Research for AASHTO Standing Committee on Highways. Task 172. Recommended AASHTO Design-Build Procurement Guide

The objective of this project was to develop a recommended American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (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 departments of transportation (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).
