E7:   Revision of FTA’s Quality Management System Guidelines - Rick Simon – (All)

Under contract to the Federal Transit Administration, Urban Engineers has revised the FTA’s Quality Management System Guidelines. These Guidelines provide a resource for transit authorities and others undertaking capital projects. The FTA requires grantees undertaking major capital programs to prepare a Project Management Plan (PMP) that includes a Quality Plan. Even for those projects not considered major, a Quality Plan can be a useful tool for guiding activities to assure project quality.  These revised Guidelines provide a Grantee with assistance in establishing a Quality Management System for their entire organization.
