Program Project - The PPM is responsible for programming the project (following established procedures for programming SCDOT projects), to establish the Project Identification Number (Project ID) for SCDOT tracking and monitoring. The PPM must indicate that the project will be managed by an LPA by selecting the appropriate option when entering the project identifiers in the P2S system. Based on the proposed obligation date, notification is made to the Obligations Management Office to request authorization of the project funds through the FMIS system.

Any work accomplished prior to FHWA authorization of that particular phase of work is not eligible for federal-aid reimbursement.

LPA Procedures - Section A.6.
