One of the USA’s leading suppliers of applied informatics systems for the transportation industry, Iteris Inc., has been awarded a new Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Wave 2 Traffic Engineering indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract for smart transportation and traffic engineering services.
The new Iteris contract is for a three-year commitment with a potential value of up to US$3m. The contract’s first task orders are anticipated in mid-2018.The contract represents a multi-district IDIQ for TxDOT’s Austin, San Antonio and Houston districts, as well as TxDOT statewide. The company anticipates task orders for traffic signal design and timing, as well as intelligent transportation systems (ITS) planning and integration.
The new agreement is the third major contract awarded by TxDOT to Iteris in the past 14 months, and accelerates the company’s geographic expansion in one of the USA’s largest and most technically challenging transportation markets. In November 2017, Iteris won an IDIQ contract from the TxDOT San Antonio district for traffic engineering and signal timing. That contract was a two-year commitment, with a potential value of up to US$2m. The company anticipates it will have up to US$600,000 in work authorizations in the second quarter of fiscal year 2019 from this IDIQ.
“We are proud to be selected again by TxDOT to support important infrastructure projects in the state of Texas, one of the largest and most progressive transportation markets in the USA,” said Scott Carlson, Iteris vice president and assistant general manager for transportation systems in the western region.
“Texas is a strategic geographical focus for the company and, with this being the third TxDOT IDIQ awarded to us in the past 14 months, we expect to further expand our consulting and integration services in the state.”
