Below is the uncorrected machine-read text of this chapter, intended to provide our own search engines and external engines with highly rich, chapter-representative searchable text of each book. Because it is UNCORRECTED material, please consider the following text as a useful but insufficient proxy for the authoritative book pages.

82 A P P E N D I X D This appendix contains useful information that is specific to implementing ATCs on CMGC projects. The appendix contains • Generic flowchart for implementing ATCs (Figure D.1) • Example ATC submittal and evaluation form CMGC ATC Information

Removing risk and applying innovation will reduce the cost of construction. Explain the process the Contractor will use to identify, price, eliminate, and/or mitigate risk. How will the Contractor track risk/innovation savings? How will the Contractor support the team during pre-construction and construction activities to manage risk and innovation to achieve a favorable cost at or below traditional projects? D.1 CMGC PTC Flowchart Criteria Discussion Figure D.1. Generic CMGC PTC implementation flowchart.

84 Guidebook for Implementing Alternative Technical Concepts in All Types of Highway Project Delivery Methods Along with the detailed price description, provide a risk assessment and actions that will be undertaken during pre-construction to identify and minimize risk. Identify risks in the table below that can be eliminated or mitigated in design and construction. Identify risk mitigation in the table below that decreases cost and the cost savings projected. Risks that cannot be identified and quantified should be included in your price proposal. The narrative approach to price may also include discussion of any unique business advantage or construction methods that will reduce project costs. The evaluation of your response will be made using the information presented in the table below. Risk and Innovation Matrix: Risk or Innovation Description Probable Cost of Risk or Innovation Probability of Occurrence Cost Savings to the Project Schedule Impact to the Project (Days) Summary of Implementation or Mitigation/Elimination plan Analysis of risk and innovation will be done without regard to which contractor proposed the risk or innovation. In this analysis each risk/innovation will be grouped by type and similarity. Each group will be assessed for cost and probability of occurrence to establish their relative importance and point value. The value of each risk or innovation is therefore established by the selection team without regards to who identified the risk or innovation. Individual scores will then be determined by the risk/innovation identified by each contractor. The point value is determined by the Contractor’s proposed implementation or mitigation or elimination plan and the point value of the risk or innovation proposed. To assist in this evaluation process, it is important that the table above be filled out accurately and completely.

The past decade has been characterized by the pressing need to rapidly renew the nation’s deteriorating infrastructure, which has driven the increased use of alternative contracting methods for transportation and other infrastructure projects.

The TRB National Cooperative Highway Research Program's NCHRP Research Report 937: Guidebook for Implementing Alternative Technical Concepts in All Types of Highway Project Delivery Methods is designed to help guide alternative technical concepts (ATCs) in the state highway project delivery process. The ATC process—used with design-build highway project delivery—solicits design modification ideas offered by respondents during the bidding process. These modifications aim to encourage innovation and improve design requirements while giving the respondent a competitive advantage.

The report is accompanied by an Excel-based ATC Implementation Toolkit and an associated publication, NCHRP Web-Only Document 277: Implementing Alternative Technical Concepts in All Types of Highway Project Delivery Methods.
