VDOT solicits private-sector aid on development of advanced transportation-management systems

The Virginia Department of Transportation is seeking information from the private sector to develop and implement a procurement strategy for the operations and maintenance of five Transportation Operations Centers (TOC), related field communications and Intelligent Transportation System infrastructure across the Commonwealth.

VDOT’s goal is to increase TOC interoperability and efficiency, as well as emphasize a performance driven approach for TOC operations.

In coordination with the Office of Transportation Public-Private Partnerships, VDOT released a Request For Information (RFI) on Wednesday, January 18, 2012, seeking information and suggestions from the private sector to assist in the development of a formal procurement initiative.

VDOT expects a single respondent will be selected to operate all five TOCs and the agency will transition to a single Advanced Transportation Management Systems (ATMS) platform. The RFI informs potential private sector respondents of this opportunity and solicits private sector interest and innovation in the delivery of the project.

VDOT will conduct a webinar on Monday, February 6, 2012, at 2 p.m. eastern standard time to entertain questions from the private sector and provide clarifications on any portion of the RFI. RFI responses are due no later than Friday, February 17, 2012, at 5 p.m. eastern standard time.
