The Roadway Design Division Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) group has the responsibility of managing the QA review process in the design of roadway plans.  This group helps to ensure that all guidelines, standards, and instructional bulletins that relate to the design quality control are followed.  Format standards relating to the design and production of roadway plans are also checked. 

This group, located at TDOT Headquarters in Nashville, reviews the plans for all regions to help ensure consistency across the state.  The QA/QC process is applied to all projects designed in-house and by consultants.  This group also offers a review of projects that come through the TDOT Local Programs Office.
