Preconstruction Project Delivery Plans are now required for all CDOT engineering capital construction projects that have not yet achieved the FIR milestone.  From Josh Laipply (September 4 Memo to Program and Resident Engineers): 

“This is a significant milestone for CDOT as we work towards instituting a more uniform, consistent and systematic approach to pre-construction project management that provides: 

  • Better project planning and consistent reporting
  • Better preparation and readiness for meetings and milestones
  • Proactive identification of possible issues, with mitigation strategies
  • Reliable project status data so we are well equipped to deliver “what we say when we say”
  • Better communication and coordination of issues and concerns with all stakeholders 
  • Better decision making; by identifying risks and understanding the impacts of changes, we can do a better job of making the best choice as well as the potential impacts”
