All local entities are required to have an individual qualified by TxDOT in Local Government Project Procedures assigned to each project being performed through an Advanced Funding Agreement (AFA). Through its Local Government Project Procedures (LGPP) Qualification Program, TxDOT offers a course that trains and qualifies individuals to work on these projects. Anyone working directly on or overseeing local government projects (including senior managers, project managers, consultants, and local government employees) is encouraged to complete this training. Starting July 1, 2016, TxDOT will require all "qualified" persons to successfully complete the LGPP qualification course at least once every three years.

The class takes a total of 12 hours and covers several topics:

  • Introduction to the qualification program
  • Applicable federal and state laws and regulations
  • Typical TxDOT/local government contract terms
  • The project development process (contract execution through project close-out)
  • Available tools and resources

NOTE:  Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, LGP101 is being taught in a virtual classroom using the WebEx training platform. To make the most of our virtual training experience and to encourage participation and engagement, participants must have a reliable internet connection, the use of a computer or smartphone, audio-enabled settings or headphones and access to a computer or phone camera.
