Has MDT conducted topographic survey of the 10 sites and will that information be available DB teams?  Reason for question is survey has been provided on past slope stability projects. This effort can be a significant for DB teams to undertake in the Tech Proposal process.
Answer
Submitted: Tuesday   07-FEB-2017 09:40 AM
MDT is finalizing the survey information. The survey information will be provided with the RFP.

Would MDT consider moving the completion date for the project to fall of 2018?  Given the high snowfall potential for the Missoula District, construction lane closures during the winter and early spring months will likely impede snow plow operations.  The current delivery schedule significantly restricts access to the sites and poses some safety concerns.  An extension would allow teams to better mitigate risks associated with inclement weather construction.
Answer
Submitted: Thursday 09-FEB-2017 08:52 AM

MDT will extend the contract time from what is included in the RFQ. New contract time language will be finalized and included in the Request For Proposals (RFP).

We noticed that in the posted Pre-Proposal Meeting minutes that only 2 of the 3 short listed firms attended. Since the one short listed firm was not in attendance they should be deemed non-responsive. What action, if any, will MDT consider for filling this spot
Answer
Submitted: Tuesday  04-APR-2017 04:39 PM
There was a malfunction in the Montana File Transfer System, which is how the short listed teams were issued the RFP. The third short listed team did not receive the RFP until the day of the pre-proposal meeting.  Due to the malfunction in the Montana File Transfer System, MDT determined that the third short listed team will be allowed to submit Technical and Price Proposals.
