FHWA Consultant Services Webinar

FHWA will be conducting identical webinar sessions on Thursday, March 22 and Tuesday, March 27 from 10am to 12noon (PST).  These webinars will be focused on the updated guidance related to the procurement, management, and administration of engineering and design related consultant services issued in July 2011.

The intent of these webinars is to provide FHWA, State DOTs, local public agencies, the consultant community, and the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) community with an informative session on key Federal requirements related to procurement, management, audits, negotiation, and contract administration which are discussed in the guidance. The webinar will not separately discuss each question and answer (Q&A). Rather, this webinar will generally highlight clarifications that were made to the Q&As in 2011.
