HOW TO MEASURE RIGHT OF WAY MANPOWER NEEDS

AN EXTENSIVE STUDY WAS CONDUCTED ON THE RIGHT OF WAY DIVISION IN WASHINGTON STATE. AN ANALYSIS WAS MADE OF ALL TASKS PERFORMED BY RIGHT OF WAY PERSONNEL AT THE DISTRICT'S LEVEL. ANOTHER PHASE OF THE STUDY WAS DEVOTED TO REFINING THE BLOCKS OF TIME REQUIRED TO PERFORM EACH OF THE TASKS FOR WHICH RIGHT OF WAY IS RESPONSIBLE. ALL OF THE INFORMATION OBTAINED WAS CORRELATED AND A FORMAT ESTABLISHED TO PORTRAY THE FINDINGS IN SUCH A MANNER THAT THEY COULD BE UTILIZED TO FULL ADVANTAGE BY ALL LEVELS OF MANAGEMENT. THIS PERMITS ADJUSTMENTS IN PROJECT SCHEDULING DESIGNED TO ACHIEVE THE UTMOST IN EFFICIENCY IN MANPOWER UTILIZATION. THE DESIGNS FOR THE PROJECT ANALYSIS REPORT ARE PRESENTED. ONE IS AN ORIGINAL ESTIMATE AND THE OTHER A REVISED ESTIMATE FORM. THE TIME ALLOCATIONS FOR EACH ACTIVITY APPEARING ON THE ORIGINAL ESTIMATE DIFFER FROM THOSE SHOWN ON THE REVISED ESTIMATE ONLY TO THE EXTENT THAT THEY REPRESENT AVERAGES BY GROUP INSTEAD OF BY THE INDIVIDUAL ALLOCATIONS WHICH ARE POSSIBLE WHEN THE LOCATION HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED AND A CORRIDOR DEFINED. THE TRUE COST ESTIMATE FORM SETS FORTH THE JUST COMPENSATION ESTIMATED FOR EACH PARCEL AND PROVIDES THE ACCURATE BASIS POSSIBLE FOR REQUESTING THE FUNDS NEEDED FOR APPRAISING, REVIEWING AND ACQUISITION, INCLUDING ANTICIPATED CONDEMNATION COSTS BASED ON EXPERIENCE FACTORS, TOGETHER WITH REALISTIC MOVING COST ESTIMATES AND AN ESTIMATE OF THE AMOUNT REQUIRED TO PAY THE COST OF OWNERS EVALUATION ALLOWANCES. IT ALSO PROVIDES THE INFORMATION NECESSARY FOR ASSIGNING STAFF APPRAISERS AND/OR CONTRACTING THE SERVICES OF FEE APPRAISERS. IT DEVELOPS COMPARABLE SALES RELATED INFORMATION OF INVALUABLE ASSISTANCE TO REVIEW APPRAISERS AND, THE ESTIMATES OF JUST COMPENSATION. EXPERIENCE FACTORS WERE USED IN DEVELOPING THE MANPOWER REQUIREMENTS NEEDED TO PREPARE THE VARIOUS TYPES OF ESTIMATES FURNISHED BY RIGHT OF WAY PERSONNEL. THE STATE IS CONFIDENT THAT THE NEW SYSTEM WILL MEASURE MANPOWER NEEDS WITH MUCH GREATER ACCURACY.
