Section 5: Final Federal Program Inspection Guide – TxDOT Federal Program Projects

Schedule the final inspection with the AO project engineer and/or the assigned inspector. Additionally, invite the Engineer of Record (EOR) and other designers (TxDOT or consultant) to attend the final inspection to hear and discuss design issues encountered by the AO project management staff in order to improve future designs.

Once the field review is complete, prepare a final inspection report memo listing the design issues and the construction observations. Send the report memo to the AE, with a copy to the DCO and District Design Engineer. The EOR and associated designers are copied along with the AO project engineer or project manager.
