Transportation Professional Services Selection Board (TPSSB)

The Transportation Professional Services Selection Board (TPSSB) was authorized in 1974 (Chapter 732, Acts of 1974). When a contract exceeds $200,000, the Board makes recommendations to the Board of Public Works on the award of contracts for architectural or engineering services needed by the Department. Actions of the Selection Board are governed by the Maryland Procurement of Architectural and Engineering Services Act - Transportation Agencies (Code State Finance and Procurement Article, secs. 13-301 through 13-323) and the requirements of the State Procurement Regulations (COMAR 21.12.02).

The Board has four members. The Governor appoints two members to five-year terms and, upon recommendation of the Secretary of Transportation, selects one from the Department of Transportation. The Secretary of Transportation serves ex officio. On recommendation of the Secretary the Governor may name an alternate. To learn more, visit
