Course Description:

This course is designed to provide a basic overview of project management principles and explains the process for a right of way acquisition project in a step-by-step fashion that is applicable in most jurisdictions. This practical approach identifies the goal and product of each task; indicates how agencies typically procure services for tasks; and gives general times to allocate for task completion. The material highlights Uniform Act requirements, which are mandated for any project with federal assistance, and they also provide a sound path for non-federal projects. The training discusses the use of consultants to perform many of the tasks since most agency administrators would rely on contractors for title, appraisal, negotiations, and relocation efforts.
