Engineering Architectural & Professional Services
Prior to any road or bridge being constructed, the department identifies the need for specialized work in order to complete IDOT's Multi-Modal Multi-Year Transportation Improvement Program. To accomplish the program without appreciably increasing the number of IDOT personnel or performing services for which the department does not have specialized expertise, the department seeks out the services of professional engineering, land surveying and architectural firms.
In order to work for the department in this capacity, firms must first seek prequalification in specialized categories. Once prequalified a firm is eligible to submit a statement of interest on advertised projects. If selected, the firm follows department rules and regulations until fulfillment of the contractual obligation.
