COURSE DESCRIPTION:

The Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) responsibilities for construction project and program oversight has changed considerably throughout the years. Today, the FHWA field engineers are typically involved in a diverse array of issues that were not common in construction projects of decades past. Changes in legislation, declines in staffing resources and expertise, and increased complexity of the Federal-aid construction program have all had an impact on how the FHWA conducts construction program management and oversight. Today's FHWA field engineers must have a more focused and programmatic approach in fulfilling construction stewardship and oversight responsibilities.

This 2-day training workshop highlights the FHWA roles and resources to assist the State in delivering a quality construction program. The training will assist the FHWA field engineers in maintaining and improving technical competence and in selecting a balanced program of construction management techniques.

The workshop uses the "Construction Program Management and Inspection Guide" as instructional material. While the workshop is focused primarily at FHWA's staff and FHWA oversight activities, participation by State partners and other relevant entities is highly encouraged to further educate and train Federal Aide partners to "act on FHWA's behalf in line with the Divisions/State DOT Stewardship Agreement.

OUTCOMES:

Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Manage and oversee Federal-aid construction programs.

TARGET AUDIENCE:

This training is targeted at FHWA Division field engineers and State agencies, and will provide staff with the background and knowledge they need for managing and overseeing their Federal-aid construction programs. The training is geared towards the new FHWA generalist employee but is also intended as a refresher for the veteran FHWA engineer.
