Local Assistance Division - Qualification Program

LTAP logo

In an effort to continue to help localities successfully administer transportation projects, VDOT is working to establish a qualification program.

As a Federal Highway Administration Every Day Counts (EDC) supported program, the qualification program will provide a consistent method of determining a locality’s readiness to administer federal projects.

The program includes a set series of on-line and classroom training sessions that provide a high level overview of the federal requirements for locally administered projects.

The program will focus on federally funded projects and all localities that administer a federal project will be required to have at least one full-time staff member that has completed the qualification program before the end of 2020.

Currently the Qualification Program is only open to local governments and PDCs. It will be opened to consultants at a later date.
