2014 CONSTRUCTION STANDARDS: The City of Seattle has published a new edition of our Construction Standards (Plans and Specifications) in March of 2014. The City’s Construction Standards apply whenever any public or private construction is performed in the City’s Right of Way. The Construction Standards are the primary contract documents for public works construction contracts.

BIDDING: The City is posting all bid documents received and any applicable Inclusion Plan scoring. They should be posted for viewing Thursday following bid opening. This allows you to access the documents directly and as soon as possible. The bid documents will be as received; they will not have completed responsiveness and responsibility reviews.
WMBE Subcontractors: Be sure to look at the bid documents once they are posted, to determine if you are on the "WMBE Contract Log" with a guaranteed commitment of use should your Prime win the award.
