Value Management Office

NCDOT's Value Management Office ensures the department responsibly and efficiently uses resources and funding when building and improving North Carolina's transportation system.

The office oversees seven statewide programs that focus on streamlining operations, improving project quality and outcomes, reducing costs without compromising function and increasing the use of environmentally sound and energy-efficient practices and materials.

Although NCDOT uses these programs primarily with road and highway projects, projects related to all types of transportation contribute to the success of these programs.

To ensure they are viable for use in North Carolina's infrastructure, the Value Management Office also evaluates products that vendors, contractors and NCDOT staff would like to use and maintains a list of products that teams of experts have reviewed, vetted and approved for use.
