Value Engineering

Revised: June 18, 2024

Value Engineering (VE) is a systemic, independent, multidisciplinary team review process used to analyze projects and provide recommendations for improving the value and quality of the project; providing the needed functions safely, reliably, efficiently, and at the lowest overall cost; and reducing the time to complete the project.

It is the responsibility of the TDOT VE Office to identify projects that meet the selection criteria and to ensure that VE analyses are conducted correctly. For more information on the VE Program, see Chapter 1 RDG - PDN.pdf.
