Environment & resource planning
This guide is primarily aimed to assist state highway project and contract managers and their contractors and consultants on the requirements of an ESMP. The guide sets out the framework for integrating an environmental management system with the overall contract quality system and with the multitude of sub management plans that are required to ensure steps are in place to meet our legal obligations and manage risk. For additional guidance on bridge maintenance contracts, see A methodology for identifying environmental risks for bridge maintenance.
