ACTION: Final report. AGENCY: Section 6005 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA–LU) established the Surface Transportation Project Delivery Pilot Program, codified at 23 U.S.C. 327. To ensure compliance by each State participating in the Pilot Program, 23 U.S.C. 327(g) mandates semiannual audits during each of the first 2 years of State participation. This final report presents the findings from the fifth FHWA audit of the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) under the pilot program.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Electronic Access An electronic copy of this notice may be downloaded from the Office of the Federal Register’s home page at http:// www.archives.gov and the Government Printing Office’s Web site at http:// www.access.gpo.gov. Background Section 6005 of SAFETEA–LU (codified at 23 U.S.C. 327) established a pilot program to allow up to five States to assume the Secretary of Transportation’s responsibilities for environmental review, consultation, or other actions under any Federal environmental law pertaining to the review or approval of highway projects. In order to be selected for the pilot program, a State must submit an application to the Secretary. On June 29, 2007, Caltrans and FHWA entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that established the assignments to and assumptions of responsibility to Caltrans. Under the MOU, Caltrans assumed the majority of FHWA’s responsibilities under the National Environmental Policy Act, as well as the FHWA’s responsibilities under other Federal environmental laws for most highway projects in California. To ensure compliance by each State participating in the Pilot Program, 23 U.S.C. 327(g) requires the Secretary to conduct semiannual audits during each of the first 2 years of State participation; and annual audits during each subsequent year of State participation. The results of each audit must be presented in the form of an audit report and be made available for public comment. The FHWA solicited comments on the fifth audit report in a Federal Register Notice published on December 3, 2010, at 75 FR 75532. The FHWA received no comments. This notice provides the final draft of the fifth FHWA audit report for Caltrans under the pilot program. Authority: Section 6005 of Pub. L. 109–59; 23 U.S.C. 315 and 327; 49 CFR 1.48.

Surface Transportation Project Delivery Pilot Program Federal Highway Administration Audit of California Department of Transportation July 26–30, 2010 Overall Audit Opinion Based on the information reviewed, it is the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) audit team’s opinion that as of July 30, 2010, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) continued to make progress toward meeting all responsibilities assumed under the Surface Transportation Project Delivery Pilot Program (Pilot Program), as specified in the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) 1 with FHWA and in Caltrans’ Application for Assumption (Application). The FHWA commends Caltrans for its implementation of corrective actions in response to previous FHWA audit report findings. The FHWA also observed that Caltrans continued to identify and implement on a statewide Pilot Program basis best practices in use at individual Caltrans Districts (Districts). With the completion of FHWA’s fifth audit, Caltrans has now operated under the Pilot Program for 3 years. In compliance with the time specifications for the required audits, FHWA completed four semiannual audits in the first 2 years of State participation and has begun the annual audit cycle, beginning with this audit, which was completed July 30, 2010. Collectively, the FHWA audits have included on-site audits to 9 of the 12 Districts and to the Caltrans Regional Offices supporting the remaining 3 Districts. The audit team continues to identify significant differences across the Districts in terms of implementing Pilot Program policies, procedures, and responsibilities. Examples of such differences include: Resource availability and allocation; methods of implementation; methods of process evaluation and improvement; and levels of progress in meeting all assumed responsibilities. It is the audit team’s opinion that the highly decentralized nature of operations across Districts continues to be a major contributing factor to the variations observed in the Pilot Program. As a result of this organizational structure, clear, consistent, and ongoing oversight by Caltrans Headquarters (HQ) over Districts’ implementation and operation of the Pilot Program responsibilities is necessary. A robust oversight program will help foster the exchange of information and the sharing of best practices and resources between Districts and will put the entire organization in a better position to more fully implement all assumed responsibilities and to meet all Pilot Program commitments. Due to the multiyear timeframes associated with more complex and controversial projects, the full lifecycle of the environmental review aspect of project 1 Caltrans MOU between FHWA and Caltrans available at: http://environment.fhwa.dot.gov/ strmlng/safe_cdot_pilot.asp.
