Summary of Changes Made in DOT Order 1100.63C, March 5, 2018
PURPOSE: To issue a revision to the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) section of the Department of Transportation (DOT) Organization Manual.
CANCELLATIONS: This Order cancels DOT Order 1100.63B, DOT Organization Manual, Federal Highway Administration, dated February 2, 1999, and subsequent changes 1 (2/22/2000) through 34 (8/15/2016).
REFERENCES: DOT Order 1320.16C, DOT Directives System, dated July 27, 2015.
EXPLANATION OF CHANGES: This change restructures and realigns functions within the Office of Infrastructure (HIF) to improve operations and to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of the Federal-aid highway program.The HIF's mission and functions have been revised to address the need to no longer have an office dedicated to Transportation Performance Management (TPM). Given the close relationship between TPM and asset management, the remaining functions in the Office of Transportation Performance Management will be consolidated and moved to the same office as asset management. As a result, HIF's office structure will change from four to three offices. Documented below is information addressing the organizational realignment and specific changes included in the FHWA section of the DOT Organization Manual:
The titles of two HIF offices will change:
(1) The Office of Asset Management, Pavements, and Construction is renamed the Office of Preconstruction, Construction, and Pavements. This office brings together teams responsible for engineering policies, standards and procedures, providing technical assistance, and leading innovative technology, design, preservation and rehabilitation of highway pavements; and the construction of highway pavements and bridges. This office also administers and provides program assistance on geometric design of Federal-aid highways, consultant services, utilities, value engineering, contract administration, and innovative contracting regarding the Federal-aid highway program.
(2) The Offices of Program Administration and Transportation Performance Management are realigned in the Office of Stewardship, Oversight, and Management. This office administers the Federal-aid highway program and provides assistance on eligibilities, legislative interpretation, risk-based stewardship and oversight, and major project oversight. This office also provides technical and program assistance for the management of pavements and other transportation assets, and provides leadership and expertise in managing highway infrastructure assets utilizing progressive policies and practices that facilitate transportation investment decisions. In addition, this office provides leadership, guidance, coordination, and development on the comprehensive aspects for performance management of the Federal-aid highway program to ensure consistency in philosophy and sustained implementation of performance elements across highway and other modal program areas.
The Director, Office of Program Administration is renamed Director, Office of Stewardship, Oversight, and Management.
