  Electronic Contracting Pilot

As part of The Florida Department of Transportation’s paperless initiative, FDOT implemented the use of electronic signature technology for contracting beginning in August 2016. Procurement contracts and amendments will be executed by the Department and external signers (vendors/consultants/contractors) using an electronic signature web application. There is no cost to external signers. Please refer to the link for further detail and guidance on FDOT’s e-signature pilot and additional training information on how to sign.

For questions, please contact the Procurement Office, at 850-414-4477.

  Fraudulent Email Notifications  
  In support of the Agency’s paperless initiative, FDOT began use of an electronic signature application in August 2016, for purposes of executing contract documents. While new technology offers opportunities for process improvements, it may inevitably also present opportunities for phishing scams. Click here for information on what to do when you receive notifications to electronically sign a contract document from FDOT, to avoid becoming the victim of a phishing scam.

  Notice regarding compliance with Chapter 2016-62, Laws of Florida, for professional services contracts:  
  In accordance with Chapter 2016-62, Laws of Florida, consultants must ensure that lodging costs used to support a direct expense rate do not exceed the traveler’s daily room rate of $150. Effective August 1, 2016, the maximum room rate that may be paid for state travel is $150 per night, excluding taxes and fees.

Consultants will need to exclude all lodging costs in excess of $150 per night from the calculated direct expense percentage in their next annual reimbursement rate audit submittal. In support of this requirement, the independent CPA shall include a statement in the audit report to indicate that no costs used to calculate a direct expense rate exceeds this $150 per night restriction.

Consultants prequalified at a minor projects level that do not have an audited direct expense rate are restricted to the $150 per day lodging threshold when reimbursed for lodging on consultant contracts. To ensure compliance with Chapter 2016-62, Laws of Florida, the FDOT Project Manager should request appropriate support for reimbursable lodging costs.

If there are any questions, please contact Central Office Procurement at 850-414-4539.
