Service Units

​​​For the period from July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018, AASHTO has an arrangement with the AASHTOWare Pavement ME Design contractor, ARA, to offer special fixed-fee increments or units of contractor-provided service for consultation and support to assist the agency in preparing data and using AASHTOWare Pavement ME Design.  Service units can be ordered in unit increments of $13,500.  This fee includes the AASHTO administrative costs.  Each service unit provides $12,2​00 in ARA contractor services.

The actual number of hours may vary depending on the AASHTO billing level of the employees involved. Service units remaining at the conclusion of a fiscal year will be carried forward into the next fiscal year. The number of service units carried forward will be adjusted to reflect the subsequent year's price per unit, but the dollar value of the licensee's service units available will remain the same.
