On Feb. 21, 2013, TxDOT introduced three processes for the purpose of procuring architectural, engineering, and surveying services. These were the Standard Process, the Federal Process, and the Small Contract Process. The Federal Process was later amended on Aug. 9, 2013 to accommodate the FHWA’s “safe harbor” initiative. Effective Oct. 17, 2013, the Standard Process was amended as the Comprehensive Process and the Small Contract Process was amended as the Accelerated Process. Also, a fourth process was added, the Streamlined Process. The administrative qualification requirements for all four processes- Comprehensive, Federal, Streamlined, and Accelerated- are addressed in the Texas Administrative Code, Title 43, Subchapter C, in Sections 9.34(b), 9.35(b), 9.36(b), and 9.37(b), respectively.
Prime providers and subproviders are subject to the Administrative Qualification Requirements, effective Feb. 21, 2013.
