The technical evaluation is measurement-based to ensure objective characterization and comparison among projects of the same infrastructure type. Measurement-based evaluation is implemented through defined criteria, measurement scales, measurement intervals and scores.
The technical evaluation compares similar projects to each other, roads to roads or buildings to buildings, when scoring and ranking the project requests.
The capital improvement project technical evaluation produces two tangible products. The first product is a score sheet for each project that details how every project was scored during the technical evaluation.
