  • DDC’s Opportunity Academy Course Book. DDC partnered with the New York City School Construction Authority (SCA) and LaGuardia Community College (LAGCC) to establish, Opportunity Academy (OA), which was a workforce development course for public construction project payment and change order processes that are some of the functions performed by construction office administrators (OA Workforce Development Course). DDC’s 2017-2018 OA Workforce Development Course Book contains contextual and specific information for the New York City public works program beginning with the City’s capital planning, budgeting and finance processes, the various payment processes and the construction management processes, which may be useful for built environment researchers. This course book is available for background research purposes here.
