McKinsey Offers Tool to Help Explore Infrastructure Spending

The recent bipartisan infrastructure bill was massive, allocating $1.2 trillion to a wide variety of projects. To help people find the work they’re interested in, McKinsey has released a new free tool.

McKinsey, the consulting firm, has released a new tool to help people explore the massive number of programs and dollars included in the recent bipartisan infrastructure bill.

The free online tool, called the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Navigator, is an interactive wheel filled with dots, where the outside of the wheel represents the current year and the innermost region represents 2027. The color-coded dots represent deadlines for programs and spending on the various projects included in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA).

The tool also contains filters to help those in the public sector — or those in the private sector interested in performing the work funded by the IIJA — narrow down projects. One could, for example, use the tool to display only competitive grants related to public transit.

The IIJA was an enormous bill, allocating $1.2 trillion in federal funding to a wide variety of programs ranging from environmental remediation to bridge repair to beefing up cybersecurity in state, local and tribal governments. A significant chunk of the money — about 39 percent of the funding available for states, according to one analysis — will be awarded in competitive grants.
