Professional Technical Consultant Services

With the COVID-19 concerns and precautions going into place, MnDOT is currently not accepting paper proposals in response to P/T solicitations. MnDOT will temporarily be accepting proposals and responses to solicitations electronically to aid in support of social distancing and the adjustment to a more remote working community.

P/T Notices

MnDOT solicits P/T projects in a variety of ways. P/T notices are open to both pre-qualified consultants only and to the general public. Each section below describes the process being utilized, and the consultants eligible to respond. All documents on this page are in .PDF format unless otherwise noted.

Potential Projects List

MnDOT maintains a list of potential, upcoming Professional/Technical projects. This list is updated on a regular basis, and is provided to help consultants plan and prepare for upcoming solicitations. Refer to the link below for the most up to date version.

New Solicitation Forms Packet

In an effort to reduce the amount of data entry on the forms submitted with a solicitation, we've created a Solicitation Forms Packet in Adobe Forms. The packet is a compilation of the forms that may be required for a solicitation. The Adobe form will auto populate data entered, throughout the packet so it only needs to be entered once. The forms must be signed individually to acknowledge that each form was reviewed. This can also be found on the Contract Documents page. The posted solicitation will still include a regular .pdf of the forms if you would like to continue to use those.

Minnesota's commitment to diversity and inclusion

The State of Minnesota is committed to diversity and inclusion in its public procurement process. The goal is to ensure that those providing services to the State are representative of our Minnesota communities and include businesses owned by minorities, women, veterans, and those with substantial physical disabilities. Creating broader opportunities for historically under-represented groups provides for additional options and greater competition in the marketplace, creates stronger relationships and engagement within our communities, and fosters economic development and equality.

Whenever possible, MnDOT strongly encourages the use of Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE's), Targeted Group Businesses (TGB's) and Veteran Owned Businesses (VET).

Important note

The TGB and the DBE programs are different programs.  If a project has a TGB goal set, then responders must be looking at TGB firms for the goal.  Likewise, if a project has a DBE goal set, then responders must be looking at DBE firms. TGB and DBE are not used interchangeably.  For additional information about small business programs, please visit MnDOT’s Civil Rights website at mndot.gov/civilrights.
