Reduce Time on Project A+B Bidding Contractors bid the time to complete the project and a dollar amount for work items Award to lowest combinations of time and cost Lane-Rental Minimize the time lanes are closed Contractors are charged a fee for closing lanes and shoulders Focus on time the public is affected
A + B Bidding Benefits: Improved coordination between prime and sub-contractors Reduced construction time minimizes impacts to users Contractors are required to put together a well conceived schedule Drawbacks : Contract changes are magnified; too many changes nullify the advantages of A+B Acceleration techniques may require more resources for contract administration More hours and over-time budget required from Region staff Negotiations for additional work are more intense since time is a bigger issue
A+B Candidates Good: Interstate Projects Mill and Overlays Projects with Detours Bridge Painting Intersection upgrades New Construction/Reconstruction Bad: Third-party delays Rehabilitations
Lane Rental Benefits: – Better coordination of prime and sub-contractors – Minimized impact to traveling public – Better public perception due to fewer un-utilized lane closures Drawbacks: – Extra effort by staff to monitor lane rental – Negotiating lane rental adjustments can be difficult with contract changes – Potential added costs to the project
Lane Rental Candidates Good: Mill and Overlay (2-lane roads with flagging ops. or intersection impacts) Safety projects (guardrail/signing/striping/bridge painting) Bad: New construction Long-term projects
Warranties Guarantee all or portions of a construction project Free of defects in material Workmanship Time Period Correct deficiencies during warranty period
Warranty Pros and Cons Benefits Quality and durability guaranteed Longer acceptance time Less inspection needed Drawbacks Owner must ensure warranty Warranty may not be collectable Staffing to monitor warranty
Incentives - Disincentives Paid for early completions Penalized for late completions
I & D Pros and Cons Benefits Reduced construction time May lower contract admin costs PI benefits Control of project acceleration Drawbacks May require additional funding Contract changes may lead to disputes
Pay-for-Performance Pay is dependent upon final outcome Measured against performance criteria Set by contract Pay withheld for poor performance Corrective action required
PFP Pros and Cons Benefits Eliminates blame Shifts risk to contractor Higher quality Drawbacks Time to measure performance Long project close- out Monitoring is time- consuming Contractor may have to finance a portion
