SCOPE OF SERVICES
HIGHWAY ASSET MANAGEMENT CONTRACT
Contract Number: ___________________
Financial Project Number (s): _______________________________________
PROJECT BACKGROUND AND CONSIDERATIONS:
In an effort to provide the traveling public of the State of Florida a cost effective, high quality,
transportation infrastructure, the Florida Department of Transportation (hereinafter "Department") has
adopted innovative management, operation, and maintenance programs. The Department has an
innovative highway asset management program whereby the Department will contract with a private
entity for the management of all assets located within the right-of-way for an entire geographical area or
portion of roadway. Due to the inherent difficulty of specifically defining the structure of the
maintenance management program for which the contractual service is required, it is the intent of the
Department to solicit for competitive sealed proposals.
Once the contract is executed, the Department will monitor the contractor's maintenance
management program and conduct evaluations based upon performance specifications established in the
contract. The use of performance specifications, which effectively transfer day-to-day managerial and
administrative responsibility to the contractor, with oversight by the Department, has been chosen
because methodology specifications would require the Department to perform extensive contract
administration including work identification, work assignment, inspection, and documentation.
The Contractor will manage and perform all routine maintenance activities associated with
Roadway, Structures, Drainage, Roadside, Rest Areas, Wayside Parks, Vegetation and Aesthetics, Traffic
Services, Structure Inspection and Incident Management.
INSERT THE PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND LIMITS HERE
The scope of this project includes management and performance of routine maintenance of all
components of the transportation facility currently maintained by the Department within, or associated
with, the state road right-of-ways, including off-system local bridge inspection and other State Agency
(a.) All interchanges, crossroads and ramps to the point at which the right-of-way terminates
or as shown by the Department through supplemental description.
(b.) All overpasses over the transportation facilities out to the right-of-way line.
(c.) All waterway and intermittent waterway canals to the right-of-way line including
compliance with any permit requirements.
(d.) All stormwater management and mitigation areas associated with the highway corridor
including compliance with any permit requirements.
(e.) All Rest Areas, Wayside Parks, Recreational Areas and Weigh Stations including sewage
treatment facilities and potable water treatment facilities. This does not include weigh station scales.
(f.) All structure inspection and routine maintenance. Structures include bridges, overlane

The sequence of reimbursement for damages will be as follows:
1. Pursuit of claims against the individual or entity which caused damages, or their insurers
2. If eligible, compensation from FEMA or FHWA for qualifying reimbursements
3. Department provided insurance coverage*
4. Contractor coverage
* The Department has insurance coverage on some facilities such as rest areas, weigh stations
and bridges. To the extent the coverage is available; the Department may transfer the qualifying
reimbursement amounts to the Contractor to offset the Contractor’s actual costs to restore the system.
The Contractor’s responsibility to make damage repairs at its own expense, in each twelve (12)-
month period beginning with the date of the original contract, shall be limited to fifty percent (50%) of
the annual contract amount for that year. Such fifty percent (50%) of the annual contract amount cap shall
be in addition to any amounts reasonably obtainable under items 1, 2 and 3 above, and any damage
repairs caused by the Contractor’s negligence. The annual contract amount as used above means each
twelve (12)-month period beginning with the date of the original contract and each annual anniversary

contractor will not be liable for damage beyond the extent of the amounts obtained in items 1, 2, and 3
MAINTENANCE RATING PROGRAM:
The Contractor will achieve and maintain an annual Maintenance Rating Program (MRP) rating
of eighty (80). The Contractor will use the criteria established in the Department's MRP to evaluate and
establish the level of maintenance attained to ensure a uniform consistent level of Maintenance at all
times. The requirements and criteria for the MRP are found in the Roadway and Roadside Maintenance
procedure (Topic Number 850-000-015), the MRP procedure (Topic Number 850-065-002) and the MRP
Handbook. All elements (roadway, roadside, traffic services, drainage and vegetation/aesthetics) shall
have a rating of seventy five (75) or above and each characteristic shall meet the desired conditions a
minimum of seventy (70) percent of the time.
