Software usage

Consultant use of WSDOT's Bentley Software
Along with our Consultant Training document, this section clarifies consultant use of our software licenses for Bentley Systems MicroStation and InRoads to deliver WSDOT projects. Bentley Systems reviewed and concurs that this information does not violate the Bentley Select license agreement with us.

We distinguish between "on-site" and "off-site" consultants to determine what we can and cannot do with our Bentley software licenses and training, using these definitions:

  • On-site consultants: Consultants co-located with WSDOT staff in WSDOT facilities using WSDOT computers and logon ids.
  • Off-site consultants: Consultants working from their own facilities using their own computers.

Consultant license use and training attendance

  • On-site consultants: Considered the same as WSDOT employees and have full rights to use our Bentley software licenses when using the software from a WSDOT owned computer.
  • Off-site consultants: Cannot use our Bentley software licenses under any circumstances.

We developed CAE custom resources for the MicroSoft Windows operating system and WSDOT level playing field applications. We do not guarantee these resources will work well in other computing environments.

Carry chains, practice before leaving

Requiring chains keeps traffic moving during storms rather than closing a pass or roadway.
