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.

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.
