  • Abstract:
    The purpose of this Handbook is to provide guidelines for use by public transit agencies (Agencies) undertaking substantial construction

    projects, either for the first time or with little prior experience with construction project management. It provides a comprehensive introduction

    to construction project management, including the applicability of the principles of project management and of all phases of project

    development—from project initiation through planning, environmental clearance, real estate acquisition, design, construction, commissioning,

    and closeout.

    The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) maintains oversight of grant projects and assigns grant

    administration and management responsibility to the transit Agencies, who then are responsible

    for planning, managing, and implementing the federally-funded project. Agency project

    managers need handy tools for project management to make certain that projects are effectively

    contracted for, completed on time and within budget, and comply with all project specifications.

    This Handbook is intended to assist the Agency’s responsible project manager or lead person to

    undertake multi-million-dollar construction projects and manage the complexities of specifying,

    acquiring, and managing contracts for such projects through utilization of in-house and consultant

    resources.

    This Handbook complements the many circulars

    and publications available on the FTA Web site and through the National Transit Institute, in

    particular: FTA Lessons-Learned documents, Construction Project Management Guidelines,

    Best Practices Procurement Manual, Quality Assurance and Quality Control Guidelines, and

    the Manual for the National Transit Institute course entitled ―Management of Transit

    Construction Projects.‖ This Handbook is intended to be used as initial general guidance by

    transit Agencies and the FTA regional offices who may be contacted for help.

    This Handbook provides guidance similar to that in earlier documents but tailored more to

    Agencies that are constructing maintenance and operational facilities, intermodal terminals,

    park-and-ride stations, and other similar supporting transit facilities. Throughout the chapters,

    project management concepts are illustrated with the use of a hypothetical example, a typical

    project to plan, design, and build a new bus maintenance facility.
