3 Turnkey Asset Maintenance Services Contracts: Overview Mandated by Va Code § , which requires that (with few exceptions) all maintenance on the Commonwealth’s Interstate roadways will be accomplished under contracts awarded by the Commonwealth Transportation Commissioner and approved by the Commonwealth Transportation Board.Two initial contracts in 2005 and 2006 covered Route I-64 Williamsburg (East) and Charlottesville (West).Four contracts followed in 2007: two in Richmond, one each in Salem and Bristol.100% of Commonwealth’s Interstate roadway maintenance outsourced in advance of due date of July 1, 2009.
4 Evolution of TAMS Contracts As of September 2014 there are 13 active TAMS contract segmentsFour Contracts, I-64 West Culpeper, I-64 East Williamsburg, Richmond South, and Staunton South follow a TAMS contract template which incorporates cost saving modifications while maintaining performance criteria specific to the service area.Five Contracts, Richmond North, Bristol, Hampton Roads, Salem, and Staunton North are managed by VDOT and also follow the new TAMS Contract template as referenced above.The Woodrow Wilson Bridge (WWB) TAMS Contract is unique in that it represents a partnership with the Maryland State Highway Administration.Three existing Northern Virginia contracts, I-95/395, I-495, and I-66, have similar performance and evaluation criteria, based on modifications made as a cost-saving measure by VDOT.The 3 NOVA contracts are slated to expire in March They will be replaced by four contract segments. The new contracts have been advertised and are expected to be considered for award by the Commonwealth Transportation Board agenda in October 2014.
5 Evolution of TAMS Contracts Significant Changes to TAMS Contract Management as enacted by VDOT for any forthcoming contracts:The required Maintenance Rating Program (MRP) Evaluation Ratings for all Asset Groups has been raised to 90%.MRP Ratings for individual Asset Items shall be equal to or greater than 70%.A 10% sample of 1/10th mile Interstate roadway segments will be chosen from the total population of 1/10th mile segments on a specific contract.Within each 10% sample, 100% of the assets will be evaluated.The MRP sample population will be stratified so that the Bridge Asset Group will not be underrepresented in the evaluation process.The Deduction Cap of 3% for Timeliness Nonperformance has been eliminated. Some performance measures have also been updated.NOVA contracts include these changes.Example Performance Measure changesPotholes – changed from 6”x6”x1.5” No PotholesBridges – changed from patching all components temporary patch riding surface, annual deck washing and bi-annual structure washingDitches – changed from <10% of length containing obstruction(s) impeding the flow of water ≤ 20% of x-section impedes flow of water
