Information Regarding Construction-Related Procurement for Wyoming State Agencies
New Tools for Agencies
SCD Procurement now has its own email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are requesting that you start using our new email address right away when sending your bids, professional services solicitations, RFQs RFPs and addenda to SCD procurement for review, processing and, ultimately, releasing on Public Purchase. This will ensure that there is no delay when emails are sent to an individual email.
We have a new toolbox located below that features updated information and templates. P.S. Although the newspaper advertisement information is available, all legal advertisements will still need to be issued by SCD Procurement. We will continue to provide updates and revised templates to ensure we are providing relevant information for you, so if there is something you would like to see, please let the SCD Procurement team know.

Timing Your Bid / Project
Planning your Bid timeline:
When planning your advertisement schedule, pre-bid meetings, bid due dates, keep in mind there are statutory requirements that need to be met. In order to assist you with this planning, SCD has an example timeline of the minimum days to put out a bid on this website located here.
HOWEVER, when planning your timeline, please consider the type of project and the amount of work the contractor must do in order to produce an accurate bid and plan your schedule accordingly. While SCD will place the newspaper advertisement for your bid, depending on what newspaper you are using, you will need to take those individual newspapers submission deadlines into consideration when planning your timeline. Our website also has a listing of Newspaper Submission Emails Addresses for Legal Advertisements here.

Is your Agency's Procurement Construction Related?
Effective October 1, 2020, W.S. 9-2-3001 brought the Construction Management and School Facilities construction procurement together under one roof. With this, all procurement and bidding services for construction, construction-related, major maintenance, and architects and engineers professional service projects now fall under the purview of the Wyoming State Construction Department (SCD).
The Wyoming Department of Administration and Information (A&I) Procurement is no longer responsible for these projects/services. However, A&I does retain duties for procuring supplies and services, which could include some construction-related materials.
Featured below is a brief interactive presentation that will help explain the several processes involved in construction-related procurement, and it will help determine if the procurement being sought is construction related and thereby if you should seek to procure through the SCD Procurement or through A&I Purchasing.
