Strategic Research Plan Projects
ODOT’s Research Section is posting Requests for Proposals (RFP) for the strategic research plan projects listed below. Thank you for your interest and partnership in meeting the evolving needs of Ohio’s transportation system, which is one of the largest in the nation. ODOT is grateful to the community of researchers who apply their skills and talents towards improving transportation in Ohio, and thereby, contribute to the quality of life for all Ohioans. Your efforts make a real difference to our collective future.
Changes have been made to the Proposal Formatting and Submission Guidelines. It is now required that non-Ohio agency submissions include an Ohio-based subcontractor or partner. Should you decide to develop a response for submission, you will find a number of helpful pieces of information below the project list. Please pay careful attention to this information, as it will ultimately lead to developing the most successful submission. Please adhere to these instructions. Non-compliance with the formatting and submission guidelines is cause for the rejection of a submission. Cost estimates for the posted projects are not available.
All questions concerning the RFP, including technical clarifications of the projects as well as formatting and submission of proposals, should be submitted using the RFP Inquiry Form. Clarifications will be posted to the Research website as they become available, so check regularly for updates.
