Best Value Implementation
Best-Value Research - The Scan Implementation Team was successful working with NCHRP to modify the scope of NCHRP 10-61 ("Best-Value Procurement Methods for Highway Construction Projects"). Additional case studies were included to document the use of best value contracting in some of the European countries. The NCHRP published a final report for this research as NCHRP Report 561: Best-Value Procurement Methods for Highway Construction.
Best-Value Pilot Projects - The TCM is monitoring the current use of best-value contracting through the FHWA's Special Experimental Project No. 14 (SEP-14) - Innovative Contracting program. See the FHWA's SEP-14 Approval List for specific pilot projects that have been approved for best-value.
