Responsibilities include Construction Project Materials Certification, Materials Testing
& Inspection Certification program administration, and the Approved Products List.
The project materials Certification and Testing process verifies that materials
used to construct projects meet applicable specifications and ascertains
that the minimum requirements are fulfilled. We also develop and maintain the testing
forms and the Materials Manual, which contains the Department's Testing procedures
and Minimum Certification/Testing requirements.
The Materials Testing & Inspection Certification program,
includes maintaining the Program Manuals, providing guidance on the
requirements of the manual, develop and maintain the database of
certified equipment and personnel, and issue the certificates of completion
and training cards for everyone who has successfully completed training.
We gather input from field personnel, coordinate instructors, and
assist in development of training curriculum and assure security of
associated testing materials.
We maintain the Approved Products/Certified Suppliers list which is a
tabulation of materials that can be used by contractors on construction/maintenance
projects without furnishing a Certificate of Compliance.
