Bidders must submit the “Bid Proposal Request Form” (Part C) to the Department, in order to be eligible to submit bids on specific projects. Bidders that submit a Bid Proposal Request Form to bid on a specific project, will receive an email response from the Department acknowledging that the bidder has been approved/validated to bid on that specific project.  Bids will not be accepted from bidders that have not been approved/validated by the Department to bid on a specific project.
