CONSTRUCTION LEADERSHIP TEAM (CLT)
Charter & Operating Guidelines
(Charter revised January 1, 2013)
Authority: The Construction Leadership Team (CLT) is established under the Project Delivery Leadership Team (PDLT) Operational Notice PD-01, dated April 1, 2005. The CLT will have decision authority for the establishment of Department policies and procedures related to the implementation of the ODOT Construction Program.
Purpose: The CLT serves as the overall policy body for the Department’s Construction business line, which encompasses all activities necessary to take a project from contract award to final acceptance and payment for the project.
The CLT will routinely assess the effectiveness of the construction phase of projects and identify areas needing improvement. These areas will be prioritized and included in an annual work plan that will be used to track and report the progress of the CLT.
Membership: To accomplish this responsibility, CLT membership is comprised of key members from each region who are involved in various aspects of the construction phase. The committee is co-chaired by the State Construction and Materials Engineer and an Area Manager. Other members include the Contract Administration Engineer as well as individuals from each region, Local Program Group, the Bridge Delivery Unit and FHWA representative. Region representatives will distribute representation across both Area Manager positions as well as Project Managers. It will be the responsibility of each member to represent their region across the full range of construction activities. To maintain some consistency on the Team, members are expected to serve at least a two year term, after the initial two years, it will be up to the represented region to determine whether they change the representative or not.
