Business and Contract Opportunities

To provide greater transparency and awareness of opportunities at Denver Water, we are currently in the process of posting all proposals and bids greater than $50,000 on our website, which are broken out into three categories: (1) Engineering, (2) Purchasing and (3) Other. Proposals, bids and other opportunities (e.g., RFPs, RFQs, IFBs, etc.) change frequently. Please check back often.

Engineering Contract Opportunities

Denver Water’s Engineering division solicits bids for various projects each year, including work on pipelines, pump stations, reservoirs, bridges and buildings. Unless otherwise noted, construction project bid advertisements and contract documents including all specifications, plans, bid documents, advanced prequalified lists and prequalification forms are accessible through QuestCDN.

Current Purchasing Contract Opportunities

A department within Denver Water may require specific services or supplies. Our Purchasing section, acting as a agent, conducts the formal solicitation process. In most cases, our Purchasing section uses the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System (RMEPS) to solicit bidder’s proposals. Interested parties who want to do business with Denver Water Purchasing should sign up through RMEPS. There is no cost to join. However, if interested parties wish to be notified automatically of Denver Water Purchasing bid opportunities, a nominal fee is required by RMEPS. Unless otherwise noted, all pertinent documents can be accessed through RMEPS.

Potential Future Purchasing Contract Opportunities

Some of these contracts are for one-time or project-based services that may not be repeated, are subject to an approved manufacturers list, or may be extended with the current supplier. Appearance on this list does not guarantee a contract opportunity will be forthcoming. In most cases, the Solicitation (IFB, RFP) will occur 3 to 4 months before the contract expiration date.
