The Highway Division currently uses Microsoft Project for Microsoft Office 365 and all schedule files submitted to us must be compatible with this program and submitted in this format*. The schedule templates below are Microsoft Project for Microsoft Office 365 templates. The sample PDF files illustrate the GANTT Chart format with which the Highway Division expects schedules to comply.
Designers shall submit design schedules to MassDOT in Microsoft Project and in PDF.
The durations established in these templates are expected to be followed closely. Any slippage must be justified in writing.
Additional Environmental permits and other Design and ROW activities added to the schedule must be properly linked together using Task Dependencies to maintain the Critical Path calculations.
*Designers may continue to use Microsoft Project 2010 schedule templates for projects scheduled to be advertised in FFY 2021.
