Highway Division Rulemaking Actions

Proposed Highway Division Rules

These proposed rule changes are open for public comment. Please send your written comments to the ODOT Rules Coordinator.

Contractor Performance Evaluations

This rulemaking revises the title of chapter 734, division 10 to accurately reflect the contents of the division, adds a definitions rule, repeals rule 350 which does not apply to contractor performance evaluations, clarifies the original intent of the rules that contractor performance evaluations remain on record for 36 months for the purpose of determining cumulative occurrences of unacceptable performance and required corrective action, separates performance levels 2 and 3 so occurrences at each level are treated independently in determining corrective action, eliminates redundant language and implements other minor typographical and grammatical edits.
