The following information establishes procedures for LPA Federal-Aid Acceptance Sampling and Testing (FAST) for all Federal-Aid projects awarded and administered by MoDOT. If a [[:Category:136 Local Public Agency (LPA) Policy|local public agency]] receives federal funds from MoDOT but does not specify, the guidelines in this Off-Systems Guide Schedule for Federal-Aid Acceptance Sampling and Testing (FAST) table should be followed. The acceptance sampling and testing procedures for other materials and construction processes are to be as shown in other articles in the Engineering Policy Guide.  
If a local public agency receives funds from MoDOT but does not use MoDOT QC/QA practices, the guidelines in the Off-Systems Guide Schedule for Federal-Aid Acceptance Sampling and Testing (FAST) table, below, should be followed.

Precast Items Gradation/Deleterious/Air Content/Slump Manufacture Plant Obtain plant certification when using MoDOT approved plant otherwise quality plan will need to be submitted.
Coating of Structural Steel6 Environmental Conditions/Surface Profile/Mil Thickness Jobsite One test/day as it applies for working being performed
1 When aggregate base shown in the contract is to be measured and paid for by area, convert the area to tons and follow the sampling frequency shown in this table. When converting, use the factor .06 tons/sq. yd./1 in. thickness of compacted base.
2 Gradation only for Type 4 and Stabilized Permeable Base.
3 One set of cylinders shall consist of 2 - 6” x 12” cylinder molds or 3 - 4” x 8” cylinder molds. To determine if ultimate (contractual) strength has been obtained, one set of cylinders must be tested and the average strength of all cylinders will determine ultimate strength of in place concrete.
4 Air and slump tests are required for each set of cylinders created.
5 Compressive strength test can be waived if the concrete to be placed in any one day is less than 3 C.Y. and an air, slump, and compressive strength test was performed the preceding day on that class of concrete.
6 Painting contractor is required to be part of certification program such as NACE, SSPC or equivalent.
