Minnesota Department of Transportation
Delivering projects: the preconstruction phase
Project management (PM), in MN/DOT, comes under the office of Highway Program Implementation (HPI). HPI was established as a special office by the State Commissioner of Transportation and ranks near the top of the organization. HPI is a relatively small group consisting of the Office Director, an Assistant Director and a staff of four others. This group is the core of MN/DOT's PM effort. The office coordinates the department's entire storehouse of PM information and administers the system which collects, processes and reports all the project management data.
