The intent of the Contractor Schedule Toolkit (CST) is to assist contractors when creating a baseline schedule submission; primarily eliminating a need to create standardized coding, reporting, formatting and to assist in the general schedule set up only. The activity coding listed in this toolkit is based on current Accelerated Bridge Program requirements. (Statewide Road and Bridge projects may have additional activity code requirements. Please refer to your contract for additional guidance.)

The CST is being provided for informational purposes and is available for use as a schedule development guideline only. The CST may not reflect specific contract requirements. MassDOT does not guarantee the schedule information to be free from errors or inconsistencies, and the presence of such errors or inconsistencies does not relieve the Contractor from preparing schedule submittals in accordance with the Contract requirements and the specific requirements of the Engineer. MassDOT makes no representations or warranties of any kind, express or implied, about the accuracy, reliability, or completeness with respect to the CST or any of the information, services, or related content contained therein for any purpose.

MassDOT assumes no liability or responsibility for any damages (whether incurred directly or indirectly) or loss of any kind that might arise from the use of, misuse of, or the inability to use the information contained in the CST. MassDOT assumes no liability for improper or incorrect use of the CST. In choosing to use this CST, the Contractor expressly agrees that it will not submit any claims as a result of the information furnished herein, or use any of this information in the defense of any claim that the Contractor may choose to submit over the course of any MassDOT Contract.

MassDOT reserves the right to update, remove, or amend any of the information contained in this CST as needed without prior notice. For updates, please refer to the DOT website.
