|Public Works SWR
(Small Works Roster)
|By State law, Small Works Roster projects are bid by invitation only.
To bid a project, you must receive an ITB (Invitation To Bid) from an authorized Public Agency
that has selected you from their Small Works Roster. To limit access to those with an ITB,
Public Agencies will often password protect their SWR projects.
You must appy to be on an Agency's SWR list before you can be invited. Fortunately, a number of Public Agencies select from joint lists, so you only need to apply to a few SWR's. Three of the most common SWR lists are:
|In the General Contractors' Project Area, note that some GC's use passwords to
control access to their currently bidding projects. They typically include
project passwords inside their ITB's (Invitations To Bid) sent to the firms on
their private bidders' lists.
Consider contacting a GC's directly...you may be given access to projects once they establish that you are a legitimate subcontractor or supplier.
|Design Development||Some projects are posted by the Owner of a Plan Room during the design phase.
Typically, the project's Designers use passwords to allow only the Project
Team members to view/review drawings or reference documents.
In this case, you should not contact the Designers for a password unless you are part of the Project Team.
|Under Construction||Projects that are under construction are often posted in the "Under Construction"
section of a General Contractor's Plan Room. The GC's Project Manager will often
use passwords to control access to the Project Team members so they can view drawings or
other project documents.
In most cases, you should not contact the Project Manager for a password unless you are part of the Project Team.
On occasion, you may find that an Under Construction project is still in "buy-out" and could be looking for bid proposals.
