RFP Responses/Bids/Bonds

Cobb DOT requires Contractors to create Digital IDs and submit bids online through BidExpress.

Vendors are strongly encouraged to use an electronic bid bond number online with their bid through BidExpress. Vendors should contact Surety 2000 or Surepath to set this up and get a valid bid bond number.  Bid bond numbers will be verified through BidExpress and Vendors will be notified immediately if the bid bond number is not valid.

It is free to view bids online using BidExpress. It is also free to download as many digital IDs as you need to submit bids. But, there is a $25 per bid submission fee that is paid to BidExpress. Vendors may also choose to do a monthly subscription of $50 for unlimited bids. Vendors using BidExpress will get electronic notification of all bid addendums.

Vendors that purchased bid documents from BidExpress will be listed on the BidExpress website.
