Synthesis of Information Related to Highways. Topic 54-02. Outsourcing Stormwater Best Management Practice Inspection & Maintenance Activities

The objective of this synthesis is to document state DOT current practices related to outsourcing stormwater BMP I&M compliance activities. The synthesis will focus on post-construction operations.   Information to be gathered includes (but is not limited to): ·       (1) Identification of state DOTs that partially or fully outsource BMP I&M activities and those that do not outsource these activities; (2) Contractor prequalification process; (3) Whether contract prequalification requirements are specified in contracts; ·       Established standards for assessing the contractor’s performance; (4) Established remedy process for when BMPs are not maintained to the agency’s standards; (5) Established standards for assessing the contractor’s performance; (6) Level of DOT oversight during contract administration; (7) Whether DOTs have performed a cost/benefit analysis for the outsourcing program; and (8) How costs are established.   Information will be gathered through a literature review, a survey of state DOTs, and follow-up interviews with selected agencies for the development of case examples. Information gaps and suggestions for research to address those gaps will be identified.
