  1. What is the purpose of this Notice? The purpose of this Notice is to take the initial step in revising FHWA's delegations of authority to reorganize certain functions among the Office of Administration (HAD), the Office of the Chief Financial Officer (HCF), and the Office of Chief Counsel (HCC).

  2. What is the background information? FHWA reviewed the functions and organizational structure within HAD and HCF to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of its administrative and financial operations. This review identified the opportunity to make improvements in managing administrative and financial programs to include acquisitions, information technology, internal controls, and audit liaison functions. As a result, the Office of Acquisition Management will move, in its entirety, from HAD to HCF. The Management Programs and Analysis Division (HAIM-10) will be restructured with audit liaison, hotlines, delegations, directives, and other management programs transferred from HAD to HCF. The HAIM-10 responsibilities for the Freedom of Information Act program will be transferred to HCC. The privacy, information collections, records management, and other information services functions in HAIM-10 will be transferred to the Information Technology Division within HAD.

  3. What changes are being made? References to the authorities in the FHWA Delegations and Organization Manual, FHWA Order M1100.1A, Part 1, Delegations of Authority, delegated for Acquisition Management and for those responsibilities assigned to HAIM-10 that will transfer from HAD to HCF and HCC are being revised to allow the new organizational/reporting structure to become operational.
