NOTICE: Holiday Bid Schedule
Season’s Greetings! At this time of year, everything seems to get more hectic. The State Construction Department wants to ensure that bids receive the maximum amount of attention and interest from contractors during this busy time. Therefore, following is a list of dates that the State Construction Department will not be issuing bids during this holiday season. Please remember these when setting dates for bids, pre-bid meetings, questions, and addenda during this time.
November 10 & 11
The entire SCD team sends wishes for a happy holiday season and prosperous New Year.
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.
Inquiries regarding obtaining a residency certification number should be directed to the Department of Workforce Services, Labor Standards Office at (307) 777-7261.

Finding Bids & Navigating the SCD Procurement Site
From the Procurement Home Page, you will be able to navigate and locate bid listings for the State of Wyoming, as well as school districts, community colleges and the University of Wyoming. SCD bids will be posted on our online bidding system, Public Purchase, although some agencies post their bids through other bid listing systems.
Receiving Notices of Bid Opportunities
The SCD currently releases bids on Public Purchase. To receive notices when bids are posted, please register for a FREE account and select the commodity codes to be notified of bids that relate to your specific trade. For more detailed information on how to register with Public Purchase, please view this step-by-step guide.
If you already have an account on Public Purchase, we would encourage you to double-check the classification codes you have selected to ensure correct notification of bids because the SCD has recently updated the commodity & classification codes from the NAICS to the NIGP commodity & classification codes, which provides more specific and detailed choices to help you see the bids best suited for your trade. You will be notified by Public Purchase of bids that have been released based on the commodity & classification codes you have selected in Public Purchase.
Public Purchase is also the online bidding system used by A&I Procurement. Please be sure you are registered with both SCD and A&I so that you will receive notification of bids from both agencies.
