Traffic Engineering Assistance Program (TEAP) Funding Now Available

Application period 9/17/2014 through 11/14/2014

The Missouri Department of Transportation is seeking projects that could be funded with Traffic Engineering Assistance Program (TEAP) funds.

The Traffic Engineering Assistance Program (TEAP) allows local public agencies (LPA) to receive engineering assistance for studying traffic engineering problems. LPAs facing a traffic safety or operational problem can utilize the LPA On-Call Consultant List to perform a traffic study.

Typical traffic engineering related projects include:  corridor safety and/or operational analysis, intersection(s) safety and/or operational analysis, speed limit review, sign inventory, pedestrian/bike route analysis, parking issues, and other traffic studies, etc.

Local public agencies are reimbursed for eligible project costs at a rate of 80 percent with the local agency providing a 20-percent match.  Funds administered by MoDOT will provide 80 percent of the TEAP project costs, up to $8,000 per project. If the total cost is greater than $10,000, the local agency can pay more than 20 percent to complete the TEAP project, if desired.

Eligible projects must be able to be completed by fall of 2015.

Applications are due November 14, 2014 to the district LPA staff, with selected projects to be announced in January 2015.

The LPA On-Call Consultant List was created through a qualifications based selection process.  The process was administered by MoDOT and quality assurance was provided by Missouri ACEC and Missouri FHWA.  MoDOT together with Missouri’s Local Program Advisory Panel managed the consultant review and selections. 

  • LPA On-Call Consultant ListEffective  Monday, February 24, 2014
  • LPA Contact Information regarding consultant selections
  • DBE Goals – DBE goals will not be set on individual projects that utilize the on-call consultant list.  Consultants will be expected to use DBE subconsultants on these contracts to meet the statewide goal of 13.49%.  This programmatic approach is an opportunity for consultants to use innovative ways to meet this goal.  If the local program fails to meet the 13.49% goal, MoDOT will consider setting goals on each individual contract.
  • For more information on how to utilize the LPA On-Call Consultant List, see EPG

Today, October 1, 2013, MoDOT and Missouri's Local Program (LPA) have each posted a solicitation for on-call consultant services. These solicitations are independent of each other, so please read each of them carefully if your firm is interested in providing services for both because there are different requirements within each solicitation. Please pay special attention to submittal requirements and please note that all submittals must be electronic as noted in the solicitations.

Consultant Invoicing Requirements

Consultant Service Invoice FAQ's  (click here)

There is a clarification in the EPG dated 8/22/12 on consultant invoicing requirements. As you all are aware we are requiring the use of our template invoice for consultants. The question came up about what the requirements were for sub-consultants. Listed below will be the new language provided in the EPG.

The invoice template MUST be used for prime consultant invoices. Sub-consultants who have a contract with the prime that is greater than $25,000 must either use the invoice template or provide all information that is listed in this invoice template to be considered acceptable.

We strongly encourage the use of the invoice template for those sub-consultants with contracts in excess of $25,000 to ensure invoices contain the all the information that is required for reimbursement and to avoid sending invoices back for correction.

MoDOT & LPA Engineering Consultant Invoicing Requirements

The new LPA and MoDOT engineering consultant invoices are now required to be used. This requirement went into effect July 1, 2012. MoDOT has developed an Excel version of the invoice to replace the old Word version that was previously used. The new versions are currently available on MoDOT's website and can be found as listed below:

Title Invoice Checklist Location on MoDOT's Website

MoDOT On-Call/Hourly Rate Invoice Fig. Fig. EPG 134
LPA Consultant Invoice Fig. 136.4.10 Fig. 136.4.18 EPG 136/LPA Manual Chapter 4

CLARIFICATION: For all existing contracts that have been previously invoiced (prior to July 1, 2012), the consultant only needs to show information on the current phase of the contract in the Progress Report section of the invoice. For example (see example below), if a consultant has completed preliminary plans, right of way plans, final plans, and is currently working on construction inspection; the invoice only needs to show the history on the construction inspection phase since that is the current phase of work.

For all new contracts that have not been previously invoiced (as of July 1, 2012), all information in the invoice must be filled out.
