Consultant Certification

In accordance with Rev. Neb. Stat. §81-1712 (3), any consulting firm desiring to provide professional services on State or Federal-aid projects in the State of Nebraska must first be certified by the Nebraska Department of Roads (NDOR).  The certification period corresponds to the State’s fiscal year (July 1st  – June 30th).  Additional steps are required for firms seeking to be certified for NEPA Studies.  




Consultants with agreements using the Cost Plus Fixed Fee (CPFF) payment method are required to submit the firm’s overhead (indirect costs) schedules annually to NDOT for review/approval.  If applicable, please include a cognizant official approval letter. 


Consultants must certify* each overhead schedule using the language from Chapter 11 of the Consultant Procurement Manual (page 11-48).  For convenience, this certification language is available on a form called Certificate of Final Indirect Costs.

*The “Certifying Official” must be an individual executive or financial officer of the Consultant at a level no lower than a Vice President or Chief Financial Officer, or equivalent, who has the authority to represent the financial information utilized to establish the indirect cost rate for use under NDOR agreement.
