44 GeorGia DoT SUe PreqUalificaTion reqUiremenTS The state of Georgia Department of Transportation defines the following prequalification requirements for SUE (Area Class 5.08), which can be found in the âConsultant Prequali- fication Manualâ (http://www.dot.state.ga.us/doingbusiness/ consultants/Documents/Consultant%20Prequalification%20 Manual11509.pdf). Class 5.08âSubsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) This class of work is defined as the engineering processes that involve managing certain risks associated with accurately and comprehensively identifying, characterizing, and map- ping overhead and underground utility facilities. The major activities include utility records research, mapping, desig- nating, utility impact analysis, locating, and data manage- ment. Other activities associated with this class of work are utility relocation design, coordination, and training. These activities, when coordinated with utility owners, Depart- ment personnel, and surveyors, provide high quality utility information for use during project development, design, and construction. These activities should conform to standards and guidelines as described in FHWA and ASCE Subsur- face Utility Engineering publications in conjunction with the Departmentâs current standards, guidelines, and processes and SUE scope of services. (1) Professional Status Registration as a Professional Engineer with the Georgia State Board of Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors and proven proficiency in the field of Civil Engineering with emphasis on transportation and utility design. Registration as a Land Surveyor with the Georgia State Board of Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors and proven proficiency in the field of route surveying with emphasis on designating utilities. (2) Adequacy of Personnel At least two professionals, one of each as stated in item one (1) above are required. One of the professionals is required to perform independent checks of data, calculations, plans, and reports of the other. At least two designators are required. At least one key personnel must demonstrate a strong work- ing knowledge of the Departmentâs current Plans Develop- ment Process (PDP). Must have sufficient personnel to prepare engineering plans, reports and specifications to the Departmentâs current Elec- tronic Data Guidelines and SUE Standards. aPPenDix c SUe Prequalification criteria Must demonstrate to have sufficient personnel to accommo- date multiple projects simultaneously. The number of professional and technical support personnel must be recorded and updated. (3) Equipment Must have adequate equipment to demonstrate the ability to designate both metallic and non-metallic types of under- ground utility facilities in accordance with the current ASCE standard CI/ASCE 38-02 âStandard Guidelines for the Depiction of Existing Subsurface Utility Data.â Must have adequate equipment to demonstrate the ability to locate underground utility facilities in a minimally intrusive manner. Must have adequate equipment to demonstrate the ability to accurately and efficiently survey and reduce field information. Must have adequate equipment to prepare engineering plans, reports and specifications to the Departmentâs current Elec- tronic Data Guidelines and SUE Standards. (4) Past Record, Experience, and Capability Satisfactory experience must be demonstrated in the activi- ties required by this class by the individual(s) who are bona fide employees for the firm thereof. iowa DoT SUe PreqUalificaTion reqUiremenTS Description: This category of work is defined as an engineering process for accurately identifying subsurface utility facility loca- tions. The firm should be able to precisely identify, locate, and map the horizontal and vertical position of underground utilities, as well as the type, size, condition, material, and other character- istics. These services shall be performed by using existing utility records, survey, surface geophysical techniques, and nondestruc- tive digging methods. Firms should able to present this informa- tion in CADD and tie it into project plans. Work in this category includes: â¢ Mapping at designated quality levels â¢ Utility coordination â¢ Utility relocation design and coordination â¢ Utility condition and assessment â¢ Communication of utility data to concerned parties â¢ Utility relocation cost estimates â¢ Implementation of utility accommodation policies â¢ Utility design for highway plans during the development of a highway project.
45 Minimum Qualification Standards MQS: Statement B or Statement C. Also, the project man- ager should have been involved in the management of at least three SUE projects. Statement B. Professional status in the category of work shall be demonstrated on Form 102113 by reference to at least one person registered by the Iowa Engineering and Land Surveying Examining Board as a professional engineer. Resumes of personnel so referenced shall indi- cate the extent and nature of experience in the category of work. Other personnel supporting prequalification in the category shall be referenced on Form 102113. Satisfac- tory experience in the category shall be demonstrated on Form 102113 by reference to completed projects. Firms may designate one or more individuals, holding a cer- tificate of registration granted by the Iowa Engineering and Land Surveying Examining Board as a professional engineer, as responsible for the practice of engineering in Iowa by the firm. The designated individual or individu- als shall have full authority to make all final engineering decisions on behalf of the firm with respect to the work performed by the firm. This designation shall not relieve the firm of any responsibility or liability imposed upon it by law or by contract. Statement C. All requirements expressed in Statement âBâ above shall apply with the exception that in lieu of reg- istration as a professional engineer, registration as a land surveyor is required.