The Contractor will perform the MRP rating three (3) times per year. The Department will
produce and provide to the Contractor locations to be rated each period. Upon receipt of the samples
from the Department, the Contractor will be responsible for completing the survey of those samples and
submitting all MRP coding sheets to the Department five (5) days before the last working day of the
scheduled period. The MRP rating will be performed using the criteria in the MRP Handbook. The
Contractor will certify the accuracy of each MRP rating to the Department. The Department will
calculate the MRP score for the Contractor. The Department may perform MRP ratings as a quality
control check of the Contractor. The Department may also evaluate any specific component independent
of the routine MRP evaluations.
If the MRP rating for any period is disputed, the Department may perform a separate MRP
inspection. The locations rated by the Department, for quality control or MRP dispute resolution, may or
may not coincide with the locations rated by the Contractor. If there is a difference between the
Contractor's MRP rating and the Department's MRP rating, the Contractor's MRP rating will be adjusted.
To obtain the adjusted rating, the Department will add to its calculated MRP rating a margin of error of
two (2) points. The two (2) point margin of error can be applied at the overall MRP, Element or
Characteristic level. The Contractor's rating will then be adjusted to this number. The MRP rating for
the period shall be the adjusted number.
The Contractor will be responsible for permitting activities within or associated with the Right of
Way. The Contractor will meet all the requirements in Florida Administrative Code Rules, in particular,

Routine bridge maintenance is defined as preventive maintenance and minor repairs. These tasks
are divided into the applicable routine maintenance activities. The Contractor will perform routine bridge
maintenance, overhead sign structure, and weathering steel light pole maintenance, including collision
damage repair, on the state right-of-way, defined as follows:
(a.) Preventive Maintenance: The preservation and upkeep of a structure, including all its
appurtenances, in its original condition (or as subsequently improved) insofar as practical. Preventive
maintenance includes any activity intended to maintain an existing condition or to prevent deterioration.
Examples include: cleaning, lubrication, spot painting and application of protective systems. Ideally,
preventive maintenance is anticipated (i.e. planned) routine maintenance and does not require a Bridge
Work Order to accomplish the work.
(b.) Minor Maintenance and Repair: The restoration of a structure, including all its
appurtenances, to its original condition (or as subsequently improved) insofar as practical. Minor repairs
include any activity intended to correct the effects of minor material deterioration by restoring the
damaged member. Minor repairs are generally defined as repairs to bridge elements that are structurally
sound (i.e., no loss of strength), but may have minor section loss, cracking, spalling or scour. These
conditions will have "fair", "satisfactory" or "good" condition ratings. Minor repairs are un-anticipated
routine maintenance, usually identified by bridge inspectors and require a Work Order to schedule and
accomplish the work. Examples include localized material restoration of: deck expansion joints, deck
surfaces, sidewalks, drainage systems, bridge railing systems, superstructure members and bearing
devices, substructure members and waterway channels.
Non-routine Maintenance is defined as periodic maintenance, major repairs and rehabilitation.
The Contractor will not be required to perform non-routine bridge maintenance defined as follows:
(a.) Periodic Maintenance and Major Repair: The restoration of a structure, including all its
appurtenances, to its original condition (or as subsequently improved) insofar as practical. Major repairs
include any activity intended to correct deteriorated members. Conditions requiring major repairs
include loss of section, deterioration, spalling or scour that affect the strength of the member.
Engineering analysis is often performed to determine the extent of the lost strength. These conditions
will have "poor", "serious", or worse condition ratings for primary structural members.
(b.) Rehabilitation: The improvement or betterment of a structure, including all its
appurtenances, to a condition meeting or exceeding current design standards, insofar as practical.
Examples of rehabilitation include: widening a bridge to meet lane/shoulder width requirements,
replacement of substandard bridge rails, raising a bridge to meet clearance requirements, strengthening a
bridge to increase load carrying capacity to accepted limits and upgrading the operational equipment of a
The Contractor will manage and perform maintenance of Rest Areas. The Contractor will
maintain all rest areas and wayside parks on the corridors covered by this contract. Attachment IV details

operate the rest areas in accordance with the requirements in the Standard Maintenance Scope of Services
for rest area maintenance. The Contractor shall grant "Respect of Florida" first right of refusal on all rest
area operations. The Contractor will maintain all components of the rest area facility including
wastewater treatment facilities, buildings, grounds, potable water facilities, and emergency generators.
