New Bidding Software for FDOT
Effective with the September 2017 Lettings, FDOT began using the AASHTOWare Project Bids™ software instead of Expedite®.  Bidders will need to contact Bid Express and obtain a new Digital ID to use the new software.  Bidders who already have a digital ID for Expedite, will not be charged a fee for a new Digital ID .  Please see the link above for further information about the steps needed to convert to the new software.

Electronic Contracting at FDOT
FDOT is initiating the use of program which will use the DocuSign® application, as a part of the Department's electronic contracting and paperless initiatives. The DocuSign® application will be used as the mechanism to transmit and execute contract documents for Road and Bridge Construction and Maintenance contracts. Beginning with the August 2016 lettings, the Department's staff and the contractors will transmit and execute contract documents using the DocuSign® application products purchased by the Department. Contractors will not incur any additional costs related to the implementation of this initiative.

For more information please see the attached documents and this instructional video from DocuSign®.  Additional information can be accessed at: https://www.docusign.com/
