APPLICANTS PLEASE NOTE

THE DESIGNER SELECTION BOARD IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT STARTING JULY 1, 2020 WE WILL BE ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS THROUGH AUTOCENE.  WE WILL CONTINUE TO ACCEPT APPLICATIONS VIA EMAILS THROUGH SEPTEMBER 30, 2020.

NOTICE REGARDING ONLINE REGISTRATION:

Please be advised that the Designer Selection Board is transitioning to a new online system for all of its operations. At the present time, interested prime firms may use the current Master File Brochure or may use the new AUTOCENE Enterprise Automation Platform that is available online to meet its statutory disclosure requirements. Please refer to this link HERE for more information. After January 1, 2020 all disclosures must be filed online and new Master File Brochures will no longer be accepted.

For more than a year, the Designer Selection Board has been working on an exciting streamlining effort with the AUTOCENE Enterprise Automation Platform that will enable registered users to access all DSB operations online. We intend to roll out the product over the next few months and as a first step we are encouraging prime and sub-consultant firms to register using the attached instructions.

By registering, prime firms will no longer have to provide disclosures (formerly master file brochures) as they can be updated easily online as necessary. Sub-consultant firms will also have full access and will be able to develop an online profile with references and firm information. Both will be able to search our database, select their sub-consultants and put teams together, respond to evaluations, and apply to projects. The resultant statewide database of designers and sub-consultants will be used by public agencies and municipalities to enter their evaluations, for any public project in Massachusetts.

We encourage everyone in the design community to enter all their information and start getting used to this powerful new product!

Eligibility Requirements for Applicants: In addition to the individual application form filed separately, consultants must first submit current credentials to be considered for state funded projects using the latest DSB Master File Brochure Form. Please visit the Eligibility Requirements for Applicants web page for more information.

Please use the latest DSB Application Form (Updated July 2016) and follow the General Instructions for Filing Applications.

Applications that are incomplete will be rejected.  Applications that are submitted on a form other than DSB Application Form (Updated July 2016) may be rejected as non-compliant and not be considered by the Board. Applications received at the DSB Office after the advertised deadline will not be considered.

MBE/WBE Participation

Applicants are strongly encouraged to utilize multiple disciplines and firms to meet their MBE/WBE goals. Consultants to the prime can team within their disciplines in order to meet the MBE/WBE goals but must state this relationship on the organizational chart (Section 6 of the application form) and submit all necessary forms.
