NexLyte, Inc. – Telecom Engineering Consultants is pleased to have been selected as part of a multi-disciplined team for the five year Federal Transportation Administration’ (FTA) Project Management Oversight (PMO) assignment.
FTA’s Project Management Oversight is a continuous review and evaluation of grantee and FTA processes to ensure compliance with statutory, administrative, and regulatory requirements. The Office of Engineering, through the Regional Offices, performs oversight of grantee project management that focuses on the management of major investments (capital investment grants, rail modernization, etc.) in transit projects.
Oversight begins early in project implementation, usually at the time of preliminary engineering. PMO contractors, who monitor large caseloads, following guidelines established by FTA, supplement FTA technical staff to evaluate grantee project management and technical capacity and capability to successfully implement major transit projects.
They also monitor projects to determine whether they are progressing on time, within budget, and in accord with approved grantee plans and specifications. Other activities are also involved, such as design reviews, change order reviews, and value engineering.
