The Project Control System (PCS) is primarily a mainframe database used for project identification, STIP development and overall project tracking. It provides information on project location, scope, design alternatives, scheduling (limited), cost estimates and funding.
The system is a communication tool used among work units involved in project development and construction. It is also used by ODOT regions, managers and staff to communicate with the Oregon Transportation Commission, FHWA, legislators and the public about upcoming projects. The system interacts with Microsoft Project, TEAMS, Cash Flow and Legislative Reporting systems.
