New Caltrans Consultant Selection and Procurement Web Page

Caltrans Division of Local Assistance recently launched a new web page to assist local agencies with Consultant Selection and Procurement. This web page contains important information and guidance on the consultant procurement process related to federal-aid highway program funded projects. Consultant services contracts funded in whole, or in part, with federal-aid program funds must be procured in accordance with federal requirements of the Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards in 2 CFR Part 200. In addition, consultant contracts for engineering and design, also known as Architectural or A&E, must also comply with the requirements established in 23 USC Part 112, 40 USC Section 1101-1104 (Brooks Act), and 23 CFR Part 172. This web page is designed to assist local agencies in meeting these requirements.
