It will be required of persons, corporations, or partnerships expressing interest that the services requested, relating specifically to right of way acquisition, be performed in accordance with current United States Department of Transportation / Federal Highway Administration guidelines and policies, Virginia Department of Transportation policies and procedure, and applicable federal and state laws.

The scope of services include the appraisal of right of way, by Virginia Certified General License Appraisers or out-of-state appraisers who must have a reciprocal Certified General License, negotiations, and relocation of families and business involved in the acquisition of property (real, personal, and mixed) for the construction, reconstruction, alteration, maintenance, and repair of the public highways of the commonwealth.

Firms interested in being considered must reply with three copies giving qualifications, past experience, and availability for performing the required services.

Replies should indicate the relationship with any subconsultant, and DBE / WBE participation and where the work will be performed by the prime and subconsultants. Replies should also include current GSA Forms 254 and 255, with information on principal personnel to be assigned to the projects.
