Doing Business: Construction


In an effort to simplify doing business and to make the bidding process easier, the NJTA requires web-based electronic bidding for its construction contracts. The electronic bidding process includes access to new business opportunities, the ability to view and purchase project plans and specifications online, and the opportunity to prepare and submit bids electronically. Electronic bids have been accepted since June, 2004 and many contractors have taken advantage of not having to attend the bid opening and having the ability to make last-minute changes their bid.

Click here to navigate to NJTA's BidX website. BidX is used to view current construction projects, buy plans or specifications, view planholders lists, review bid results, and register for electronic bidding.

Click here to navigate to NJTA's CapEx website. CapEx is used for inquiries during a construction contract's bid period, and for construction management after award. All contractors who are interested in working with the Authority are encouraged to register in CapEx. Refer to the CapEx User Manual below for further instructions.

Qualified Products List (QPL)

Coinciding with the release of the 2016 Standard Specifications, the NJTA developed a QPL which centralizes all products which may potentially be proposed for use on Authority construction contracts and organizes them according to their Specification Section and Subsection. As a result, product brand names, model numbers, manufacturer and supplier contact information, and other specific product data – all which would have previously been found directly in the Specifications ‐ was moved to the QPL. The qualification criteria, i.e. material and performance specifications, for all products remain within the Specifications.

The QPL assists NJTA in providing a dynamic and up‐to‐date list of products to the contracting and engineering community, and in allowing manufacturers and suppliers to submit their products through a streamlined, paperless approval system.

Note that the QPL is not intended for use with contracts designed under the 2004 Standard Specifications.
