Certifications and Findings In the Public Interest (FIPI)

Specifying Proprietary Items on CDOT Projects

Certifications

The Certification Process requires that the Residency Engineer (for project specific), Program Engineer (for regionwide use), or Branch Manager (for statewide use) prepare documentation (CDOT Form 1381) that shows 1). that no equally suitable alternative exists; or 2). that the item is essential for synchronization with existing transportation facilities. Once the documentation (CDOT Form 1381) is complete, it shall be submitted to the Standards and Specifications Engineer for certification approval. See Design Bulletin 2014-11 for further clarification.

Findings In the Public Interest

Finding in the Public Interest will require that the Residency Engineer (for project specific), Program Engineer (for regionwide use), or Branch Manager (for statewide use) prepare and submit documentation (CDOT Form 1381) that shows 1). that no other products exist that meet CDOT requirements as an “approved equal” by being tested and proved in the field; or 2). that such patented or proprietary item is used for research or will be used for a distinctive type of construction on relatively short sections of road for experimental purposes. Once submitted, the FIPI documentation (CDOT Form 1381) requires written approval by CDOT (for a specific project), or by the FHWA (if the FHWA determines that the project is a “Project of Division Interest [PODI]”, and for region- wide and statewide products). Additionally, when research is used as the justification for using a proprietary item it must be processed through the Research Branch of the Division of Transportation Development. See Design Bulletin 2014-11 for further clarification.
