Minnesota's Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

The State of Minnesota is committed to diversity and inclusion in its public procurement process. The goal is to ensure that those providing services to the State are representative of our Minnesota communities and include businesses owned by minorities, women, veterans, and those with substantial physical disabilities. Creating broader opportunities for historically under-represented groups provides for additional options and greater competition in the marketplace, creates stronger relationships and engagement within our communities, and fosters economic development and equality.

Whenever possible, MnDOT strongly encourages the use of Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE's), Targeted Group Businesses (TGB's) and Veteran Owned Businesses (VET).

Notices Open to All Consultants

Template of Consultant Scopes

Brief Description: This contract is phase 2 for the effort to create a template that contains scopes of work (SOW) for tasks that MnDOT typically gives to consultants. The phase 1 contract is complete, and it created a MSWord template with a specific outline and formatting, and incorporates the scope of work for two specific P6 work packages and created a manual that explains the outline and formatting to be used in the MSWord template. It created a web based application with a database system used to create and store the templates and assemble new MSWord documents. A guide describing how to use the web application and database, a process manual for updating the templates in the database, and maintaining the web application was also created. The purpose of this endeavor is that MnDOT staff have provided feedback that it is time consuming and difficult to write scopes of work to hire consultants. Consultants have provided feedback that scopes of work for consultant contracts vary greatly across the State in regards to detail and quality, which makes it difficult to respond to scopes of work that seem the same, but also seem to have different criteria or expectations. State wants to create a formatted document template with a library of scopes of work that describe tasks that are typically given to consultants that work for MnDOT. The web application then provides a checklist for the State employees to fill out, and then the system assembles the template content and outputs it into an MSWord document that is then saved to the State computer servers.
