Electronic Bidding Information

Last Updated on: 11/3/2017 3:33:27 PM

The City of Duluth now uses the Bid Express® electronic bidding platform to provide proposals, plans and specifications and to receive sealed bids for construction projects.  To view and download bid packages and plans on their website https://www.bidexpress.com, either click on the link provided in the advertisement or you can search for "City of Duluth" or the bid number. You must register for a free account to browse the site and search for advertisements.

In order to submit a bid through bidexpress.com, you must register and create an Info Tech digital ID, which is used to digitally sign bids. It can take up to five business days to process a Digital ID and it is highly recommended that a Digital ID be enabled 48 hours in advance of submitting an electronic bid. There is a fee for bid submission; bidders have the option of paying on a $25 per-bid basis, or subscribe for $50 per month.  A subscription allows bidders unlimited bid submissions for any agency that posts bids on the bidexpress.com website.

For bidders who are bidding online and wish to utilize the electronic bid bond option, please see the FAQs page regarding electronic bid bonds on the bidexpress.com Vendor page. For additional guidance, please contact the Bid Express team at toll free (888) 352-2439 (select option 1) or at support@bidexpress.com.

We will continue to list all current city bid opportunities and bid summaries on the Bids & Requests for Proposals page.
