Manual Notice: 2012-1
From: Mark Marek, P.E.
Manual: Project Development Process Manual
Effective Date: October 26, 2012
The Project Development Process Manual is being revised:
- To comply with an administrative rule change.
The Texas Transportation Commission has revised rules-9.13 and 9.33--regarding the use of newspaper advertising for issuance of bid forms, notice of letting, and notice of intent to contract for professional services.
Rules no longer require newspaper advertising for these notices, leaving the Electronic Business Daily as the sole required method of advertisement. TxDOT personnel, however, retain the option of using newspaper advertisements where they deem appropriate.
This affects Chapter 3, Section 4 - Public Hearing, and Chapter 6, Section 1 - Final Processing and Letting.
You may contact Rory Meza of the Design Division at (512) 416-2678 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Past manual notices are available in a pdf archive.
