This tab discusses the general requirements you're likely to encounter when
preparing to propose on an ADOT project as a subconsultant.
All companies working with ADOT are required to carry certain types of insurance. The specific type of insurance and coverage and limits required may vary depending on your type of business as well as the size and type of contract you wish to bid. ADOT will require the winning contractor or consultant to submit proof of insurance (usually done by submitting a certificate of insurance will accompanying endorsements).
Here are some common types of insurance that would be required on an ADOT contract:
For more specific information, see the ECS Insurance Requirements section of the ADOT website.
Debarment and suspension procedures are intended to prevent waste, abuse and fraud. Debarment and suspension procedures are used to prevent an individual or firm from doing business with the federal or state government, and are enacted if there is adequate evidence that the individual or firm has a history of acting in bad faith.
Essentially, the prime consultant and all subconsultants must certify that they are in fact eligible to enter into a contract with ADOT. If you are unable to do so, you may submit a written explanation to ECS.
For more information on suspension and debarment, visit the U.S. Department of Transportation website.
All firms, both prime and subconsultants, are subject to pre-award audits. Financial documentation for the audits must be submitted within two weeks of receiving notice of selection. In general, this information is provided as evidence that your firm is compliant with federal and state cost principles.
Largely, this means your firm must submit a completed audit questionnaire, which can be found in the Audit and Analysis section of the ADOT website.
