Plans, specifications and estimates quality management

The Quality Management Office provides guidance and technical support for design-bid-build PS&E quality management. The guidance provided here supports documentation to enhance quality management initiatives for project activities within the design-bid-build environment.

This process is a value added initiative to establish statewide standards of quality and limit unnecessary project schedule and budget overruns, and to identify strategies to limit project risk using scalable project quality and constructability criteria.
