In an effort to ensure that FDOT is continually improving the right of way Acquisition and Relocation processes, we provide surveys to property owners and/or displacees impacted by our transportation projects.

Electronic Contracting at FDOT
Posted: 28 June, 2017

As a part of the Department’s electronic contracting and paperless initiatives, FDOT is initiating the use of a program which will use the DocuSign® application. Beginning in June 2017, the Office of Right of Way will provide an option for Purchase Agreements, Expert Witness Contracts, and Task Work Orders to be executed by FDOT and external signers (property owners/experts/contractors) using the DocuSign® application. External signers will not incur any additional costs related to the implementation of this initiative.
For more information, you may refer to the following hyperlinks: FDOT’s e-signature pilot and instructional video. Please direct all questions related to this notice to Tonja Clemons at 850-414-4584 or email your inquiries to tonja.clemons@dot.state.fl.us.
