Contracting Overview

How to Bid on a RIDOT Contract

The RIDOT bid submission process has changed in recent years. If you have not bid in a while or would simply like a refresher course, we have a power point presentation that goes through the basics of How to Bid on a RIDOT Contract. Check it out for questions about the basic bidding procedure.

Q&A For Advertised Projects

All questions about currently advertised projects are handled through a web based question and answer system. This system allows all questions on a bid to be made public to anyone who wishes to see them. Anyone can ask a question pertaining to bid after going through a simple registration process. A list of planholders for each advertised job is also made available.

Draft Plans for Upcoming Projects

RIDOT is now posting draft plans for projects that will go to advertising in the near future. All documents are marked as draft, and will be replaced with final plans upon advertisement for contractors to submit bids.

How to use Quest Lite

The RIDOT bidding process is handled by a program called Quest Lite. Knowledge of how to use this program is a prerequisite to placing a bid with the RIDOT. We have prepared a basic primer detailing How to use RIDOT's Quest Lite. This power point will cover the basics and also explains how contractors can sign up for classes that will give them a more in depth look at the software.
