Projects advertised for the week of 11/13/2017 to 11/17/2017
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is partnering with utility companies to help protect critical energy infrastructure information. To do this, Caltrans is introducing the use of a non-disclosure and user agreement (NDA). Access to the project plans will be allowed only to those who have a Caltrans Bidding Connect account and who agree to the terms of the NDA.
A database will record the name, date, time, and project number(s) each time a Caltrans Bidding Connect account holder accesses project plans. Caltrans employees are exempted.
The implementation is scheduled for November 30, 2017.
Beginning with projects advertised, or addenda issued on or after October 16, 2017, electronic bid files i.e. bid books and addenda, will be distributed through the Bidx.com website. These electronic bid files will no longer be available on the Caltrans website.
Please allow at least 7 days to complete the electronic bidding registration process for the first time. More information regarding electronic bidding can be found on the Caltrans Electronic Bidding website.
