Check the requirements

We require that consultants, contractors, and subcontractors wanting to bid on City project preregister with the engineering department. This preregistration covers projects like road construction, new water mains, or facility improvements. By competing this process you will get notification of upcoming opportunities to bid on projects based on your registration. 

Before you start

Keep in mind that this is a lengthy form. It'll take you around 25 minutes if you're prepared. You need to know what areas of work you want to perform on a city project. You'll also need to know the project value your company is capable of supporting.
