Description

PREREQUISITE REQUIRED: (Read First)

A basic understanding of the background and structure of the Federal-aid Highway Program (FAHP) is required for participants attending this course. Participants who are new to administering Federal-aid contracts should take NHI introductory course (NHI 310110 Federal-Aid 101) to the Federal-aid Highway Program before attending the CACC course. All participants are expected to watch the Federal-aid Essentials video Stewardship and Oversight. This video is approximately 8.5-minutes long and can be accessed at www.fhwa.dot.gov/federal-aidessentials/.

More than 10,000 Federal-aid construction contracts are authorized by FHWA each year. Those contracts are subsequently administered by State departments of transportation and local public agencies that may not be familiar with FHWA’s complex requirements for construction contracts. Recent FHWA program reviews of projects administered by local public agencies indicated that contract administration is a continuing high-risk area that needs additional focus.

Therefore, a newly revised, 2-day instructor-led training course was developed in concert with updates and revisions to the Contract Administration Core Curriculum (CACC) Manual (revised October 2014). The training was developed to explain basic Federal-aid requirements; promote awareness of FHWA policy; facilitate familiarity with the newly reorganized, revised, and expanded CACC manual; and allow supervised practice activities using the manual to find information. By engaging in a variety of in-class exercises and case studies, participants become quite familiar with the CACC Manual and learn how to best use it as a daily resource.

Prior to attending class, all participants are expected to watch the Federal-aid Essentials video Stewardship and Oversight. This video is approximately 8.5-minutes long and can be accessed at www.fhwa.dot.gov/federal-aidessentials/.
