Information for Horizontal Construction Firms and Cities/Towns/Other Awarding Authorities
All construction firms must prequalify with MassDOT before bidding on public horizontal construction projects with an estimated value of $50,000 or more. This applies regardless of funding source.
This requirement includes projects managed by cities, towns and other Awarding Authorities, per 700 CMR 14.00. Regardless of funding source, once a project is advertised requiring MassDOT Prequalification or within a MassDOT Right of Way, only prequalified contractors can bid and perform such projects. Cities, Towns and Other Awarding Authorities should refer to the Chapter 90 Program Municipal Guidance Document for more information.
Construction Prequalification Committee meetings are held on Wednesdays at 8:30 a.m., except on legal holidays. Contractor meetings with the Prequalification Committee are held on Wednesdays from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., when requested.
