What is a Document Holder?
Only registered users can become Document Holders. Each project has a separate list of registered Document Holders.

As a registered Document Holder you are on the mailing list for all Addenda and other project specific notices. This is critical since we primarily send Addenda and project notices via email. As a registered user, once you Login to our site you will be able to see which projects have you listed as a Document Holder. If at any time during the bid process you wish to be removed from the Document Holder list or wish to be added to the Intend to Bid list, you may do so on the Project Information Details page for each project.
How do I submit an online Bid, Proposal or Information Response?
For most projects the submission of online bids, proposals or information will be available. We encourage all site users to utilize this tool. Our site allows for your submission to be accomplished over multiple sessions. The larger projects will be divided into manageable categories in which bid progress can be saved for each category. Bids, proposals and information responses can be adjusted without limit until the due date and time. All online submissions must be completed and confirmed before they are considered valid. Valid responses will be confirmed with a Confirmation Number, Date and Time. For construction contracts that require bid security, it can be submitted in the traditional paper method or electronically via Internet-based Surety 2000.
