How the IPD Office Does Business...

Technical Assistance

By Request

The IPD Office includes experts in many aspects of program and project finance, procurement, and revenue generation who are available to provide information and assistance. The mechanism for providing technical assistance varies according to the nature of the request. For example, assistance may come directly from the expert, while other times it may be offered through the FHWA IPD Academy. Additionally, we have designated Primary Technical Assistance Contacts (PTACs) to coordinate assistance for the North, West and South Director Field Services (DFS) Regions. Please direct your questions to your designated PTAC. Your PTAC will coordinate with the entire team of IPD experts to provide you a response.

Opportunity Projects and Opportunity States

The IPD Office has established pilot programs to (1) assist projects that have yet to select a financing, tolling, pricing, procurement and/or contracting strategy, and (2) assist States poised to make major advances in adopting innovative strategies for overcoming funding constraints in the delivery of transportation services. Lessons learned will be drawn from these programs and provided to the broader community. Each program will focus on a limited number of opportunities in their first year.

Critical Project Review

For projects with innovative elements that run into legislative or regulatory difficulties, the IPD Office can provide the Critical Project Review process. For such projects, the office will convene, on an ad-hoc basis, experts from throughout the Department to help move such projects forward. As with the Opportunity Project and Opportunity State initiatives, lessons learned are provided to the larger community.
