In June 1999, the Maryland State Highway Administration went into full production utilizing the client/server version of AASHTO’S (American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials) TRNS*PORT System. TRNS*PORT is licensed by AASHTO, although it was designed and is currently maintained by Info Tech, Inc. located in Gainesville, Florida. TRNS*PORT is a trade name for a series of construction management products. Maryland SHA is currently utilizing four of the available products: PES – Proposal and Estimates System; LAS – Letting and Awards System; CAS – Construction Administration System, and DSS – Decision Support System. MD SHA is also using Estimator, which is a software package to assist the Design Engineers, and Expedite, which assists the Contracts Award Team with inputting bid information. All construction contract phases are addressed with TRNS*PORT from the initial engineer’s estimate, through awards, contractor payments, and finally, creates a database of historical contract data for bid monitoring and vendor analysis.
Communication has been enhanced between Maryland SHA and other states, as TRNS*PORT is used nationwide. We look forward to the future where we will utilize innovative contracting methods, such as Internet / Electronic Bidding.
