Local Administered Projects

Non-VDOT Administered Projects (NVAP):  Introduced July 1, 2018, NVAP is an interactive tool that gives local governments the ability to provide important updates during project construction through an easy-to-use SMART Portal data entry site. The use of this tool, and providing construction contract information, dates, and expenditures is effective for locally administered projects having an Award date of July 1, 2018 and beyond. This is a new requirement for local governments and is outlined in LAP Manual section - VDOT Databases. A NVAP Users Guide is also available to assist local government's use of the new tool along with a Locality Job Aid.
