Traditional state procurement processes are not well-suited to the procurement of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). The objective of this study was to analyze Kentucky’s existing procurement processes, identify strengths and weaknesses of each, and develop recommendations for a revised process (or processes) that would meet the unique requirements of ITS procurements. Four existing processes were identified, studied, documented, and assessed. The study also looked at design-build processes, both in Kentucky and in other states. Recommendations were developed for statutory changes to improve Kentucky’s ability to procure ITS technologies and systems.
