PROCEDURES FOR LISTING STANDARD OPTIONS
Procedures for listing as Published Options for 14- through 90-passeenger school buses shall be as follows:
Submit a request to the DPS Specifications Advisory Committee that an option be considered for the Published Option List. Manufacturer’s literature and specifications for the option should be sent with the request.
Vendor/manufacturer should include certification that the option will in no way effect the safety and integrity of any equipment on or operation of the school bus.
The DPS will review the request and information. Copies will be furnished to the School Bus Specification Advisory Committee.
Should a demonstration be necessary or sample required for testing, the vendor would be contacted. Information regarding the demonstration or testing will be provided at that time.
Upon completion of the demonstration or testing, a report will be provided to the School Bus Specification Advisory Committee that the option be accepted or rejected.
The School Bus Specification Advisory Committee will act on the recommendation and, if approved, the generic description of the option will be added to the next Texas School Bus Specifications listing.
