FHWA Contract Administration Core Curriculum  (FHWA-NHI-134077)

In-Person, Instructor Led Training - 2 Days,  $100 per person.  Seats still available in the Moses Lake session:
Thu & Fri, August 3-4, 2023  (Best Western Hotel, 3000 W Marina Dr, MOSES LAKE WA 98837) #03244

The training was developed to explain basic Federal-aid requirements; promote awareness of FHWA policy; facilitate familiarity with the newly reorganized, revised, and expanded CACC manual; and allow supervised practice activities using the manual to find information.  By engaging in a variety of in-class exercises and case studies, participants become quite familiar with the CACC Manual and learn how to best use it as a daily resource.  A basic understanding of the background and structure of the Federal-aid Highway Program (FAHP) is required for participants attending this course.  Prior to attending class, all participants are expected to watch the Federal-aid Essentials video Stewardship and Oversight. This video is approximately 8.5-minutes long and can be accessed at:

Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:  Use the Contract Administration Core Curriculum Manual (CACC) and other FHWA resources in order to answer questions regarding program-level and project-level requirements on Federal Aid (FA) projects; Describe the impact program-level contract requirements have on individual FA projects; and Identify the contract requirements associated with administering FA projects for Federal and State entities at the pre-award, advertising and award, and post-award and constructions stages.  For questions:
