In-Lieu Fee Mitigation Program | Consultants and Contractors

Consultant/Design services

The Indiana Stream and Wetland Mitigation Program (IN SWMP) will require a variety of private-sector consulting and engineering services to identify, assess, plan, design, implement, monitor and maintain aquatic resource and associated habitat restoration, enhancement and/or preservation projects.

Many of the IN SWMP consulting and engineering needs will require contracts through the Indiana Department of Administration (IDOA) Division of Public Works. All designers and planners for IDOA Public Works projects MUST be pre-qualified through the Public Works Certification Board. Pre-qualification requires submission of an application for review by the Public Works Certification Board members.

The Designer and Planner pre-qualification category is Wetland and Prairie Restoration.

Certification Board contact information, the consultant/designer pre-qualification application and the pre-qualified consultant/designer list can be found at IDOA’s Public Works website at https://www.in.gov/idoa/2483.htm.

If you provide these services and are pre-qualified with IDOA Public Works in the required designer categories, we encourage your firm to share your aquatic resources restoration success stories that have been completed and successfully released from regulatory monitoring to DNR’s IN SWMP Team.

If a consultant has a project that they feel would make an excellent mitigation/restoration project site for the DNR IN SWMP, please email or call. 


Contractors and Sub-Contractors

IN SWMP will bid out implementation/construction of mitigation project designs through IDOA Division of Public Works for construction and maintenance activities.

All contractors and subcontractors that want to bid on IDOA Public Works projects with construction costs estimated to be greater than $150,000 MUST be pre-qualified through the Public Works Certification Board. Pre-qualification requires submission of an application for review by the Public Works Certification Board.

IN SWMP projects are anticipated to be bid out under the following IDOA Prequalified Contractors work category for construction:

1799.22 - Wetland, Stream and Upland Restoration and Mitigation

Certification Board contact information, the contractor pre-qualification application and the pre-qualified contractor list can be found at IDOA’s Public Works website at https://www.in.gov/idoa/2486.htm.

DNR IN SWMP will implement ecologically significant project designs that are subject to stringent regulatory success criteria. Experience in constructing natural stream designs, such as Rosgen for example, is highly preferred should you bid on an IN SWMP aquatic resource restoration project.

If any consulting firms or construction companies have any questions about DNR IN SWMP and our contracting processes, please contact Carl Wodrich, Assistant Director, Division of Land Acquisition.
