QBS Webinar Wrap Up

Newsletter Announcement Copy

The Chair of the ACEC Ohio Board, CK Satyapriya, set a goal for 2022-2023 to spread the word about the importance of Qualifications-Based Selection (QBS) in the engineering industry starting with our own members.  Because of this goal, ACEC Ohio hosted a QBS webinar on May 24, 2023 featuring Paul Chinowsky, Director of Analytics and Resilience at Resilient Analytics, and Professor at University of Colorado Boulder. The webinar was a one-hour session with over 80 registrants. Those that attended learned the results of the QBS Study from the ACEC Research Institute, along with details on the Ohio QBS law.

Professor Paul Chinowsky led the ACEC Research Institute in conducting a study on the benefits of QBS. The study found five key takeaways, which were discussed in the webinar.

Key Takeaways:

  • QBS Saves Money
  • QBS Saves Time
  • QBS Simplifies Complex Projects
  • QBS Promotes Innovation
  • QBS Drives Procurement

We urge our membership to bring forward any QBS Compliance questions to Beth Easterday, President of ACEC Ohio. You should email Beth at with all questions. We only know what our members tell us!

We are seeking testimonials from public authority. If you know a client is following QBS and is a great example of the successes of QBS, ask them for a testimonial and send them to us.
