Division of Transportation Development, Information Management Branch: On-Call Services Scope of Services
CDOT’s Information Management Branch (IMB), a branch of the Division of Transportation Development, seeks consultant assistance to enhance its ability to fulfill its responsibilities, particularly in un-planned circumstances: reacting to ad-hoc requests from senior management, keeping projects going in the context of staff loss; or conducting projects on tight schedules. IMB is responsible for a broad range of information and data-related activities at CDOT, providing support to customers across the agency, and to many outside partners, including federal and local government entities as well as private companies across the state and nation. Broadly described, IMB is responsible for acquiring, maintaining, disseminating and analyzing data that describes CDOT assets (primarily transportation facility assets such as roads, number of lanes on each road, etc.) and the use of those assets (such as traffic on each road, forecasts of traffic, etc.) The Branch is divided into two “Sections”, the Mobility and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) sections. This scope of services outlines support that may be needed by both sections.
This project requires the services of a consultant with extensive experience in software development, database software, data management, and data acquisition, including working in the context of a DOT’s data management arena. Consultant should have a working knowledge of federal and state data requirements. The selected consultant(s) will work under the direction of DTD’ IMB branch, section, and unit managers. CDOT anticipates this contract will be a five year term: one year, with an option to renew for an additional 4 years. The work will not be evenly distributed throughout the months or years, as it will be driven by unexpected requests. The consultant must have staff available for quick turn-around work with completion in as little as a week in some special cases. Key staff of the consultant must be located in the Denver region, and responsive to requests for telephone or in-person meetings with as little as one or two days’ notice.
