Consultants sought for Delaware River bridges
The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission is seeking to attract more consultants to tender for its work. It has launched a new website area to provide information about the professional services needed for its capital improvement work. DRJTBC is carrying out a 10 year programme worth an estimated $624 million. 'By publicly posting these procurements to our website, the commission hopes to attract a more diverse group of consultants and make the procurement process more open and competitive," said DRJTBC exectutive director Frank McCartney. There will be regular postings of requests for qualifications, letters of interest and other procurement information. A seminar is also planned to familarise more firms with the work and encourage greater competition.
