A professional service firm such as an engineering design firm or construction engineering and inspection firm can be thought of as a rocket ship. Looking at the business as a rocket ship, it gets easier to remember and share the elements of developing a successful business.
Like a rocket ship a business has two basic parts, the engines that power the ship, and the guidance systems to set course. Our rock ship has five engines and four guidance systems.
Thinking back to when you first started your firm, if you did not go through the checklist you see below formally, you did so informally.
MassDOT routinely prequalifies Architectural and Engineering Firms (A&E) to provide services in various A&E discipline categories.
MassDOT uses this prequalification information when selecting firms for new A&E contract services. Municipalities and other parties may also use this information. An Audited Overhead Rate must be submitted to the Audit Operations Section as part of the prequalification process.
MassDOT uses a qualifications-based selection process for the procurement of firms for all A&E contracts and surveying services.
