The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) Project Managers use the Consultant Evaluation System Manual to measure Consultant Performance.
Active Consultant contracts are evaluated on a six-month cycle. Project Management Design Consultants are evaluated in three major categories during Design and Construction Phases of work: Schedule, Quality, and Project Management.
Each category is assigned a scoring weight relative to its importance to the phase of work being performed. The weight is multiplied by the score for that category.
Ratings are generated for each Consultant based on the firm's ratings in the system as follows:
- Final Project Rating - a rating for each project;
- Discipline Average - an average rating of all projects within a discipline; and
- Consultant Overall Average - an overall average rating of all projects currently in the system.
NOTE: There are no Swim Lane Flow Charts, Procedures, or Responsibilties Matrix for Performance Evaluation. As the process is owned by Procurement - Professional Services, there is a very brief summary and a link to the Procurement page.
