As part of efforts to improve the agency’s procurement process, DOT has established a working group composed of the agency’s fiscal affairs, engineering audit, legal, IT, and operational units. To speed up contract payments by at least 20 percent, DOT will require concurrent reviews by different units, allow invoice adjustments to follow initial payments to contractors, transition more of the payment process to computer-based systems, and develop a new contract payment management system.
