Abstract:

In less than 30 years, environmental remediation has become a major industry in the United States and around the world. Over 300 environmental clean-up technologies have been developed for treatment of contaminated soil and groundwater Fiedler 1996, Kovalick 1995. Following scientific and societal recognition of the problems posed by pollution, extensive research has been conducted on the effectiveness of various remediation technologies. Much less investigation has been directed toward optimizing cost, schedule and other management aspects of environmental projects. This thesis research is a study into management of environmental remediation projects in the United States Air Force. Variables such as technology selection and contract type will be examined in relation to indicators like cost and schedule performance for a wide range of site clean-up projects.
