The Indiana Department of Transportation (InDOT) says it will be transitioning from the Expedite Bid software to the AASHTOWare Project Bids Bid component on July 1.
The new bid component requires the creation of a new Info Tech Digital ID and an approved request to bid with the agency, Raquel Asensio-Garcia, assistant director, ITI-products at Bid Express, reports on the Indiana Constructors website.
“There are a few things to keep in mind when applying for the new Digital ID as the application has changed to streamline the process and continue to provide you with the most secure method for online bid submission,” she writes.
“We highly recommend you attend a free Internet bidding training session before bidding with this new process. In this session, you will learn how to download the new bidding software, apply for an Info Tech Digital ID for the Bid component, create a request to bid, download bid information, submit a bid online and additional services.”
The training session will take place Wednesday, Jan. 23 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. ET (11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. lunch break), at Indiana Government Center South, Conference Room C, 302 W. Washington St., Indianapolis.
