Overview

The LAG Manual is updated as needed and the date of the most current chapter is recorded in the footer of the document.  Please refer to this website for the most current chapter.
   
As depicted within the Table of Contents, the LAG Manual is divided into three sections:
  • Section A -- Contains an introduction of certification and provides basic related information for local agencies
  • Section B -- Outlines project delivery information for non-certified local agencies, generally reflecting ODOT's current practices
  • Section C -- Depicts basic project delivery requirements for conditionally certified, or certified local agencies
 
Sections B and C are arranged chronologically, according to six phases of project delivery. Note, Phases II, III and IV are connected together as illustrated in the Table of Contents, because the activities within each of those three phases may overlap and extend into later phases. Refer to individual chapters for more details.
