List Of Acronym Data (LOAD)
Acronyms have become an increasingly prevalent part of western culture. The use of acronyms in almost all occupations operates as both a communications shorthand, and a way of separating the novices from the knowledgeable. Many acronyms, if used in a document in a word processor, will be set upon by the spell check, the red squiggly underline quickly pointing out the invader like antibodies attacking a bacteria. Sometimes an acronym is so powerful; it bursts out into general use in society. But usually, you will need a separate dictionary as an aid in comprehension for the uninitiated to most professions.

This list is an attempt to identify and explain those acronyms in particular use in Caltrans Local Assistance. Most have application in Caltrans generally, and some have legal tender in society at large. Many have originated outside of Caltrans and have been adopted.

If you are new to Caltrans, you need this list, and may need to know the ones shown in red as well as you do your own name, lest you be identified as a novice. This list is an individual effort and does not have any official approval from Caltrans at this time. That is both good and bad. It is bad, because in using it, you are relying on the author for accuracy (my liability is hereby limited). It is good because you may make a contribution to this list if you wish. If you find a nice juicy acronym in use in Caltrans Local Assistance that is not in this list (fat chance), send it to me and I will add it to the list and add your name next to it for credit (or blame). Also, if you disagree with anything in this list, let me know, and I will make corrections as appropriate.

It is written in word, and you may freely copy it to your own computer as you wish for easy reference (scan or copy from our web site). If you have been handed a copy at a Local Assistance Academy, and need to look something up, do so quietly, both as a courtesy to the rest of the class, and in order to conceal as much as possible your degree of naiveté.

A compiled list of acronyms encountered, mostly in relation to work at Caltrans. If you have comments or a choice selection you would like included, forward to, together with it’s source.
