In response to the COVID-19 global pandemic and in an effort to keep our contractors and staff healthy, the Department of Enterprise Services Facility Professional Services (FPS) is making changes to the Public Works bid submittal and bid opening process.

FPS will be accepting mailed-in or hand-delivered bids. Contractors are highly encouraged to mail bids whenever possible in an effort to stay home and stay healthy. Clearly identify that it is a SEALED BID on the outside of the envelope. Include an attention line in the address to ensure that the bid is routed correctly.

For hand-delivering bids, a locked drop box will be available outside the 1500 Jefferson St. S.E. building for contractors to deposit their sealed bids. We ask that you please maintain a distance of at least six feet from all other individuals when dropping off bids. An FPS staff member will be inside the lobby monitoring the locked drop box during those hours.

Additionally, all Public Works Bid Openings will be conducted via live stream on YouTube. A link to the live stream for bid opening can be found above. Contractors and the public will not be allowed to stay to watch the bid opening in person. We will strive to begin bid opening live streams within thirty minutes of the bid closing and appreciate your patience as we deploy this new process. If you have questions, please contact us at or call (360) 902-7272.
