FAQ

There is no individual notification for vendors of pending or released project-related Request for Information or Request for Proposal. Interested vendors should regularly check this page, as updates regarding potentialRFI/RFP releases will be posted here. The page also provides links to the procurement pages of the TPIMS Partnership transportation agencies. Those pages are the definitive source for individual state procurements related to this project.

Each TPIMS partner state is developing its procurement plans according to its internal processes and schedules. As each state releases an RFI or RFP, this site will be updated with links to the materials as soon as is possible. Because materials may be posted to state procurement websites sooner than they are posted here, we recommend you periodically check for notifications on state sites, listed above.

At this point it is likely that each state will be distributing data through their own endpoint, using standard data feed elements. However, data will not be available until after deployment in September 2018.

Yes, Wisconsin is scheduled to deploy some truck parking facilities later this summer. However, this is separate from what is being planned through the MAASTO TPIMS. Inquiries concerning receiving data from that project should be directed towards Randy Hoyt with the Wisconsin DOT.
