January 20, 2021 Letting

We are experiencing slow download speeds for download of bids.  This is causing a delay in the posting of apparent bids.  We are working on the issue and hope to have it resolved soon.


Online submittal of the Contractor's Financial-Experience-Equipment Statement


The Iowa DOT is now requiring online submittal of the Contractor's Financial-Experience-Equipment Statement (Form 650004). The Form 650004 must be completed and submitted online from a computer, tablet or mobile device. You will be able to upload attachments and submit them with the form. Any other submittal format is not accepted.

To be prequalified to bid as a prime contractor on most work types, a contractor must submit via online a Contractor's Financial-Experience-Equipment Statement (Form 650004) for review by the Department at least five calendar days prior to the scheduled letting date. Previously approved statements expire 18 calendar months from your financial year-end listed on the statement.

A current version of the Contractor's Financial-Experience-Equipment Statement can be found by doing a search for Form 650004 at the following link https://iowadot.seamlessgov.com/.

Please direct questions to DOT.Contracts@iowadot.us.

CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY TRAINING PROGRAM

There were changes made to Iowa DOTs Construction Industry (CIT) Program in September, 2018, including the requirement of pre-approval of all trainings by the Civil Rights Team.  Please find the revised program at https://iowadot.gov/civilrights/documents/TrainingFundProgram.pdf.  Also, please contact Danny Wagener at 515-239-1422 or danny.wagener@iowadot.us with any questions or for pre-approval of reimbursable trainings.


ACTION REQUIRED FOR BIDDING WITH IOWA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION
Iowa Department of Transportation (Iowa DOT) is moving to the new AASHTOWare Project Bids TM software starting with the letting of November 20, 2018. This transition will require vendors to create a new Info Tech Digital ID for use with the Bid Express (R) service at www.bidx.com. The new Digital ID is approved using a paperless process and the cost will be refunded for any existing Digital ID holders who are recreating their active Expedite Digital ID. After the ID is created, you must send a request within the Bid Express service to bid to Iowa DOT.
 
The process to create the ID and request to bid can take up to a week. As a bidder for Iowa DOT, you should immediately download the new software (located in the DOWNLOADS box to the right) and create your new Digital ID. If this process is not completed before the transition, you will be unable to bid. Having the new ID will not impact your ability to bid any lettings prior to the November 20, 2018 letting. A detailed announcement, including directions for creating your new digital ID are in the Also Available box at the right of this page (Project Bids Digital ID Instructions).
 
The Info Tech Customer Support Team is available to assist by phone at 888-352-BIDX (2439) or email (customer.support@bidx.com). The www.bidx.com training center also includes new training materials for the AASHTOWare Project Bids software.


NOTICE OF DIGITAL CONTRACT SIGNATURES
Beginning with the October 16, 2018 letting all contracts will be electronically distributed and digitally signed using Doc Express. Please familiarize yourself with the contract signing instructions on page 42 of the Doc Express Instruction Guide for Contractors and Suppliers. The link is: https://iowadot.gov/Construction_Materials/ContractorSupplier-DocExpressGuide.pdf


ALL QUESTIONS SUBMITTED THROUGH BIDX Q&A
If a prospective bidder, for a proposal for which the Department is accepting bids, is in doubt as to the true meaning of any part of the contract documents, the bidder may submit to the Contracts Engineer a request for additional information, explanations, or interpretations. The request shall be submitted to the Q&A forum at the letting website used by the Department. Questions should be submitted as early as possible so answers can be researched and posted. Questions submitted within two business days of the letting will likely not be answered. Interpretations may be in the form of an addendum to the contract documents. The Contracting Authority will not be responsible for any information, explanation, or interpretation from any other source.
