The Bidding Process

Though, government sponsored construction projects are often laden with paperwork, they are considered to be safe, and well paying jobs.  These jobs come in all sizes and are put out by all municipality levels. At the city, county and state levels each entity has its own procedures for the bidding process and awarding of projects. Federal level projects are needed in every town that has a US Post Office, US Forrest Service or any US Military owned projects. The state level projects often involve infrastructure: parks, roads, bridges and water ways to name a few.  Counties projects can include: law enforcement,  road and bridge, county offices and county fairgrounds. Towns and cities have law enforcement,  public schools, public transportation , public libraries and public utility buildings. 

The bidding process usually start's with the issuance of an RFP or request for proposal which is generally an invitation to local architects and general contractors whom have a proven track record and the financial ability to obtain an insurance bid bond for the amount of the contract.
