Alternative Contracts


Welcome to Innovative Contracting
Innovative Contracting (IC) is a central function responsible for the implementation of alternative project delivery methods which fall outside of the conventional design-bid-build method. The IC is a section within the ITD Headquarters’ Contracting Services and works closely with the other department sections to coordinate, train and deliver highway projects through alternative methods. The IC will be a resource for the Department to facilitate the evaluation and identification of alternate contract delivery candidate projects each year as part of the Idaho Transportation Improvement Program (ITIP), and will also support all six Districts by facilitating the contract procurement process.

Consultant Agreements

Consultant Services

The Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) uses consultant engineering services as an integral part in accomplishing the department’s goals to provide a safe and efficient transportation system in Idaho. The consultant work force is considered an extension of the Highway Division performing the same tasks and procedures as ITD personnel.

It is the responsibility of the Consultant Services Section to provide assurance of compliance by monitoring transactions and procedures relating to consultants performing professional engineering services. All professional services agreements for project development and highway improvements connected to a highway project must be processed through the Consultant Services Section.

Consultants are utilized by selection from the pre-approved list of consultants (See “Term Agreement Qualifications & Information” below), or through individual project solicitation (See “Open Project Solications” below).

All currently scheduled highway projects are listed on the Idaho Transportation Investment Program (ITIP).
