INDOT Piloting ASSHTOWare Project

Source: Joe Novak, INDOT Construction Management

“INDOT is taking another step toward replacing its legacy construction management software, AASHTOWare Project (AWP) “SiteManager”, with its newer web-based version “Construction & Materials.” Six contracts will be selected from the May 2024 letting to use the new software with a currently estimated use for all contracts let on/after May 2025. Standard software vendor support for SiteManager ended in June 2023, all support will end in June 2027 although contracts can exist in the system longer.”

Novak added that INDOT does not expect any significant impacts on contractors during the AWP pilot projects. All Contractor interaction with ITAP applications is planned to remain intact. However, some report generation may not be fully available initially such as IC642’s and Progressive Records. INDOT is currently working to make the reports available.

Contact ICI Director of Government Affairs Dan Osborn with questions about the changes.

The Indiana Department of Transportation will be transitioning from the Expedite Bid software to the AASHTOWare Project Bids TM Bid component on July 10, 2019. The Bid component requires the creation of a new Info Tech Digital ID and an approved request to bid with the agency. There are a few things to keep in mind when applying for the new Digital ID as the application has changed to streamline the process and continue to provide you with the most secure method for online bid submission.

We highly recommend you attend a free Internet bidding training session before bidding with this new process. In this session, you will learn how to download the new bidding software, apply for an Info Tech Digital ID for the Bid component, create a request to bid, download bid information, submit a bid online and additional services. The training session will take place Wednesday, Jan. 23 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. ET (11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. lunch break on your own), at Indiana Government Center South, Conference Room C, 302 W. Washington St., Indianapolis, IN 46204.

Please bring to the training:

A windows-based laptop with the Internet Explorer 11 browser and administrative rights.

  • If you are bringing a MAC computer, please ensure you have the parallels or Boot Camp operating system installed so you can run Windows.
  • A clear picture of your driver’s license, state ID, or passport in a file to upload for identification purposes.

Please sign-up online to reserve your spot at a training session so you will be ready to bid.
