The Consulting Services Program is responsible for administering contracts for the performance of right of way services (e.g., appraisal, appraisal review, negotiations, and relocation services) when the District Office staff resources are not sufficient to meet expedited project advertisement schedules. The Right of Way Consulting Services Program administers "non-professional" contracts.
Only firms that have been pre-qualified are eligible to submit proposals for these types of contracts. Additional procedures and guidelines for pre-qualifications can be obtained from Vicki Campbell.
