Consulting and Contracting
Since the mid-1990’s, Alberta Transportation has followed an “outsourcing” model for the delivery of projects. This means that consultants are hired to conduct functional planning, preliminary engineering, detailed design, tender package preparation, construction supervision, fabrication inspection, warranty inspection, etc. on Alberta Transportation’s behalf. Contractors are hired to execute the designs in the tender packages.
This section includes information for consultants, contractors, and vendors to conduct business with government, from design guidelines and safety certification to contracts and tender opportunities.
