Working with MDT
The Montana Department of Transportation does not currently maintain a specific long range plan for consultant utilization. As projects are nominated, internal staff analyzes the capability for MDT to complete the work internally, at which time the decision is made to design with internal MDT staff or to utilize a consultant firm.
Be sure to check out the Current RFQs and RFPs page to see current project/term contract solicitations.
The table below contains known projects/term contracts coming up that the MDT is planning to utilize external consultant services for at this time.
|Project / Term Contract||General Scope of Services||Projected Date of Consultant Selection|

Additionally, the study will include an analysis of the costs associated with an abandonment option.||2017|
