Task 172, FY 2004, Development of an AASHTO Design-Build Request-for-Proposals Specification Guide (University of Colorado at Boulder, Keith R. Molenaar, Ph.D.). The objective of this project was to develop a recommended AASHTO design-build guide that would assist contracting agencies in the design-build procurement process including the preparation of requests for qualifications and requests for proposals and the selection of the successful proposer. The guide covers all significant considerations in the procurement process up to the point of contract award. The guide provides a base of understanding for state DOTs and other transportation agencies that have limited or no experience with design-build projects. The principal focus of the guide will be on projects within the $10- to $100-million range. The advisory panel includes members of AASHTO's Joint Task Force on Design-Build and a member of the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA). The project is completed; the agency's final report was sent to AASHTO for disposition and is available here (1.2 MB Adobe PDF). (NCHRP Staff: C. F. Jencks)
