Alan M. Voorhees and Associates, now under contract to
the State Highway Department, and indirectly under contract to MARTA,
and proposed as a consultant to the Central Atlanta Study and to

Economic Opportunity Atlanta,

is going to be in a position of work-

ing on transportation problems in Atlanta under several different

contracts for several different agencies.

We should be very care-

ful that we are not paying more money for any particular job under
the several contracts than we would have paid had there been but

one contract.

MARTA has had PBTB under multiple-contracts simultaneously
with the Atlanta Region Metropolitan Planning Commission, and our
Counsel arranged the following wording to cover the situation men-
tioned above in connection with Voorhees:

"It is recognized that a separate contract concerning
engineering for this same project exists between the
Authority and the Engineer (therein designated "Con-
tractor") and that, in addition, a contract exists
between the Atlanta Region Metropolitan Planning Com-
mission and the’Engineer (therein designated "Contrac-—
tor") for updating a previous planning study concerning

the same project. Because of the inter-relationship
of the three contracts, the Engineer agrees it shall
report to the Authority its costs on each of these
contracts, computed on the reimbursement bases of
the terms of this Agreement, and Engineer further
agrees that the total compensation to the Engineer
under the three contracts shall be no more than that
which would obtain had the work all been performed
under the terms of this Agreement."

I refer this to you for review by your Legal Counsel.

Sincerely yours,

A L Aéiauk-

H. L. Stuart,
General Manager.
