The Department contracts with consultants to provide a variety of services. The Consultant Evaluation Process provides the Department with a means of evaluating the work performance of those consultants. For all professional services contracts, the consultant's work performance for each advertised major type of work must be evaluated by the Department's project manager. The consultant for each contract will be evaluated in the following areas: Schedule, Management, Quality & Constructability (for those contracts that produce construction plans).

The Department's Procedure Number 375-030-007 prescribes the process for evaluating and reporting Professional Services Consultant work performance.

The Consultant Evaluation Guidelines below provide guidance on the expectations and performance measures for the rating scale in each evaluation item.  This guidance is provided in the form of fillable worksheets which may be used to draft an evaluation prior to submitting the official evaluation.The scores and comments must be transferred to the official evaluation within the FDOT Consultant Evaluation (CE) internal application. A valid FDOT Login is required to use this system.

PLEASE NOTE:
Detailed guidelines are currently not available for all Work Types. During this time, only Work Group 4 guidelines worksheet is posted for user testing. Guideline worksheets for other work groups (marked with the Release Date “TBD”) will be posted after the testing is complete. The other Work Groups (marked with the Release Date “N/A”), are currently not anticipated to have any additional guidance, but may at a later date.  Please send any comments to Rob Quigley.
