Quality Assurance Program
The Oregon Department of Transportation’s Quality Assurance Program complies with Federal Highway Administration guidelines for a Quality Assurance program for construction projects on the National Highway System. The purpose of the program is to insure that quality materials and workmanship are used in the construction of transportation facilities. The program defines the responsibilities of the Contractor and ODOT in order to satisfy the needs of the program. This project is used for all construction projects administered by ODOT or its consultants.
ODOT’s QA Program consists of three separate and distinct sub-programs as illustrated below.

The regional Quality Assurance staff is responsible for verification testing and Independent Assurance Testing on all ODOT projects, regardless of contracting method. In addition to conducting materials testing, they are the primary resource for questions related to materials testing and administration of ODOT’s QA Program on construction projects.

All personnel responsible for performing and reporting on tests required on ODOT projects must be certified. This requirement applies to project personnel working as technicians for the State, Contractors, or Consultants. For information about what the certifications are, how to get certified, and who is currently certified, please visit our Technician Certification Program page.
