Since that time the FHWA has encouraged State highway agencies to incorporate Value Engineering Contract Provisions (VECP) into their Federal-aid highway construction projects. As a result, VECPs have been developed by over 30 State highway agencies Author: E Johnson, B Rossman.

The Federal-aid Highway Act of reflected this growing interest with a provision requiring that value engineering or other cost reduction analyses be performed on any Federal-aid highway project and that states certify and report to the Secretary that design alternatives were considered in a public forum.

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Construction Program Guide notes that Value Engineering Change Proposals (VECP) are post-award value engineering proposals made by construction contractors during the course of construction under a value engineering clause in the contract.

Value Engineering (VE) can play a key role in ensuring programs stay within budget or even save money. This document updates information in DoD Handbook H, “Value Engineering,” last published in Marchand Army Pamphlet“Value Engineering” (undated), both of which were used as sources of information.

However, even for contracts which do not place such an obligation on the employer (and the FIDIC Red Book is one such) the contractor may be able to make use of the variation provisions in the contract.

Thus, for example, the Value Engineering Clause in the FIDIC Red Book allows the contractor to submit written proposals which will, if adopted Author: Jon Howes. The Value Engineering Final Rule was published inand this Final Rule removes the VE analysis requirement for projects delivered using the design/build method of construction, provides VE analysis guidance for projects delivered using the construction manager/general contractor (CM/GC) method of project delivery, and increases the project Cited by: 3.

VECP are post-award value engineering proposals made by construction contractors during the course of construction under a value engineering clause in the contract.

FHWA requires that all federal aid highway construction contracts include specific EEO requirements. In addition, all subcontracts and purchase orders exceeding $10, not including contracts for supplying materials, must include the same requirements. This is accomplished by the inclusion or attachment of the federal aid special provisions.

Once FHWA has authorized federal-aid funds for the project, the KYTC may advertise the project for construction bids. A project must be advertised for construction bids for a minimum of 21 calendar days prior to opening bids and letting the contract.
