WASHINGTON (CN) – The Federal Transit Administration plans to revise its project management oversight requirements to add project management rules. According to an FTA notice, having project management rules for rail and other big money projects is meant to “ensure integrity and accountability” regarding construction grants.
The agency seeks input from project sponsors, the industry, other stakeholders, and the public on a number of subjects.
According to the agency, the new rules would be to more clearly identify necessary project management skills needed to be demonstrated by project sponsors for all rail projects, and to add requirements that would apply only to the more complex major capital projects, and to distinguish project characteristics that would require documentation of project plans and implementation strategies in a project management plan, as well as the use of the FTA’s Project Management Oversight Contractors.
