USDOT Project Delivery Center of Excellence

Access to Project Delivery Center of Excellence at the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Volpe Center added to PMWL

10 August 2023 – Washington, DC, USA – New access to a valuable set of resources related to planning and managing transportation programs and projects has been added to the PM World Library.  The resource is titled “USDOT Project Delivery Center of Excellence” and is the U.S. Department of Transportation’s new repository for project management related resources related to air, highway, rail and other transportation programs and projects.

In October 2022, the Biden-Harris Administration released its Action Plan for Accelerating Infrastructure in the United States, which outlined specific steps toward keeping projects on time, on task, and on budget.  One of the highlights of this plan included the announcement that USDOT would launch a Project Delivery Center of Excellence at the U.S. DOT Volpe Center to support and educate recipients of federal funds—transportation infrastructure project managers in state, Tribal, local, regional, and territorial governments— in delivering transportation infrastructure projects more efficiently and effectively from concept to completion. The Center of Excellence will serve as a central resource for innovative and effective practices and bring project managers together to enable knowledge sharing and peer-to-peer learning.

The U.S. DOT Volpe Center draws upon multimodal, multidisciplinary expertise to advance USDOT’s key priorities to improve the U.S. transportation system. The Project Delivery Center of Excellence will be uniquely informed by the U.S. DOT Volpe Center’s more than 50 years of advancing transportation innovation for the public good. The Project Delivery Center of Excellence will work in alignment with USDOT’s infrastructure priority, under the direction of the USDOT Strategic Advisor for Technical Assistance and Community Solutions, in providing these services and support USDOT leadership with oversight of Department-wide project delivery initiatives.

Among other things, the center will provide a central repository and disseminate national best practices and case studies in successful, innovative project development (planning, design, permitting, outreach, acquisition), project delivery (procurement and construction), and cost containment efforts.
