• Work with the Great Lakes Trenchless Association to evaluate the proposed specification through an actual HDD project and make adjustments as needed based on the actual application;
• Allow the larger different interest groups across the state of Ohio (engineers, general contractors, HDD contractors, suppliers and other stakeholders) to review the proposed specification to ensure it is balanced and beneficial to the Ohio tax payer: and
• Make updates and adjustments as necessary.
