In a continued effort to make customer improvements, the City of Fort Wayne Board of Public Works launched a new web page today to allow contractors to purchase and download bid specifications from the convenience of their office or home.
The Board is partnering with Quest Construction Data Network to operate a secure site that will process payments and allow downloading for plans, specifications, addendums, bid lists and bid results. The City’s infrastructure projects bid through the Board of Public Works. Projects include improvements to public spaces, streets, sidewalks, trails, water, sewer and stormwater projects.
The cost-effective process makes it easier for contractors to do business with the City. Before the website was available, vendors could pay online or by phone but had to come to Citizens Square to obtain bid documents or pay extra to have the materials shipped.
Vendors can access the site at http://www.cityoffortwayne.org/bidding. After filling out an account form vendors will receive access that allows them to search, view and download available bid documents. The site gives users access to download documents seven days a week and 24-hours a day from the convenience of their home or office.
