Functional (Performance-based) Maintenance Contracting in Denmark

By

Susanne Baltzer

Danish Road Directorate

Denmark


Standard Danish Contracts

  • Road authority sets requirements for mix design, and some performance requirements

  • 5 year warranty period for new asphalt concrete layer


Administrative Units 2006


Principles in Performance Contracts

  • Road authority describes performance requirements

  • Contractor decides product and time of laying

  • Road authority buys service level – not asphalt!

  • Long contracts, typically 15 years

  • Equal yearly payment


What does the contract cover?

Maintenance of:

  • Paved roads

  • Shoulders and open drainage systems

  • Road marking

  • Bicycle tracks and footpaths

Penalty / Bonus system

  • Exceeding the mean condition index for one or more maintenance levels

  • => no payments that year

  • Exceeding all other requirements

  • => penalty of Euro 1,000 - 3,000, if not OK after period of reconditioning

  • Bonus ?? The contract can be prolonged e.g. by 4 years


Payment Model


Why is it advantageous for the municipality ?

  • Better price

  • Equal yearly payment – fixed !

  • Quick improvement of network standard

  • Maintenance level is ensured

  • Lack of ressources/expertice


Accounting standards in municipalities

  • Roads and assets belong to road authority

  • In the accounting system, the asset of existing roads stays unchanged as long as they remain serviceable

  • Wearing courses and services included in these contracts are not considered investments, - only maintenance.


Municipality Contracts 2006

  • 19 contracts

  • Of 30-300 km

  • total of >3000 km


Performance based contracts generates development!

  • As contractors are not restricted to certain mix designs,

  • they use ”their network” for experiments

  • There is a an incentive for producing long-lasting pavements
