New DSB Online Registration Process

The Designer Selection Board will require all designers to register online for state funded projects starting January 1, 2020


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!
