Specifications include, but are not limited to: The model update will require close coordination between the MPO staff and the consultant staff. The consultant will schedule an initial kick-off meeting with the MPO and other stakeholders within two weeks from the date of Notice to Proceed. The consultant will develop an updated and final scope of work, cost estimate with changes from the kick-off meeting, and provide them to the MPO for approval. The consultant will schedule regular coordination meetings to provide an update on the progress of the model update. These meetings will not only serve as a channel to update the MPO on the progress of the project but also to jointly resolve any modeling issues that may arise during the course of the project. The consultant and MPO will determine the frequency of these meetings. Additional informal coordination also will occur as needed to facilitate project progress.