The Contractor will provide Security Guard Services in accordance with the requirements in the Standard
Maintenance Scope of Services for security guard services. The Contractor will perform routine
inspections and record the results of routine inspections of the rest areas and wayside parks using the
Quality Assessment Review/Rest Area Inspection form (Attachment II). The Contractor will provide
copies of documentation of rest area inspections to the Department upon request. The Department may
conduct monthly inspections of the rest areas using the same form.
The Contractor is required to achieve and maintain a score of eighty five (85) or better on the
Quality Assessment Review/Rest Area Inspection form.
Information centers in the Rest Areas are the responsibilities of others. The Department will pay
utility bills (water, electric, sewer) associated with each rest area. The Contractor will keep all rest area
permits up-to-date, operate and maintain all facilities in accordance with those permits and will respond
to all environmental issues involving the rest areas. Attachment III details the desired maintenance
conditions for the rest areas.
1. Maintenance Rating Program:
The Contractor will conduct MRP ratings every four months. Beginning with the first four
(4)month period, the Department will hold retainage equal to one percent (1%) of the cumulative amount
of four months payments for each point below an overall maintenance rating of eighty (80).
The Department will hold additional retainage equal to one half of one percent (.5%) of the
cumulative amount of four months payments for each point below seventy five (75) on any element
The Department will hold additional retainage equal to one quarter of one percent (.25%) of the
cumulative amount of four months payments for each percentage point below seventy (70) on any
The Department will hold the retainage until the Contractor conducts the final four months
Maintenance Rating and the annual maintenance rating is calculated. The percentages given ( one
percent (1%) each point of MRP rating below eighty (80), one half of one percent (.5%) each point of
elements below seventy five (75) and one quarter of one percent (.25%) each percentage point of
characteristics below seventy (70), on the annual rating) will be applied to the entire annual contract
amount. If the calculated amount is less than the retainage, the balance of the retainage will be paid to
the Contractor. If the total reduction assessed exceeds the retainage amount, the balance will be deducted
from the Contractor's payment.
Adjusted MRP ratings will be calculated as defined in section titled Maintenance Rating Program
Each month the Department may check permits entered into the Permits Information Tracking
System. There will be one tenth of one percent (0.10%) (.001) of the monthly lump sum deducted per
day, per permit, for each day over sixty (60) days used to process any permit to resolution. This
reduction is not cumulative but will be calculated only for the number of days exceeding the sixty (60)
days processing time within the month being paid. The sixty (60) days will begin when the Contractor
receives a complete permit application. Resolution of the permit is considered complete when the permit
is officially submitted to the Department with documentation and recommendation sufficient for approval
or denial. The total of the permit reduction will be deducted from the Contractors monthly lump sum
3 Rest Areas:
The Department will produce and provide to the Contractor a schedule of Rest Area inspections
to be performed by the Contractor on a monthly basis. The Rest Area Inspection Schedule will identify
the required inspection date and time for each Rest Area. The specified inspection will be performed by
the contractor and reported to the Department on a monthly basis.
If the Contractor is not present at the Rest Area at the scheduled time to perform the Rest Area
inspection, The Department will assign a score of zero.
The Department may inspect Rest Areas using the “Quality Assessment Review/Rest Area
Inspection” checklist at any time. If the Department’s score is lower than eighty five (85), two points
will be added to the Departments score, and that score shall be the official score. There will be a
$1,000.00 per point, per Rest Area reduction, for any month for scores less than the required rating of
eighty five (85). The total of the Rest Area reductions will be deducted from the Contractor’s monthly
lump sum payment. In addition, the Contractor will be assessed reductions, as defined in the Standard
Maintenance Scope of Services, for Security Guard Services. The Contractor will be assessed reductions,
as defined in the Standard Maintenance Scope of Services, for Rest Area Maintenance Services. There
will be a $1,000.00 per hour, per Rest Area, reduction for each Rest Area closure caused by Contractor
