ACEC has been collaborating with the AASHTO Technical Committee on Project Management on the development of a survey of A/E firms that work for State DOTs. The survey covers a wide range of procurement and contracting issues. AASHTO is the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials.
The mission of the AASHTO Committee on Design – Technical Committee on Project Management (TCPM) is to provide guidance to State DOTs on managing the development and construction of quality projects within scope, schedule, and budget. The TCPM is interested in current observations from ACEC members about DOT consultant contract procurement and project delivery practices.
The linked survey is based on an update of survey results published in the 2008 AASHTO Guide for Consultant Contracting, on which ACEC also collaborated. The TCPM is interested in responses from the broad transportation consultant community and recognizes that firms operating in multiple DOT jurisdictions may have different observations and concerns from different locations. They would like to get one representative response from each firm location, but it's up to each of you and your firms how you want to manage that.
Firm names and contact information will not be published with the survey results. The survey is open now and will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. It will close on October 30, 2020.
The survey responses will be shared with the State DOT members of the committee and with ACEC. Our hope is to identify some areas for coordinated improvement in DOT procurement practices, targeted both at the state level as well as nationally, where necessary. Thank you for your time and participation
