Construction Bid Opening Video Stream
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) now offers online live streaming video of the agency’s public construction and maintenance contract bidding letting.
Construction and maintenance advertisements are posted on VDOT’s Web site and mailed to all pre-qualified vendors each month.
Information on how to pre-qualify is at: http://www.virginiadot.org/business/const/prequal.asp.
There are normally two advertisements each month, on the second and fourth Tuesday. The schedule is here.
The annual schedule for the advertisement and receipt of bids on VDOT projects is published in September for the following year.
The use of streaming video for bid openings is provided as a convenience for the contractors, sub-contractors and their management firms and should the streaming link access be unavailable or fail during the bid openings it does not nullify the validity of the scheduled process results.
Note: if there is no video stream active, it will not show on the YouTube page.
The video is accessible to all personal computers using a broadband Internet connection.
