Abstract This is the 3rd update of the document originally published in September 1990 and updated in June 1996 and May 2003. It reflects current FTA project development, grants, and project management requirements. It incorporates the experience of FTAs Project Management Oversight Program research and technical assistance initiatives, and new or updated legislation and Circulars. Additional or expanded guidance is provided on safety and security considerations and certification process, project risk assessment and allocation, project controls, project delivery approaches, financing, real estate acquisition, dispute resolution, quality assurance/quality control, value engineering, public communications, and identifies additional sources of training and assistance. The Guidelines describe the transit capital project development process (with details on each phase along the continuum), general project management principles, and the application of those principles in the planning, design, construction/equipment procurement, and testing/start-up phases. While the emphasis may be seen as being put on Major Capital Projects and New Starts projects, information on the Small Starts program is also provided. Regardless, the principles and practice discussed have applicability to any capital transit project. Hyperlinks are provided to additional sources of requirements and guidance.
