GENERAL NOTICES:

ALL BIDS FOR ROAD AND BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS MUST BE SUBMITTED ELECTRONICALLY VIA BID EXPRESS 

Beginning March 31, 2016, CDOT utilizes Project Bids to facilitate the bidding process.  AASHTOWare Project Bids effectively streamlines the bidding process, providing transportation agencies with control over the bid letting process while facilitating bid submittal for contractors. The system allows bidders to receive proposal item schedules and submit and withdraw item bids in a secure, electronic environment. AASHTOWare Project Bids also tracks Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) commitments and automates calculations, applying amendments and other tasks. Electronic bidding greatly reduces the time and expenses associated with data entry, bid revisions, bid tabulations and finalization.

Bid Express™ Secure Internet Bidding

Many contractors who work with CDOT already use AASHTOWare Project Bids to produce a bid with an electronic bid file. When your bid is prepared using Project Bids, you can use the Bid Express™ Secure Internet Bidding service to submit it over the internet.
