U.S. Department of Transportation Announces Request for Proposals for the Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment and Program Evaluation

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has released a solicitation for a full and open competition to procure services for non-personal, technical support services for the Connected Vehicle Pilot deployment and program evaluation.

The Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment program includes three phases: Phase 1: Concept Development Phase, Phase 2: Design/Build/Test (for which this solicitation will ascertain that the objectives of the program are met), and Phase 3: Maintain and Operate.

The three selected sites--ICF/Wyoming, New York City, and Tampa (THEA)--are in the Concept Development Phase. Upon successful completion of this first phase, the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) anticipates issuance of a site-specific cooperative agreement covering the second and third phases of the effort. The USDOT intends to select a contractor based on proposals received under Solicitation Number DTFH6116R00004.

As a result of this solicitation, FHWA will award an Indefinite-Delivery-Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) contract to meet the Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office's needs for technical evaluation support service of the Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment Program. This award will allow for task orders to be issued as either Time-and-Materials (T&M) and/or Firm-Fixed-Priced (FFP). The anticipated period of performance will not exceed 60 months.

Proposals are due by 4:00 PM on May 23, 2016.
