PROJECT: TDOT ON-CALL CEI CONTRACT
CLIENT: Tennessee Department of Transportation
Vaughn & Melton was selected for three consecutive contracts to provide “on-call” construction engineering and inspection services throughout Region I. Under these contracts, V&M provided services for forty-four (44) separate work orders.
The work orders included everything from multi-million dollar rural highway reconstruction, bridge replacement, and interstate interchange improvements to minor urban intersection improvements. Vaughn & Melton also worked with TDOT
to provide NACE certified inspection of paint coatings and processes on three separate work orders. Four (4) work orders included assisting TDOT office personnel with final records closeout for fifteen (15) separate construction projects. Responsibilities included field measurement verification, field book entry verification, computation verification, material verification, test report verification, payroll compliance verification, DBE compliance verification, data entry and other related duties.
Vaughn & Melton has worked very closely with TDOT during the transition period required for the implementation of the Site Manager Program on all projects. Vaughn & Melton has made substantial capital investment in laptop computers and other peripheral equipment, as well training on site personnel for this program. All of Vaughn & Melton CEI personnel have received training in the utilization of the Site Manager program and are current users of the system.
These projects demonstrate V&M’s ability to effectively work with TDOT construction personnel providing construction engineering and inspection services. It also demonstrates our understanding of TDOT’s records requirements and processes while managing and administering projects.
