Changes to the Project-Specific Special Provisions Process
The Project-Specific Special Provision review and approval process has changed!  Effective August 16, 2012, Technical Bulletin TSB09-02(B) was rescinded and replaced by TSB12-01(B).  The new Technical Bulletin rescinds the formal PSSP process and removes the requirement for submittal of the PSSP form as part of the PS&E Submittal package.
