Project Opportunities with Great Rivers Greenway:


IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR BIDDING ON CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS

In an effort to promote greater efficiency and standardization, Great Rivers Greenway has transitioned to Bid Express for secure internet bidding. All bid documents are available to download free of charge at www.bidexpress.com.

Bid Express registration is required. Registration is free; however, if you choose to submit your bid online there is a non-refundable $25 charge.

It is highly recommended that all interested bidders subscribe to receive updates on bids. It is the responsibility of the bidder to download all bid documents associated with the bid solicitation.

All electronic bidders must first register on www.bidexpress.com and create an Info Tech Digital ID for free, which is used to digitally sign bids. Digital IDs/Signatures assure the agency knows who the bid is really from (forgery resistance), ensure nobody can alter a bid (non-repudiation), prevent information in a bid from disclosure to unauthorized parties (secrecy), and safeguard that even authorized parties cannot access them prior to the public opening (sealing).

Processing your Digital ID can take up to five business days, and it is highly recommended that a Digital ID be enabled 48 hours in advance of submitting an electronic bid. Please plan accordingly. See the Bid Express Set-Up Guide for a detailed step-by-step walk-through. Instead of paying paper bidding costs (hand or hired delivery costs), a fee of $25 will be incurred for those who wish to bid electronically on a pay-per solicitation basis. Alternatively, you may subscribe for $50 per month for unlimited electronic bid submission for all agencies posting solicitations on the www.bidexpress.com website, plus get email notifications by agency/work type/commodity code.

For additional guidance, please contact the Bid Express customer support team at toll free (888) 352-BIDX(2439) or support@bidexpress.com.
