Please make sure you are using the most current version of AASHTOWare Project Bids.  Not doing so can cause an issue when selecting a DBE.  The DBE's name is displayed as "Entry # 1 or Entry # 2" instead of the firm's actual name.

RE:  Subscribing to notification options within Bid Express and My Bidx

Please be advised that signing up for the option to subscribe to multiple notifications in Bid Express is encouraged by our Department.  This is not only to make sure you receive all communication per your interest in projects advertised but also to make sure all communication and information is directed toward the correct individual and mailing address.  Please take the time to subscribe to one or more of Bid Express auto-notifications and take a look at the My Bidx preferences which allows you to revise or correct contact information different from what is listed in your Expedite file or the Prequalification List.
