About

In June 2013, Connecticut Public Act 12-239 was signed into Law, directing the Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) to create a state funded Local Transportation Capital Improvement Program (LOTCIP) with an initial annual budget of $45 million for each of fiscal years 2014 and 2015. CTDOT subsequently developed 2013 LOTCIP program guidelines which established the program responsibilities for municipalities, planning regions, and CTDOT. LOTCIP was initiated to provide municipalities with a funding source and supplant the portion of STP-Urban funds that CTDOT is now planning to utilize for projects on State roadways. Therefore, LOTCIP eligibility requirements mirror those of the STP-Urban program. In June of 2015, the state budget allocated $74 million annually for LOTCIP in each of fiscal years 2016 and 2017.

Consultants Selected for the LOTCIP Program Assistance (on-call services)

CRCOG has selected the on-call firms listed below, with contact information, to assist municipalities with LOTCIP tasks.  Although municipalities are not mandated to contract with them, these are the firms that, through a selection process, have demonstrated their technical expertise and knowledge of the LOTCIP program.  Also, CRCOG has coordinated with these firms in efforts to standardize their fee schedules in accordance with State LOTCIP requirements.  The Fee Schedules will be made available to CRCOG municipalities upon request (please contact Rob Aloise).  It is required that these fee schedules apply to all LOTCIP on-call related work (including for estimating lump-sum fees and upset limits).

The firms were chosen through CRCOG’s competitive qualifications based selection (QBS) process and therefore are expected to satisfy the selection requirements of its member municipalities.  The selected consultants are scheduled to remain on each list for 36 months beginning June 1, 2017 and ending May 31, 2019.
