Important Information for Publicly Bid Construction Projects
Posting of the notice for bids on this site is provided for the convenience of all interested parties,
and to comply with the City's desire to implement "green" technology wherever possible. The City of Novato no longer produces paper copies of plans or specifications for sale.
It is the bidder's responsibility to ensure that the most complete and current version of the bid documents has been downloaded or otherwise obtained, including addenda. Only those changes made by the City in the form of written addenda will be accepted. Incomplete bids will not be accepted.
All City of Novato drawings are 24" x 36". Prospective bidders who do not have plotting or printing capability for this size document, should contact a local commercial printer. The commercial printer can access the City of Novato web site and download the documents.
Note: If the document size is changed from 24" x 36" to any other size, the scale will not be accurate.
Plan Holder's List:
To ensure receipt of all City-made changes you must be on the Plan Holder's List.
To add your company to the Bidder's List for any construction project:
- Click on any of the project plans or specifications listed.
- The next window to appear will have the "CLICK HERE TO ADD YOURSELF TO THE BIDDER'S LIST" instruction at the top of the page.
- The next window to appear will have a spreadsheet to add your company information. There is also a "Lookup" tab that allows you to quickly add your company to the bidder's list if you are already in the database. Many companies are already in the database, as are all of the Plan Rooms that currently request City of Novato project information.
Once you have been added to the Plan Holder's List you will be faxed notice of any project
changes, addenda, etc., which will be posted in the same section of the site where the plans and
specifications are located.
Contractors and consultants included in the City’s Contractor/Consultant Database will receive email notification that a project’s bid documents or Request for Proposal has been added to the City’s website.
To be added to the City’s Contractor/Consultant Database, please download the
Bidder’s Questionnaire and email your completed questionnaire to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Small businesses and disadvantaged business enterprises are encouraged to add your company to the Contractor’s Database.
