Florida Statutes require the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) to "adopt policies, rules, procedures, and standards which are necessary for the Department to function properly, including establishing accountability for all aspects of the Department's operations."
Policies of the Florida Department of Transportation are developed within a framework of federal and state statutes, laws and regulations and plans. This page has been designed to provide an explanation of the framework from which policies of the Florida Department of Transportation are developed. The links below provide access to many of the key parts of the framework divided into state and federal components.
