Certification Guidance and Forms

The Oregon Department of Transportation Certification Program issues policies and guidance for certified local public agencies, or LPAs. This guidance is primarily housed in the Local Agency Guidelines, or LAG, Manual. The manual provides guidance to help LPAs access Federal Highway Administration funding for local transportation-related projects through the Federal-aid Highway Program. Additionally, ODOT issues bulletins to supplement LAG Manual guidance as needed.

Specifications Templates and Resources

Generally, Certified LPAs are required to use the Oregon Standard Specifications for Construction on their federally-funded projects. The General Conditions found in the section 00100 of the Oregon Standard Specifications must be modified for use by Certified LPAs and approved by ODOT. A committee of ODOT and American Public Works Association members developed a template as a starting point for certified LPAs. Most recently, ODOT consulted with Oregon Department of Justice and the Certification User Group Standards Subcommittee in the development of the 2021 update.
