Local Administered Project (LAP) Manual

LAP Manual Cover

The Local Administered Project Manual covers uniform practices for authorizing qualified Local Public Agencies (LPA) to manage core activities for Federal-aid funded projects.

Under Title 23 U.S.C. state transportation agencies are responsible for the administration of Federal-aid transportation projects. Title 23 U.S.C. does not recognize local entities as direct recipients of Federal-aid funds. Georgia DOT assumes the responsibilities of the Secretary of Transportation for all Federal-aid projects. GDOT stewardship includes the responsibility to assure local projects meet or exceed all applicable Federal and State laws, standards and requirements. The roles and responsibilities of the Federal Highway Administration-Georgia Division (FHWA), GDOT and Local Governments are defined in the LAP Manual.
