Exploring the Modified Procurement Framework for Expediting Florida Connected Vehicle (CV) Deployments

This study examined the current procurement framework of connected vehicle (CV) deployments in Florida to provide guidance for expediting CV projects. A brief review of the current state-of-the-practice of CV deployment at the regional, national, and international level was conducted. Ongoing and operational CV projects included in the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Florida CV Initiative, as of December 2018, were also reviewed. To explore the current state-of-the-practice of CV deployments in Florida, FDOT project managers from Districts Two and Five, the Central Office, the Florida Turnpike Enterprise (FTE), and the City of Gainesville (District Two) were interviewed to share their experiences with the procurement process, lessons learned, and best practices identified from CV deployments in their respective jurisdictions. A second survey was conducted to explore lessons learned and best practices used in CV deployments by transportation agencies in other states. The information gathered from the two surveys was combined to develop suggested procurement framework guidelines to assist CV project managers with future CV deployments. Key factors to consider when deploying CV technologies include project scheduling issues, the need for additional post-planning work, system component testing and procurement options, Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approval for CV devices, and security management of the system. Since CV deployments are still fairly new in Florida, it is expected that additional guidelines geared at improving the procurement framework will be developed as FDOT expands its Connected and Automated Vehicle (CAV) program.
