Evaluation of Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) Office of Program Delivery (OPD) Project Management Organization Structure in Comparison to Other States' DOT Practices (Tier 1): Best Management Practices (BMPs) of Design-Bid-Build Transportation Program-Project Delivery

The goal of this project is to identify and document the best management practices (BMPs) in state departments of transportation (DOTs) with regard to the structure of traditional (design-bid-build) project delivery. The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) Office of Program Delivery (OPD) discovered that currently, the overall project management organization is a weak matrix but it is desired that the organizational structure of GDOT OPD adapts from a weak matrix to a strong matrix with the Consultant Design Firms, and balanced matrices with the In-House Design Services and Local Governments.
