TRNS*PORT List (previously known as BAMS)
Use of the new TRNS*PORT started in October of 1997. The TRNS*PORT list must be used on ALL Items used by MnDOT for projects. It contains columns for Item Number & Extension, Short Description, Long Description, our Four Character Computer Code for the Unit Name and Desired Plan Sheet Unit Name.
The TRNS*PORT list is maintained by MnDOT's Technical Services Division. Obtain the list from the Technical Services site.
Why we use TRNS*PORT items
- Federal Aid Project pay items must match the TRNS*PORT list exactly, so that the Schedule of Prices can be generated for the Proposal package.
- The TRNS*PORT Schedule of Prices can be obtained by clients for their use in preparing their plans and bids.
- The Schedule of prices submitted by each client is input by line number into TRNS*PORT for use in bid analysis, and to recommend award.
- The TRNS*PORT file is used to produce the Contract Administration Record System disk, enabling the creation of payments during construction
