Mr. Ralph Cutié is the Division Director of the Facilities Management and Project Administration Division under MDAD’s Facilities Management Directorate.  The primary mission of this Division is the establishment and execution of project development, contracting and control mechanisms to ensure the timely completion of the projects implemented by the various divisions within the Facilities Management Directorate.  The Division is also responsible for the oversight and monitoring of the projects within the Facilities Management Directorate to ensure their timely implementation and for various projects implemented under MDAD’s Reserve Maintenance Fund.

Mr. Cutie is a 23-year County veteran with more than 25 years of experience in the fields of project control, scheduling, project management, construction contracting and construction claims administration.  He began his County career in 1990 with the Miami-Dade Transit Department serving as a Cost and Scheduling Specialist and later in progressively responsible positions as the Manager of MDT’s Engineering Cost and Scheduling Section and, ultimately, as Chief of MDT’s Project Control Division.  Mr. Cutié worked extensively on various MDT projects of significance including the $248 million Metromover Extension Project, the $88 million Metrorail Extension to the Palmetto Expressway and the $106 million Busway Extension to Florida City.  In 2006, Mr. Cutié transitioned to the Office of Capital Improvements (OCI) where he served as the Manager of Project Scheduling and Compliance for the County’s $2.9 billion Building Better Communities – General Obligation Bond (BBC-GOB) Program and where he also managed the County’s very successful Economic Stimulus Plan (ESP), Miscellaneous Construction Contract (MCC) and Construction Manager (CM) Training Programs.  In 2011, subsequent to OCI’s consolidation into the newly-established Internal Services Department (ISD), Mr. Cutié served as the Manager of Project Scheduling and Compliance in ISD’s Design and Construction Services Division where he was involved in numerous large ISD projects while continuing to manage the County’s ESP, MCC and CM Training Programs.  Also, during his tenure at OCI and ISD, Mr. Cutié, working collaboratively with the County Attorney’s Office and the County’s various capital departments, developed the Standard Construction Contract which was adopted by the Board of County Commissioners in November 2012 as the Standard Construction Contract for all non-MCC construction projects Countywide.  Mr. Cutié has also served as the County’s Corporate Representative during the resolution of various construction claims and as a hearing officer for numerous construction disputes.  
 
Mr. Cutié obtained his degree in Construction Management from Florida International University in 1989, possesses numerous certificates in scheduling, project management design-build and claims administration from the National Transit Institute and served as an instructor in the County’s Construction Manager Training Program specifically in the areas of project scheduling, project documentation and construction claims and disputes.
