Helps Identify Possible Bid Dates is a public website that users can visit the site as often and whenever they want to look at potential open bid dates.  The site lists all existing project bid dates for those projects in the Construction Update Network, and lists project categories by owner type, project type, project cost, county and state.

The site will list other projects that already have a set bid date so that a representative can determine what is best for the owner.  That representative can then submit project details so that the bid information can then be listed on the site before the contract documents hit the bidding network.  Once contract documents are ready, owners’ representatives can then forward the information as usual – but this time without the guessing game of trying to schedule around a competing bid letting. is a service that is being offered by the Construction Update Network.  MBI is excited about the site in that it will help owner representatives name bid dates that are spread out more evenly and avoids situations in which a project is set to compete for bidders of other projects.  This not only hurts bidders’ interest, but can adversely impact the public owners’ pool of potential bidders.
