How to Maximize Value Through Contractor-Defined Additional Requested Elements
10:45 - 11:45 am, Wednesday, March 29, 2017, Minneapolis Convention Center, 1301 2nd Ave. S., Minneapolis, MN
Using a collaborative process with shortlisted proposers, CDOT successfully integrated project goals during procurement, improving project design and construction. CDOT incorporated innovative Contractor Defined Additional Requested Elements (AREs) into its best value procurement process to maximize operations of the I-25/
US 24 Interchange Design-Build Project. This collaborative procurement process (concurrent with completing extensive environmental permitting) resulted in effective Contractor Defined AREs and extensive ATC submittals, setting the groundwork for a strongly integrated project team.
