I would hesitate to characterize this in such broad language.

Here in New York, the building code requires the design professionals to
clearly define a program of testing and inspection for each project, and
to describe the requirements of the program in detail on the contract
documents.  The cost of the program is included in the overall cost of
construction for the project. 

Owners of major projects here don't have much choice in the matter.

However, I have read enough of Bill's posts to understand that his area
of the country may operate in a slightly different fashion.

Testing is in the owner's court. They can do the testing or not.

They will, if it's free. They won't, otherwise.
