August 30, 2019

Upgrade Now for Improved Transparency, Clarity, and Reporting

AASHTOWare Project Bids 3.0 is launching on September 25 with several requested enhancements from our user community. Agencies are encouraged to upgrade to the latest version of AASHTOWare Project Bids to receive the latest features and identify potential warranty issues. Built to improve agency control and contractor clarity, AASHTOWare Project Bids 3.0 has several key updates that expand the module’s capabilities. So, what’s new?

Improved DBE Functionality

Users will now see the DBE goal displayed in the proposal summary. The ability to customize both goal language and printouts makes it easier for contractors to understand project requirements and for agencies to tailor proposals to their specific needs.

Control Input Types in Custom Forms

Bid forms will now contain input data types for numeric, currency, percent and date values. By making form requirements more explicit, agencies can help contractors clearly and effectively complete their bid forms.

Conditional Programming Available Within Forms

Users can now set up conditions within forms, such as dynamically displaying or hiding information to match DBE requirements, contractor exemptions and more. Forms can now generate custom text if conditions are met.

Patches and Addressed Warranty Issues

Now is the perfect time for your agency to upgrade their version of AASHTOWare Project Bids. Staying in sync with the current version of the module helps close the gaps of potential security vulnerabilities and minimizes the risk of delays in your agency’s solicitation process.

The latest instance goes live on September 25. Visit the AASHTOWare Project user website for full release notes. For information on how to upgrade, please contact your Info Tech account manager or customer support.
