These two offset intersections make navigation difficult for truck traffic. The relocated roadway will be constructed within the existing ROW and a proposed easement obtained by the City of Warren. The project includes new full-depth asphalt pavement, curb, sidewalks, ADA curb ramps, drive aprons, signing, pavement markings, and 355 feet of storm sewer.

Exhibit 1 - Consultant Selection Rating Form Notes

  1. The proposed project manager for each consultant shall be ranked, with the highest ranked project manager receiving the greatest number of points, and lower ranked project managers receiving commensurately lower scores. The rankings and scores should be based on each project manager’s experience on similar projects and past performance for Trumbull County and other agencies. The selection committee may contact ODOT and outside agencies if necessary. Any subfactors identified should be weighed heavily in the differential scoring.

Differential scoring should consider the relative importance of the project manager’s role in the success of a given project. The project manager’s role in a simple project may be less important than for a complex project, and differential scoring should reflect this, with higher differentials assigned to projects that require a larger role for the project manager.

  1. The experience and strength of the assigned staff, including subconsultant staff, should be ranked and scored as noted for Number 1 above, with higher differential scores assigned on more difficult projects. Any subfactors identified in the project notification should be weighed heavily in the differential scoring.

As above, other agencies may be contacted.

  1. The consultant’s past performance on similar projects shall be ranked and scored on a relative, differential scoring type basis, with the highest ranked consultant receiving a commensurately greater number of points. The selection team should consider ODOT CES performance ratings if available, and consult other agencies as appropriate.

The differential scoring should consider the complexity of the project and any subfactors identified in the project notification.

  1. The consultant’s workload and availability of qualified personnel, equipment and facilities shall be ranked and scored on a relative, differential scoring type basis. The selection team shall consider an equitable distribution of work to similarly qualified firms.
