Innovative Contracting Methods

This document was developed as a resource for local governments to learn how to use contracting processes in a more cost-effective manner to, 1) let projects, 2) construct projects, and, 3) ensure quality projects. The Minnesota Local Road Research Board (LRRB) developed this resource on Innovative Contracting, designed as a guide to provide local government with guidance on a number of topics including: Mn/DOT’s Innovative Contracting Website; Minnesota Local Government Experience; Contracting 101; Best Value Procurement for Contractors; Force Account (State Aid); Bidder Qualification; and Alternate Bidding. The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) has been a leader in communicating information about innovative contracting to the public. They have developed a dedicated office that deals solely with Innovative Contracting, a website that contains a wealth of knowledge on the topic and has a tremendous staff base to guide the public on the use of innovative contracting techniques.
