Special Report: Infrastructure Scenarios &
Their Impact on Engineering and Design Services
June 28, 2021

Study Overview
The American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) commissioned a study to better understand the impact that an enacted
infrastructure bill would have on the Engineering and Design Services industry. The study was conducted by Rockport Analytics, an
independent market and economic research firm using both publicly available data and proprietary analysis. The infrastructure
assessment utilizes an econometric model that was developed by Rockport Analytics for the ACEC Research Institute in creating the
2021-2025 Engineering Industry Forecast (March 2021). Rockport also utilized an input/output model to help translate the impact that
higher levels of economic output in A/E Services would have on jobs, wages, value-added, and taxes generated in the sector.
