Once cost negotiations have concluded, several documents must be submitted prior to contract execution.
If you or any of your tier-subconsultants whose contracts exceed $100,000 have engaged in any lobbying activities, you or your tier-subconsultants must submit an anti-lobbying/disclosure form which can be found on the Forms and Templates page.
Also, you are required to sign a statement certifying that, to the best of your knowledge, you have never and will never use Federal-Aid Highway Program funds for the purpose of lobbying.
You and your tier-subconsultants are also required to certify your compliance with all federal, state and local immigration laws. A sample immigration certification statement can be found on the ADOT website.
Once all of your paperwork is submitted, provided everything goes well with your prime consultant’s cost negotiations, the contract will be executed and your team will have officially been awarded the contract. You will sign a separate subcontract with the prime consultant. The subcontract will often include “flow through” provisions required of subconsultants from the ADOT contract.
Prime consultant are required to submit copies of their subcontracts with all subconsultants to ADOT.
