FHWA hosts Alternative Contracting Methods – Alternative Technical Concepts (ATCs) webinar

The Alternative Technical Concepts (ATCs) contracting method facilitates a smarter way of doing business by allowing early contractor involvement during a project’s competitive procurement phase, which often leads to the best value for state DOTs and the public. Through ATCs, the contractors can propose cost-effective solutions that are equal to or better than the State DOT’s design and/or construction criteria. The ATCs encourage competition among contractors, allow innovations, save costs and reduce the delivery time. Given these known benefits, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is actively promoting the implementation of ATCs as a part of the second round of Every Day Counts initiatives (EDC-2).

Who Should Attend
The series is designed to appeal to a wide audience of all stakeholders that help deliver highway projects, regardless of experience with ATCs. The target audience includes FHWA Division offices, State and local transportation agencies, Federal Lands Highway offices, and the contracting and consulting communities.
