Features available soon:

  • The “I’m Bidding” Button:  we understand how valuable this feature is to you and your business; it will return in the coming weeks.  In the meantime, please email us directly and ask to be added as a bidder and interested proponent.
  • Document Search: this will also return in the coming weeks, with great visibility into which specific documents contain your critical keywords.

*Search Tip:  When you click project search you will see a preview result of everything in the platform.  Use your search filters on the left hand menu – specifically the “zone” to narrow in on local opportunities.

Items we are addressing:

  • Document Download Speed:  We know there have been problems related to download speed and we are actively working on a platform-wide solution.
  • Saved Searches:  We will have your favorite saved searches back in the system soon.
  • Multi-Stage Searching:  We know you often want to see Open, Results, and Awarded projects all in the same search table.  This feature will return soon.

Thank you for your continued patience as we continue the platform transition.
