Equitable Distribution Program

Miami-Dade County created the Equitable Distribution Program (EDP) to facilitate increased contracting opportunities to community based Architecture and Engineering (A&E) firms, as well as afford County department’s access to qualified professionals for smaller projects in an expedited fashion without necessitating a formal solicitation process.  

The program is structured to equitably distribute projects in all County technical certifications to the program participants through a centralized rotational system. Each firm’s position, in the technical certification pools, is based on their prior contracting opportunities with the County.  The EDP is applicable for all county projects with an estimated construction cost of $2 million or less and/or study activities less than $200,000 per the thresholds established in Florida State Statute 287.055 for continuous contracts.

Equitable Distribution Program Application

Miami-Dade County's Internal Services Department (ISD) is pleased to announce that the Equitable Distribution Program (EDP) is now open in perpetuity for new applicants. The EDP is a prequalification pool providing contracting opportunities to Architectural and Engineering (A&E) firms in an expedited manner.

The EDP Application packages can be downloaded below:

EDP Firms
EDP Firms Report PDFlists, by technical category, all active firms in rotational value order, as of the date of the report.

Assignments are issued on a rotational basis. The firm's initial position in the EDP Pool is based on each of the firm's approved County technical categories and the rotational value (RV).

The rotational value (RV) is determined by the net dollars (gross prime payments (GP) minus sub payments (SP) paid to a firm in the last 3 years (NP), plus a potential earnings factor from awards. The potential earnings (PE) is determined by adding awards in the last 3 years minus gross prime payments on these awards in the last 3 years times a factor of 65%.
