General procedures for completion and submission of Testing Forms:
  1. Contractor and ITS inspector sign off as testing is done for the initial level. If there is any failure (e.g. corrective work items are required) then initial level testing is not successful. The ITS inspector documents the deficiencies observed during testing. The Contractor submits a plan to correct the deficiencies. The Contractor coordinates with RE and ITS inspector to correct and retest the items where the deficiencies were noted. Repeat this procedure until all the deficiencies are corrected. The ITS inspector signs off the initial level testing forms once all the deficiencies are corrected. The ITS Inspector provides a copy of the completed forms to the RE for Project records and returns the originals to the Contractor.
  2. For Network communication system testing, the Contractor and the ITS Inspector coordinate with NJDOT Division of Information Technology (IT) if required.
  3. The Contractor submits original completed testing form to the RE. The RE signs off if next level of testing is not required. The RE provides a copy of completed testing forms to the Contractor and keeps the originals with the Project records. If next level of testing is required then follow the directions noted below.
  4. The Contractor and the ITS inspector sign off as initial testing is done for the next level. If there is any failure (e.g. corrective work items are required), follow the procedure as outlined above under No. 1 to resolve the deficiencies. If operational testing (to observe the functionality) is not required, the Contractor submits the completed forms to the RE for sign off. The RE signs off and provides a copy of completed testing forms to the Contractor and keeps the originals with the Project records. If the operational testing is required then follow directions noted below, under No. 4 and No. 5 as applicable, to perform the operational testing.
  5. When Traffic Operations Center (TOC) Sign off is required: The Contractor submits the original completed testing form and a copy of previously completed testing forms to the RE and requests the RE to coordinate with TOC for performing operational testing. The RE forwards the completed testing forms to TOC for operational testing. If there is any failure during operational testing (e.g. corrective work items are required) then TOC documents the deficiencies observed during operational testing and submits the form to the RE. The RE forwards the list of deficiencies to the Contractor. The Contractor submits a plan to correct the deficiencies. The Contractor coordinates with RE, TOC and ITS inspector to correct the items where the deficiencies were noted. Once all deficiencies are corrected, the Contractor coordinates with RE and TOC to perform the operational test again. Upon completion of successful operational testing period, TOC completes the form and returns it to RE. The RE signs off if next level of testing is not required. The RE provides a copy of completed testing forms to the Contractor and keeps the originals with the Project records. If next level of testing is required then follow the directions as noted under No. 3.
  6. When TOC sign off is NOT required: The Contractor submits the original completed testing form and a copy of previously completed testing forms to the RE and requests the RE to coordinate with other responsible ITS SME’s if required (Bureau of Transportation Data Development for TVS & WIMS; and Bureau of Maintenance Engineering & Support – Electrical Section for RWIS) for performing operational testing. The responsible ITS SME’s must advise the RE if they wish to participate in any of the testing or deficiency corrections. The RE forwards the completed forms to ITS Inspector and directs the inspector to perform the operational test. ITS inspector performs the operational testing. If there is any failure during operational testing (e.g. corrective work items are required), then the ITS Inspector, documents the deficiencies observed during operational testing and submits to the RE. The RE forwards the list of deficiencies to the Contractor. The Contractor submits a plan to correct the deficiencies. The Contractor coordinates with RE and ITS inspector to correct the items where the deficiencies were noted. Once all deficiencies are corrected, the Contractor coordinates with the RE and the ITS Inspector to perform the operational test again. Upon completion of successful operational testing period, the ITS Inspector completes the form and returns the completed forms to the RE. The RE signs off if next level of testing is not required. The RE provides a copy of completed testing forms to the Contractor and keeps the originals with the Project records. If next level of testing is required then follow the directions as noted under No 3.
  7. Contractor proposes to initiate Project Testing when all corrections and final levels of testing is complete. The Contractor Submits copies of all previously completed testing forms for the project to the RE. The RE forwards the completed forms to the TOC or the other responsible ITS SME’s as required with a request to initiate the observation test period. The TOC and the other responsible ITS SME’s advise the RE if the Project Testing is complete or if corrections are required.
  8. Corrected work testing will follow the same procedure as noted above, until all issues are resolved.
  9. At the time of Substantial Completion, the Contractor submits two copies of all completed testing forms for ITS systems to the RE. The RE forwards one copy of all completed testing forms to ITS Engineering and other responsible ITS SME’s for their records and keeps the other copy with the Project records.
  10. The Table below identifies the personnel who are required to sign off when completing the testing forms for the ITS systems:
