Instructions to Applicants

General Instructions

An ITS Technology Product Presentation Process at New Jersey Department of Transportation (Department) is now in place for presentation/demonstration of ALL Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) products/equipment/services for Transportation Systems Management (TSM). This new process applies to all technology firms/businesses (vendors) and is being implemented to improve transparency in the process of researching and identifying products suitable to the needs of the TSM for the Department as well as to ensure an opportunity for all interested participants to participate uniformly utilizing the same procedures.

The Department is interested in learning about new TSM related products and will schedule ITS Technology Product Presentation opportunities for the purpose of allowing the Department to learn about new technologies and/or product updates that may assist the Department in meeting its mission of developing, supporting and implementing the latest technology for ITS initiatives. ITS Technology Product Presentations will occur on an as-needed basis.

Starting immediately, Mobility & Systems Engineering (MSE) will no longer allow vendors to contact MSE or its employees directly. Rather vendors interested in presenting their products will have to present them on ITS Technology Product Presentation Days. All inquiries regarding new ITS Technology Product presentations are to be made electronically, via email only. Firms/businesses are prohibited from making unscheduled or unsolicited contact or calls. Failure to follow these procedures may disqualify a firm/business from being considered for participation.

The names of firm/business and product(s) who have presented either via webinar or in person will be posted on the Departmentís website. The Application Form is a requirement prior to any presentation being scheduled and can be found on the Departmentís website.

The Department, at its sole discretion, will determine the product needed and the type of products to be demonstrated as well as determine whether an in-person or webinar presentation will be requested. All presentations will be scheduled in advance by the Department.
