Upcoming Contracting Opportunities

COMING SOON! We will soon use this page to post upcoming consultant contracting opportunities for SDOT on an ongoing basis. For now, see the list of upcoming consultant opportunities from June 2023, and read below to navigate to bid opportunity announcements.

Finding Work with SDOT

The Seattle Department of Transportation provides many opportunities in consulting, construction (public works), and purchasing. Read through the following information to ensure you can access upcoming contracting opportunities.

Starting September 2023, all current SDOT consultant solicitations will be posted and accessed through the Bonfire platform. Register at bonfirehub.com to ensure access to solicitations, addenda and associated documents, and to submit your bids for all SDOT consulting opportunities as well as Citywide purchasing opportunities. Citywide construction (public works) contracting opportunities will continue to be available on ProcureWare.

Open Contract Opportunities are advertised through http://consultants.seattle.gov/

To ensure SDOT and other City Departments are aware of your business and can contact you, be sure to register with the City of Seattle through the Online Business Directory and keep your profile current. Here you can:

  • Join a Consultant Roster for a specialized service. SDOT uses the Roster consistently to find consultants for a variety of projects.
  • Register as a Women or Minority-Owned Business (WMBE) with the City of Seattle. The City strongly encourages Departments and staff to engage WMBE firms in contracting opportunities.

 Steps to Working with SDOT

To be best prepared for the bidding process:

  1. Register with the City of Seattle in the Online Business Directory and consider registering with the Washington State Office of Minority and Women’s Business Enterprises to compete for federal funding as a DBE.
  2. Network and learn about upcoming opportunities. Attend events put on by Tabor 100, a local economic development hub and check out our Events page.   
  3. Sign up for bid notifications on Bonfire (SDOT consulting and Citywide purchasing bids) and Procureware (Citywide construction bids).
  4. Get technical assistance to prepare for bids. Attend trainings, such as “Doing Business with the City of Seattle”, offered the first Friday of every month: https://thebuyline.seattle.gov/
