The most cost effective, timely delivery of FHWA projects by local public agencies.
To streamline the Local Public Agency (LPA) delivery process of FHWA projects by certifying highly qualified LPA's that provide quality control that ensures FHWA requirements are met to deliver projects in a cost effective, timely manner through the collaboration of ODOT, FHWA and LPA partners.
The Certification Program provides a process through which qualified local public agencies can become "certified" in certain areas of federal-aid project delivery. This allows local public agencies to retain more approval authority and control at the local level when developing FHWA funded transportation projects.
The areas in which local agencies can become "certified" include:
- Consultant Selection
- Direct Appointment
- Informal Selection
- Formal Selection
- Advertising, Bid and Award
- Construction Contract Administration
Please refer to Local Agency Guidelines (LAG Manual)
for information and resources related to Certification.
