Scheduling of Bid Opening Dates
ODOT has reached agreement with the construction contracting industry to consider these factors when scheduling bid openings and projects:
Careful scheduling of projects to ensure strong competition.
Twice monthly bid openings, typically the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month. Occasional Tuesday bid openings.
Avoid placing too many projects at one bid opening, or too many projects of the same type (i.e. bridges, paving, etc.). This could result in diluting number of bidders, resulting in poor competition.
