It is Critical that Potential Bidders Know and Understand:
For all DCAMM projects issued for bid on or after March 15th, bids can only be submitted by bidders to DCAMM through DCAMM’s encrypted E-Bid Room. No hard copy bids will be accepted at DCAMM’s Bid Room at One Ashburton Place, Boston, regardless of the project. Any bids received by U.S. Mail, overnight carrier, courier or brought in by hand will not be accepted and will not be opened, irrespective of when they are received. All bids must be submitted through the web-based E-Bid Room..
How to get Online Access to DCAMM’s E-Bid Room
Firms that actively supply construction related labor and materials on construction projects in the Massachusetts marketplace, specifically prime contractors, subcontractors of any tier and material suppliers wishing to bid on DCAMM projects are urged to apply for access to the E-Bid Room now by following two simple steps:
1. Apply directly to DCAMM for DCAMM Verification to access the E-Bid Room plans and specifications and submit bids
2. Once verified by DCAMM, register with the E-Bid Room host, Bid Express. There is no cost to potential bidders to register.
Once these two steps are successfully completed, potential bidders will be able to access, view, download and print DCAMM project procurement documents, including plans and specifications. This also includes addenda, plan holder lists, filed sub-bid lists and other procurement documents. This access also .allows plan holders to submit their bids and edit their bids prior to the bidding deadline, through the E-Bid Room.
Public bid openings will still be held at DCAMM’s Bid Opening Room in the second floor mezzanine at One Ashburton Place in Boston, but only bids electronically submitted through the E-Bid Room will be open and read aloud.
