The FAST-41 Data Management Guide provides a standard operating procedure for Permitting Council member agencies to implement the FAST-41 requirements related to establishing, maintaining, modifying, and completing FAST-41 covered project permitting timetables, and maintaining related required information on the Permitting Dashboard.  This Data Management Guide is intended to govern FAST-41 covered projects and is not used to manage entries for any other type of project on the Permitting Dashboard.  The current Data Management Guide became effective on July 1, 2022, and supersedes all previous iterations of the Data Management Guide.
