Improving the Delivery of Transportation Projects

File Attachment

The Inspector General testified on transportation project delivery under TEA−21 at a hearing before the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works. He advised that specific steps can be taken during reauthorization to improve management and oversight and facilitate the delivery of projects to taxpayers approximately on budget, on schedule, and free from fraud. The steps include: (1) refocusing FHWA's oversight to ensure that state programs operate effectively and projects of national significance are well managed; (2) promoting the use of proven project management tools; and (3) improving efforts to prevent fraud, waste, and abuse.
