CLARIFICATION ON SCOPE:

The team needs to be strong with traffic operations and traffic modeling. Railroads and managed lanes probably not so much. Regarding a certification, we are not looking for specific certification but mainly quantification and experience with operations and traffic.


Please note the new and updated guidelines, scoring and weights.

Thank you for your interest and response in performing engineering services for the above-captioned project of the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT).

We MAY use the "interview process" for this selection, which means CDOT MAY short-list three firms based on the Statement of Interest (SOI)/Work Plan (WP) submittal. Short-listed firms will be invited for a presentation/interview.

Please submit your proposal electronically through the CDOT portal  (https://supplierselfservice.dot.state.co.us/irj/portal)  or 7 hard copies  of your SOI/WP to accommodate the members of the board. Please refer to the SOI/WP instructions to ensure compliance with the page and exhibit limits for the SOI/WP sections of your submittal.

It is recommended that the SOI/WP be prepared in a 10 or 12 point font only. If a smaller font is used, it may reflect negatively on your scores.
