Administrative qualification is a process used by the department to verify that your firm has an indirect cost rate that meets department requirements.
Become Administratively Qualified
You may demonstrate administrative qualification by an audit or by self-certification of its incorporated entity or business segment. TxDOT requires the use of direct labor cost as the allocation base for allocating indirect costs.
Submit Qualification Documentation
After an audit is complete, you must submit qualification documentation for review.
Requirements for Processes
The administrative qualification requirements for the four selection processes - Comprehensive, Federal, Streamlined, and Accelerated- are addressed in the Texas Administrative Code, Title 43, Subchapter C, in Sections 9.34(b), 9.35(b), 9.36(b), and 9.37(b), respectively.
