Description

TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 560: Guide to Contracting ITS Projects provides guidance on the procurement of intelligent transportation systems (ITS), including variable message signs, traffic detectors, signal controllers, and a variety of other hardware and software that entails applications of advanced electronics and information management to regulate and facilitate traffic flow. The report highlights best practices and recommends contracting strategies and contract types, terms, and conditions for ITS development, integration, system acceptance, warranty, maintenance, and upgrade.

The research team that produced NCHRP Report 560 has also prepared NCHRP Web-Only Document 85: Considerations for a Guide to Contracting ITS Projects that describes their work and many interim results that may be of value to other researchers and professionals facing ITS procurement issues. In addition, the researchers developed an on-line tool that applies the NCHRP Report 560's decision-making process.
