    Title: FHWA Major Project Financial Plans and Project Management 
    OMB Control #: 2125-XXXX.
    Background: Major projects are defined in section 106(h) of title 
23, United States Code (U.S.C.), as projects receiving Federal 
financial assistance with an estimated total cost of $500,000,000, or 
other projects as may be identified by the Secretary. Major projects 
are typically large, complex projects designed to address major highway 
needs and require the investment of significant financial resources. 
Project sponsors of major projects are required to submit a project 
management plan and an annual financial plan to FHWA.
    The preparation of the project management plan, as required by 23 
U.S.C. 106(h)(2), ensures that clearly defined roles, responsibilities, 
procedures and processes are in effect to provide timely information to 
the project decision makers to effectively manage the scope, costs, 
schedules, quality of, and the Federal requirements applicable to, the 
project. The project management plan serves as a guide for implementing 
the major project and documents assumptions and decisions regarding 
communication, management processes, execution and overall project 
    The preparation of the annual financial plan, as required by 23 
U.S.C. 106(h)(3), ensures that the necessary financial resources are 
identified, available, and monitored throughout the life of the 
project. An annual financial plan is a comprehensive document that 
reflects the project's scope, schedule, cost estimate, and funding 
structure to provide reasonable assurance that there will be sufficient 
funding available to implement and complete the entire project, or a 
fundable phase of the project, as planned.
Section 106(i) of title 23 requires project sponsors of other projects 
with an estimated total cost of $100,000,000 or more that is not 
covered by subsection (h) to prepare annual financial plans that are to 
be made available to the Secretary for review upon the request of the 
    Respondents: Approximately 200 project sponsors per year.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: Approximately 40 hours for 
the initial submittal of each plan and 20 hours for each update.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: Approximately 40 initial plans and 
160 plan updates are submitted each year. For a total of approximately, 
4,800 hours each year.
    Electronic Access: For access to the docket to read background 
documents or comments received, go to http://www.regulations.gov. 
Follow the online instructions for accessing the dockets.

     Authority: The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995; 44 U.S.C. 
Chapter 35, as amended; and 49 CFR 1.48.

    Issued on: November 17, 2014.
