California Department of Transportation

Call for Submissions

The Division of Research, Innovation & System Information (DRISI) of the California Department of Transportation (Department) requests research proposals from public research institutions: public colleges, universities, and government agencies that bring solutions to the Department’s research problems. Respondents are encouraged to engage in collaborations with industrial and public agency partners, and to enhance the research and to facilitate communication of research results to those who deploy and operate transportation systems (technology transfer).

Private universities or institutions are not eligible participants under this Call For Submissions (CFS) process and direct submittals from these institutions cannot be accepted. Public institutions using subcontracts with private entities are subject to certain conditions and may not be eligible under this CFS process. Respondents who have concerns over their eligibility are encouraged to contact the DRISI representative identified below to determine their status prior to spending time and resources on a proposal.

All needs in this CFS are based on an Initial Scope of Work (ISOW) derived from a customer need. The CFS focuses on the application of solutions to meet the Department’s mission of providing a save, sustainable, integrated and efficient transportation system to enhance California’s economy and livability.

Proposals must be submitted by May 29, 2015 at 5:00 PM (PST). Proposals must be a fully developed bid, with a clear scope of work linked to timelines (in weeks, not specific dates), milestones, and deliverables. Each major category in the budget shall be fully supported within the bid.
