​​​Consultant Selection


The Kane County Division of Transportation’s Qualifications Based Selection (QBS) Process provides an efficient and cost effective method for selection of professional services while adhering to state and federal statutory requirements. We feel the process fosters a spirit of openness and fairness while selecting the highest quality professionals for a given project.

The QBS process description document Quality Counts! (link below) includes detailed instructions on how to become prequalified with the Kane County Division of Transportation. If interested in performing professional services for KDOT for the first time, please read the following document:
