Late comments will be considered to the extent practicable. Background Major projects are defined in 23 U.S.C. 106(h) as projects receiving Federal financial assistance with an estimated total cost of $500,000,000, or other projects as may be identified by the Secretary. Major projects are typically large, complex projects designed to address major highway needs and require the investment of significant financial resources. The preparation of a Project Management Plan, as required by 23 U.S.C. 106(h), ensures successful project delivery and the maintenance of public trust, support, and confidence throughout the life of the project. Project Management Plans clearly define the responsibilities of the agency leadership and management team. Further, such plans document the procedures and processes to provide timely information to project decision makers. When finalized, the proposed Project Management Plan Guidance will replace the existing January 2009 Project Management Plan Guidance. Current guidance is over 7 years old and in need of clarification. This new, proposed guidance is less prescriptive, in light of an increased understanding of Project Management Plans by FHWA and Project Managers. Further, a recent DOT Office of Inspector General audit expressed the need for more clarity in the guidance on when Project Management Plan updates should be prepared.1 Finally, while current guidance includes best practices for managing major projects, these practices will not be included in the new guidance. Rather, best management practices will be developed as a separate resource to be shared with project sponsors and FHWA staff. Comments on the proposed Project Management Plan Guidance are welcome from any interested party, including Federal, State, and local agencies; industry groups; and the general public. A copy of the proposed Project Management Plan Guidance is available for download and public inspection under the docket number noted above at the Federal eRulemaking 1 FHWA Met Basic Requirements but can Strengthen Guidance and Controls for Financial and Project Management Plans, FHWA, Report No. ST– 2015–018 (Jan. 2015), available at https:// www.oig.dot.gov/library-item/32336.

The FHWA requests that commenters cite the page number of the Guidance for which each specific comment to the docket is concerned, to help make the FHWA’s docket comment review process more efficient. The FHWA will consider all comments received during the comment period prior to finalizing the Project Management Plan Guidance. Authority: 23 U.S.C. 106(h); 49 CFR 1.85. Issued on: October 31, 2016.
