FHWA seeks proposals for support services for Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment program

vehicle-to-vehicle-communicationThe U.S. Department of Transportation’s (USDOT) Federal Highway Administration is soliciting proposals for technical support services for the Connected Vehicle Pilot program deployment and evaluation.

The Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment program, which is administered through USDOT’s Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office, “seeks to combine connected vehicle and mobile device technologies in innovative and cost-effective ways” with the aim of improving mobility transportation, system productivity, safety and environmental impact.

Three pilot sites, including Wyoming, Tampa, and New York City, were selected to conduct three phases of operation. These include concept development, design/build/test and operations.

“FHWA will award an Indefinite-Delivery-Indefinite-Quantity contract to meet the Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office’s needs for technical evaluation support service of the Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment Program,” the agency says. “This award will allow for task orders to be issued as either Time-and-Materials and/or Firm-Fixed-Priced (FFP). The anticipated period of performance will not exceed 60 months.”

The proposals are due May 23 and more information is available here. More details on the Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment Program are available here.
