Single Prime Bidding and Contracting

The 2013-15 Wisconsin State Budget (2013 Wisconsin Act 20) significantly altered the bidding contracting processes for state construction projects. In summary, it created a mandatory pre-bid contractor certification program and required that all projects over $185,000 are let through single prime bidding and contracting. Under the new laws, all potential bidders must become certified by the Wisconsin Department of Administration (DOA) prior to submitting bids. All bids received from contractors who are not certified will be rejected. Please access the DFD Contractor Certification web page to apply for certification. Please access the links on the DFD Single Prime Bidding and Contracting web page for more information about how projects will be let under the new system.
