Background srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with PROPOSALS On September 10, 2009 (74 FR 46515), FTA issued an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) to start the process of revising its Project Management Oversight rule at 49 CFR Part 633. This Project Management rulemaking emphasizes a set of standards and principles for sound project management that will affect all FTA-funded fixed guideway capital projects and major capital projects. Specifically, FTA seeks to restructure the current Part 633 to incorporate the best practices in the transit industry with respect to reasonable project management performance measures. When final, this project management rule should articulate the criteria and skills expectations necessary to ensure a project sponsor’s successful implementation of a fixed guideway capital project, including a major capital project. Also, the new Part 633 will be updated to reflect oversight tools and methodologies that have been developed since the original rule went into effect. Initially, FTA established a sixty (60) day public comment period for its ANPRM, with a closing date of November 9, 2009. At the request of several interested parties, however, FTA has chosen to extend the comment period for two months and to host two Webinars for the purpose of answering questions about the ANPRM. II.

performance measures. When final, this project management rule should 
articulate the criteria and skills expectations necessary to ensure a 
project sponsor's successful implementation of a fixed guideway capital 
project, including a major capital project. Also, the new Part 633 will 
be updated to reflect oversight tools and methodologies that have been 
developed since the original rule went into effect. Initially, FTA 
established a sixty (60) day public comment period for its ANPRM, with
