What Type of Projects Can Utilize the Streamlined PID Process?

All STIP and locally-funded projects are required to use the Project Study Report-Project Development Support (PSR-PDS) format. 

If appropriate, a local agency may submit a request to the District Director asking for approval to use the Project Study Report (PSR) in lieu of the PSR-PDS. 

Given limited resources available to fund the development or review and approval of PIDs, the PSR should be reserved for projects where all support, right of way acquisition, and construction costs will be programmed or funded at once or within a STIP cycle.
