PD-17 Overview
The PD-17 provides guidance and clarification on the use of Incentive/Disincentive (I/D) contracting provisions, excluding those pertaining specifically to quality (as identified in the standard specifications). 

Directions & Process
The following information will provide a general guide for the use of the I/D tools and processes.  The user must use this site and reload the associated software each time a new project is started.  The cost information from the Policy Group is updated on a regular basis and changes to the Road User Cost formula's will occasionally be provided on this site.
The initial calculations for project qualification to an I/D are made in the DAP review section.  The timing for this analysis would be at or just following DAP review and acceptance to the project.  The DAP I/D review will provide valuable information to both the budget and scheduling components during the projects development.  This work should be completed by the project leader (PL).  The PL may choose to include some further refinement through the ID Calculator tool to get a preview of the contractors costs.  This level of analysis will require some additional assistance from the project team and cost estimating group.
Once the DAP review is complete the PL should rely on the project team for additional support to complete the project.  Near the timing for the Advance Plan Review the  PL should begin the Final Review and instruct the specification writer to coordinate a sub-team of spec writer/traffic control designer/PL to complete the final analysis.
The processes and systems for development of the I/D are part of the development of the Engineers Estimate.  The information and support software are exempt from public disclosure as determined by the Department of Justice.  The use of this process includes same security protocols as those for the Engineers Estimate.  Do not disclose this information or software to other than ODOT personnel.
