SPECIAL NOTICE TO CONTRACTORS
Transition from TrnsPort Expedite ® to AASHTOWare Project Bids ®
Effective with the April 3, 2019 Letting, the Department will be switching from TrnsPort Expedite ® to AASHTOWare Project Bids ® Bid component. Each contractor
will be required to obtain a new Digital ID and download the new software prior to bidding in the April 3, 2019 Letting. A link to the Project Bids is available in
the Downloads section of Bid Express.
Bid Express is leading this process. Maine DOT encourages all vendors to work with the Bid Express Customer Service Team to facilitate this transition until complete.
In preparation for bidding with the new software, AASHTOWare Project Bids Ã ® Bid component, please ensure you have done the following prior to bidding:
1. Download the new software.
2. Create your new Digital ID for the Bids component.
3. After you receive notification that the Digital ID has been enabled, request to bid with the Maine DOT. The agency will receive your request and will approve or reject
you for bidding. You will not be able to bid to the agency until the agency has approved your request.
Bid Express suggests that all vendors install Project Bids - Bid, conduct tests, and train staff, as soon as possible, to assist in a smooth transition.
Questions with regards to this initiative should be directed to Bid Express Customer Support at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 1-888-352-2439.
