Consultant Contract and Bidding Documents for Download
Effective February 2020, OGS Design & Construction (D&C) has implemented the use of Infotech’s Bid Express® service for electronic processing of all architectural, engineering, and surveying (i.e., qualifications-based) consultant procurements. Such consultant vendors are able to use the service to download Request for Qualifications (RFQ) packages, upload proposals, and obtain status updates.
Please note that, at this time, D&C will not be implementing the Bid Express service for “best-value” procurements (Request For Proposals - RFPs) or “lowest price” procurements (Invitation For Bids - IFBs). RFPs and IFBs are used to procure construction management services, testing services and design-build contracts.
How to acquire contract documents:
Bidding and contract documents for OGS D&C projects are available for download from Infotech Bid Express® service. Vendors wishing to view/download bid documents, and/or bid online, must complete a one-time registration for the Bid Express® service.
