Important Notice:  Please be advised that contractor certifications are only valid for a two year period.  Please update and resubmit your application at least 2 months prior to your certification expiration date to allow sufficient time for processing a certification decision.  All bids received from contractors who have an expired certification will be rejected. If you have any questions, please email us at:


Effective January 1, 2014, pursuant to Wis. Stats. 16.855(9m), contractors are required to be certified by the Department of Administration prior to submitting bids on a state construction project. Please do not bid on projects outside of your certified division(s) of work and/or over your certified budget thresholds. All bids received from contractors who are not certified will be rejected. If your company is not certified, please review the following documents 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.
