Bids can only be submitted electronically through Bid Express. To begin the electronic bidding process you will first need to receive a Bidder Identification Number (Bidder ID) from the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans). After you have received your Bidder ID number, you can then establish a Digital ID, and a Bid Express Internet Bidding (Bidx) account. The process of establishing a Digital ID can take 7 days or longer. You will not be able to submit a bid until this process has been completed.
To receive your Bidder ID, submit a letter requesting a Bidder ID to Office Engineer. The letter requesting a Bidder ID number must be on company letterhead, showing the full legal name, phone number, fax number and address of the bidding company, along with an email address to which the Bidder ID number will be sent.
