  • Abstract:
    This case study is one of a series of case studies that examine procurement approaches used to deliver Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) projects. ITS projects are often complex and leverage the latest technology in telecommunications, computers, software, sensing, and electronics. ITS technologies can be implemented as stand-alone projects, expansions of legacy systems, or incorporated as part of traditional roadway construction projects. Procurement of ITS projects with Federal aid funds can present challenges. Agencies must optimize project quality and cost while meeting applicable procurement regulations. In many cases, the requirements of ITS projects cannot be easily specified at the beginning of a project. This makes it difficult to establish realistic low bids and ensure product quality. The purpose of these reports is to provide examples of successful strategies that have been used to overcome challenges to ITS procurement contained within the traditional "Design-Bid-Build" project delivery approach. In this contracting technique, two independent contracts are used. The first contract is used to design the project and the second to construct the project. This technique is generally not suited for projects that involve advanced technologies, software engineering, and computer-based integration. In many such ITS projects, it is very difficult to clearly establish the line between design and construction as in traditional roadway construction projects. Many ITS projects are stand-alone in nature, and do not have to be procured under rules for construction. The installation of field devices and communications infrastructure often meets the definition of construction. However, if a project involves the development of software for the purpose of integrating field devices, then it does not meet this definition. The purpose of this series is to show that other procurement options are available under Federal-aid regulations for projects that do not meet the definition of construction. (11 p.)
