Mobility Management & Administration Software System

The owner used ASU to apply Best Value to deliver a software system to improve the ability of ITD to effectively plan, implement, administer, and evaluate programs and grants to improve public transit, community transportation, ADA Paratransit, bicycling, and pedestrian programs across Idaho. This includes administration of Federal grant programs (e.g. Federal Transit Administration) and state programs.

During the Pre-planning and clarification phase of the best value process, the software vendor identified (1) what critical information they didn’t have, (2) when they would be able to acquire the information throughout the life of the project and (3) what they would do to gather necessary data along with a plan to address the risk of not being able to the required data. The vendor clearly explained their plan in conjunction with their milestone schedule. Additionally, because of the contractor’s high level of efficiency in terms of design, scheduling, and implementation, the owner was able to afford approximately 10% more in additional scope (reporting database and functionality).
