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. The 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 decisionmakers. The Project Management Plan Guidance replaces the existing January 2009 guidance. Current guidance is over 7 years old and in need of clarification. This new guidance is less prescriptive, in light of an increased understanding of Project Management Plans by FHWA and Project Managers. Further, a recent PO 00000 Frm 00316 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 23485 DOT Office of Inspector General audit expressed the need for more clarity in the guidance on when to prepare Project Management Plan updates.1 Finally, while current guidance includes best practices for managing major projects, these practices are not 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. A copy of the Project Management Plan Guidance is available for download and public inspection under the docket number noted above at the Federal eRulemaking portal at: http:// www.regulations.gov. Authority: 23 U.S.C. 106(h); 49 CFR 1.85. Dated: May 15, 2017. Walter C. Waidelich, Jr., Acting Deputy Administrator, Federal Highway Administration.
