overall cost; improving the value and quality of the project; and 
reducing the time to complete the project. Applicable projects

NHS, that utilizes Federal-aid highway funding in any contract or 
phase; and other projects as defined in 23 CFR 627.5. 23 U.S.C. 
106(e)(4)(iv) and 23 CFR 627.7(3) require States to monitor, evaluates

analyses that are conducted and the recommendations implemented on
