FY 2007 Annual Federal-aid Value Engineering Summary Report

The following table compiles the data traditionally collected by the FHWA to summarized successes and achievements in the VE program. As part of this year's Summary Report, additional information was collected regarding the States' best practices and successful studies completed during the integration of VE in their Federal-aid program. The FY 2007 report includes for the first time data connecting the recommendations approved through VE studies and implemented VECPs to the benefits provided to the various functions and components of the projects that were studied.
