Project Management

Picture of a Florida Roadway

Project Management is the application of knowledge, skills, tools and techniques to project activities to meet or exceed stakeholder needs and expectations for the project. The Project Management Section is responsible for coordinating with all offices under the Office of Design and throughout the Department to provide tools necessary to deliver quality projects on schedule, on budget. We develop and implement consistent and efficient Project Management practices for the delivery of safe transportation projects in Florida. Our mission is to preserve and improve the Florida Transportation System through consistent and efficient use of Project Management tools and Practices. We often hire Consultant Project Managers to help deliver the transportation Work Program as well.

Consultant Evaluation

 

The Department contracts with consultants to provide a variety of services. The Consultant Evaluation Process provides the Department with a means of evaluating the work performance of those consultants. For all professional services contracts, the consultant's work performance for each advertised major type of work must be evaluated by the Department's project manager. The consultant for each contract will be evaluated in the following areas: Schedule, Management, Quality& Constructability (for those contracts that produce construction plans).

 

 

Actual evaluations are conducted in the FDOT Consultant Evaluation (CE) internal application. A valid FDOT Login must be acquired prior to using this system.

 

 

The Department's Procedure Number 375-030-007 prescribes the process  for evaluating and reporting Professional Services Consultant work performance.
 

 

Errors and Omissions (E&O)

 

The Department employs professional consulting engineers to provide design engineering and construction engineering and inspection services. While consultants are accountable for the technical accuracy and quality of their work, consultant-prepared construction plans and contract documents may contain errors or omissions; as a result, cost and time overruns may occur on a construction project. Cost and time overruns may also occur on a construction project because of a breach of the consultant CEI contract.


The Department’s Procedure Number 375-020-010 prescribes the process to identify and investigate Errors and Omissions by Design consultants and CEI consultants.


Districts track E&O resolution of E&O issues using the Resolution Tracking Module (RTM) of ProjectSuite Enterprise Edition (PSEE), which is an internal FDOT application. Districts have Errors and Omissions Liaison Contacts to assist with E&O issues. See the list below.

 
   

Project Management Handbook

 

The PM handbook provides guidelines and recommended practices for the Project Manager (PM), both FDOT and consultant. A comprehensive resource, it covers FDOT project phases from planning to maintenance. In it are numerous links to references where users may obtain further information on FDOT project development and implementation processes.
 

 

Standard Scope of Services and Staff Hour Estimation Guidelines

 

Detailed descriptions of the work efforts (Activities and Tasks) for uniform and consistent project scoping and a basis or range of staff hours required to complete every project task. The Guidelines consist of the Scope of Services files (MS Word documents), the Staff Hour Forms and the Staff Hour Estimation Basis (MS Excel spreadsheets).

 

 

P.E. Training Program

 

The Professional Engineer (P.E.) Training Program is the Department's premier instructional opportunity for graduate engineers, leading to professional registration and a career path in the exciting world of transportation engineering. The four-year, two-phase training program encompasses all aspects of the Department's operations and prepares the trainee for a role in organizational leadership.
