Construction Manager/General Contractor (CMGC) Program

The Construction Manager/General Contractor (CMGC) Program is an innovative delivery method that allows Caltrans to engage a construction manager to provide input during the design process. Caltrans and the construction manager agree on a price for construction of the project, and the construction manager becomes the general contractor.

You will find various documents developed by Caltrans to implement CMGC on this webpage. These documents are subject to modification.
