Mn/DOT advertises and solicits bids for construction and maintenance projects in an effort to open the process to all contractors and suppliers and to identify the lowest responsible bidder- the bidder who complies with all prescribed requirements.  This process ensures taxpayers receive the best value for their dollars.


Ways to Bid
Effective March 1, 2011

NOTICE TO ALL BIDDERS : All bids over $150,000 must use two-way electronic bidding.

There are two ways to bid on Mn/DOT highway construction and maintenance projects:

1-Two-way Electronic Bidding

Pre qualification & Qualified Bidders

Mn/DOT has no prequalification requirements for submitting bids on construction projects. 

Only eligible businesses can bid on Mn/DOT projects.  Debarred businesses or persons are ineligible to bid on, subcontract for, or supply materials or services for any state, county, construction, maintenance or municipal project.

Purchasing Plans & Proposals & Plan Holder Lists
