An update of the original document published in September 1990 to reflect new FTA planning and management requirements and the experience of FTA's Project Management Oversight, Financial Management Oversight, Construction Roundtable and Research Initiatives. Additional guidance is offered on topics including innovative project delivery approaches such as turnkey and design-build, project risk assessment and management, alternative project financing, joint development, project and financial control systems, dispute resolution approaches such as partnering, agency and community outreach, and quality assurance/quality control. The Guidelines describe the transit capital project development process, general project management principles, and the application of those principles in the various project phases: planning, preliminary engineering, final design, construction, testing and start-up, and revenue service.
