DRAFT Project Quality Management Handbook, currently unavailable

The Department has been working to standardize and document Quality Management processes for State Highway projects.

A statewide team has prepared the Project Quality Management Handbook to provide a standard framework and definitions of quality activities on State Highway projects.  This Handbook provides guidance on implementing project quality activities in each project component regardless of funding source, Implementing Agency or who performs the work.

The DRAFT Project Quality Management Handbook has been circulated throughout the State including each of the Districts and the Department’s external partners, RTPAs and Self-Help County organizations. The statewide team is preparing the Final Draft for approval and distribution.

If you have questions, please contact Dave Casey by e-mail, or by phone at 916-653-1393.
