Call for Submissions

The Division of Research, Innovation & System Information (DRISI) of the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) requests research proposals from public research institutions: public colleges, universities, and government agencies that bring solutions to the Caltrans research problems.  Respondents are encouraged to engage in collaborations with public agency partners, to enhance the research and to facilitate communication of research results. The DRISI Call for Submissions (CFS) is being offered for FY 2024/2025, please see the timeline below.

Private universities or institutions are not eligible participants under this CFS process and direct submittals from these institutions cannot be accepted.  Public institutions using subcontracts with private entities are subject to certain conditions and may not meet the solicitation criteria(s). 

The research needs for a CFS are based on a direct and comprehensive Initial Scope of Work (ISOW).
