOT launching stations. The crews immediately dashed toward the launcher, their ballistic armor plates heavy upon them as they went through the steps to reload the spent canister utilizing the guided missile transport.
Farnsworth and his crew understood perfectly well that tens of thousands of innocent lives depend on whether they can successfully accomplish their missions in a timely manner.
“We are the ones who keep the air battle going and the missiles firing,” said Farnsworth.
His crews successfully passed the missile reload evaluation during the exercise.
Just as the missile reload evaluation was winding down, a few miles down the road, another group of Soldiers were being tested on their skill to conduct aerial missile resupply missions.
Near the Suwon Air Base flight line, Soldiers from Alpha Company, 602nd Aviation Support Battalion, along with personnel from Foxtrot Company, 6-52 Air Defense Artillery Battalion, eagerly awaited the arrival of the CH-47D flying in from USAG Humphreys.
The helicopter, assigned to 3-2 General Support Aviation Battalion (GSAB), will be slinging PATRIOT missile canisters across treacherous terrain to a distant firing unit running dangerously low on ammunition.
“This training [aerial resupply] validates the battalion’s ability to coordinate for air support from 3-2 GSAB and resupply its fire units even during degraded road condition” said, 1st Lt. Stephen Bonner of Foxtrot Company, 6-52 ADA Battalion and one of the primary coordinators for the sling load operation. “The more times we do training such as this, the more comfortable we will be when we have to conduct aerial resupply missions during wartime,” he added.
Aside from air defense operations, the exercise also challenged U.S. as well as ROK Soldiers and Airmen stationed at Suwon Air Base on their ability to conduct combined base defense and force protection operations.
Deep within Republic of Korea’s 10th Tactical Fighter Wing Command and Control bunker, the U.S. liaison officer was notified that a simulated breach was detected near one of 6-52nd Air Defense Artillery Battalion’s facilities.
Within minutes, two Republic of Korea Air Force K200 infantry fighting vehicles loaded with ROK soldiers arrived at the site of the potential infiltration.
Staff Sgt. James Forst, assigned to Foxtrot Company, 6-52 Air Defense Artillery Battalion, with the help of an interpreter explained the unfolding situation to the ROK security forces, as forces from both nations began pulling security around the breach and executed a combined cordon and search operation.
Forst, a New York native and the NCOIC in charge of Fox Company’s quick reaction force, said he thought that “the training was a great opportunity for U.S. Soldiers to learn how to work with their ROK counterparts.”
Republic of Korea Air Force Maj. Kang Bong-Suk, the chief of Suwon Airbase Ground Operation Center, who observed the training, also shared similar sentiment.
The exercise concluded with a combined chemical-biological-radiological-nuclear, (known as CBRN) decontamination operation of personnel and vehicles.
Bravo Battery, 6-52 Air Defense Artillery Battalion, was called upon to conduct operational decontamination for a U.S. unit as well as a ROK unit returning to Suwon Air Base from a possibly CBRN contaminated area.
As rows of U.S. and ROK Soldiers and Airmen passed through the decontamination stations and began protective gear exchange, the similarities between the gear and procedures of the two allied nations helped to alleviate the communication barrier between the two nations.
Sgt. Michael Camp, one of the primary trainers for the decontamination exercise said, “The intent of the operation is to familiarize both parties involved of each other’s gear, equipment, and tactics, techniques, and procedures.”
