Shant Boyajian advises public agencies on a wide range of innovative methods to procure and deliver the nation’s largest, most complex infrastructure projects. Clients have found tremendous value in his deep experience in public private partnership (P3) delivery methods, including revenue risk and availability payment models, pre-development agreements, and other forms of alternative delivery, such as construction manager/general contractor and design-build.
He is also one of the nation’s leading experts in the policy issues behind infrastructure strategy, having previously served as Senior Counsel to the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, where he lead the development of the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act – the largest infrastructure bill in U.S. history. Prior to his position in the Senate, Shant served as Counsel to the Subcommittee on Highways and Transit for the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, where he helped negotiate and draft the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) Act – which provided more than $105 billion in funding for surface transportation programs in fiscal years 2013 and 2014.
Earlier in his career, he served as a law clerk to the General Counsel’s Office at the U.S. Department of Energy, and as Legislative Aide to the Vice Chairman of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors in Loudoun County, Virginia.
