With current circumstances surrounding COVID-19, the Department is taking reasonable measures to help reduce the transmission of the virus by working remotely and practicing social distancing. Mail services, and specifically our ability to receive mail, may be impacted in the short term. That said, we would like to offer a few suggestions in hopes to keep business running as seamlessly as possible during this difficult time.
The Department is encouraging all Contractors who will be submitting their prequalification renewals to use the following address: NDOT.ContractorPrequalification@nebraska.gov This mailbox is monitored by three Contracts employees who will make sure we continue to process the prequalification’s in a timely manner.
To help ensure that we receive your bid prior to the submission deadline, we are encouraging electronic bidding. If your Company does not have a Digital ID and would like to begin bidding electronically, please contact BidX at 1-888-352-2439 for assistance in setting one up.
We are strongly encouraging those Companies who plan to bid with us in the near future to use an Annual Bid Bond and to bid electronically using Bid Express. Annual bid bonds are available on our website at: https://dot.nebraska.gov/business-center/business-opp/hwy-bridge-lp / These can be emailed in to NDOT.ContractLettings@nebraska.gov for review and approval prior to any letting.
All Certificates of Insurance should be sent electronically to NDOT.ConstructionInsurance@nebraska.gov
As of today, Lettings will be held as scheduled and will be opened and read at NDOT. If there is any change to this process, follow up notification will be sent outlining those changes.
All staff will still be available at their usual phone numbers, and we will continue to check voicemail and answer emails as we are working remotely.
If you would like to be added to a ListServ that will notify you when certain groups of work will be let, and the letting that they will be in, please click here.
