The New Jersey Department of Transportation's (NJDOT) Capital Project Delivery (CPD) web site provides guidance, information on procedures and up-to-date documents used to support delivery of capital projects. The CPD web site is the primary source of this information and is easily accessible.

Types of available content are:site content graphic

  • Phase Summaries give an overview of the requirements to move a project through a phase, such as Concept Development or Preliminary Engineering. A summary includes a brief description of the high-level objectives for that phase. Access to more detailed information, such as diagrams, flow charts and guidance documents can also be found on these pages.

  • Process Summaries give an overview of a particular process area such as Quality Management or Scope Management, and include a brief description of high-level objectives of that process. Access to more detailed information such as flow charts and guidance documents can also be found on these pages.

  • Flow Charts show how a phase or a process works across the entire organization. Activities performed in the execution of the phase or process, such as the creation of a formal scope statement, are shown in the flow chart. The logic of how one activity leads to the next is shown with arrows as dependencies and sometimes a decision symbol for more than one direction of flow. Top Down Flow Charts show a simplified flow of the phase or process and can be followed from the "top down" or from beginning to end. Swim Lane Flow Charts group the activities by organization or role allowing for easy identification of responsibility for particular activities. Activities on the Swim Lane Flow Charts are linked to Process Activity Description pages which, if selected, will open details on a particular activity.

  • Diagrams show how components of a phase or process relate to each other. Network diagrams are similar to flow charts and show how formal work activities are related. They are developed at a detailed level, and used as packages of work to be managed separately. Work Breakdown Structure diagrams show the products of a phase or process and how they relate to each other. A Work Breakdown Structure diagram shows how individual products may be grouped together to create a top level product such as the Concept Development Report.

  • Activity Descriptions contain activity descriptions, predecessor activities, successor activities, responsible roles, templates, examples, forms, and guidelines. They link to actual documents, such as procedures and forms. Select a particular activity from the flow chart to go to its Process Activity Description page, and then move back and forth between a Process Activity Description page and its respective Swim Lane Flow Chart.

  • Guidance documents describe work performance in detail. Some documents contain steps that are mandatory but most are used for guidance. Guidance documents are typically in PDF format, so the content cannot be changed, but can be viewed and printed. Links to guidance documents will be included on the Phase and Process Summary pages and on the Guidance page.

  • Templates which are documents that can be downloaded by users and used as a basis for a report or as a form to be completed. Templates are usually in RTF or XML format so that any user can access and use these files without any specialized software.
Ways to use the site:
  • Start with a Phase Summary or Process Summary page and identify the process link for a description and the links to flow charts and guidance documents. Access any of the listed guidance or flowcharts, showing how the process works across the organization.

  • Choose a guidance document on the Guidance page from a list of published documents grouped by phase or process area.

  • Enter words in the search field for a list about delivering capital projects.
