Value Engineering Change Proposals
Eric Kahlig, P.E. (Temporary) - Central Office Value Engineering Change Proposal Coordinator - 614-387-2406
Internal review procedure for Value Engineering Change Proposals:
The Value Engineering Change Proposal (VECP) should be clearly identified as such, and presented IN WRITING as described in the policy to the Project Engineer and to the District Construction Administrator (DCA).
The DCA along with District staff will perform an initial review, summarize findings in writing and determine a preliminary status (approvable/approvable if modified/not approvable). This could be iterative and is outlined in the policy as the initial VECP submission review.
If the District approves the initial review of the VECP, the DCA will forward the VECP along with the findings to the Central Office Value Engineering Coordinator in the Division of Construction Management. This is the preliminary VECP review as outlined in the procedure.
The Central Office Value Engineering Coordinator will coordinate a rapid Central Office review (including Estimating, FHWA and other areas) and direct replies back to the DCE within 15 days.
The District will make a final determination based on the comments and direct the Contractor accordingly.
The Contractor will submit the final VECP proposal to the DCA, who will forward the VECP to the Central Office Value Engineering Coordinator for final review.
