     SCOPE ALTERNATES
             Presented By Juanita Moore
           SCOPE ALTERNATES
• A method of bidding used when the
  Department plans to construct a project with
  established priorities for the contract award in
  the event the goals of the Department cannot
  be achieved due to funding constraints.
           SCOPE ALTERNATES
• FDOT establishes “Scope Alternates” by using
  separate projects, with each separate project
  having the same project number with a letter
  suffix (A,B,C,…) appended to the project number.
• Each project stands alone for its scope of work
  and may include other design options such as
  alternate categories or items.
• Each of the letter suffixes represents a specific
  scope of work, “Scope Alternate”.
           SCOPE ALTERNATES
• For bidding purposes each separate project is
  attached to a proposal number that also has
  the matching letter suffix (A,B,C,..) appended
  to the proposal number.
• Each proposal stands alone for its scope of
  work and may include other alternative
  bidding methods such as “time bid”, “lane
  rental”, etc..
          SCOPE ALTERNATES
• Example:
  Proposal ID      Project No.
  T9876A           123456-1-52-01A
  T9876B           123456-1-52-01B
  T9876C           123456-1-52-01C
  T9876D           123456-1-52-01D
            SCOPE ALTERNATES
• The bidder is instructed to bid on all the different
  proposal scope alternates for a specific proposal
  number having different suffixes.
• The Department bid analysis compares each
  proposal scope alternate bid amount to the fund
  availability. The Department can select any of the
  proposal scope alternates that best maximizes
  the scope of work for the funds available.
          SCOPE ALTERNATES
• Only one of the proposal scope alternates is
  awarded and passed to Site Manager and DSS.
• A utility program is run from the letting
  proposal attachment tab to provide the
  mechanism to identify the proposal scope
  choice selected. The program also removes
  the scope suffix from the proposal & project
  that will be awarded.
           SCOPE ALTERNATES
• The other proposals will automatically be
  marked as “All Bids Rejected” and passed to
  DSS.
• The utility program also provides an option to
  back-out any previously selected proposal
  scope alternate prior to contract execution.
