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.

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).
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 understands our duty to provide accessibility for users of our services, programs and facilities, including those who have disabilities. FDOT's ADA/Accessibility Program is managed by the statewide ADA Coordinator in Tallahassee and implemented by District ADA coordinators and project managers throughout the seven FDOT Districts and Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise. The Department provides ADA guidance, tools and resources to be used for improving accessibility on our transportation system.
The Project Management Resource Page contains the growing Project Management Guide as well as links to related tools, references, and training (including the Project Management Webinar Series).
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 created through the Design Scope of Services Tool), the Staff Hour Forms and the Staff Hour Estimation Guidelines (MS Excel spreadsheets).
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.
