Overview

Contra Costa Transportation Authority maintains and improves the county’s transportation system by delivering critical infrastructure projects and programs that connect communities, increase sustainability, and safely and efficiently get people where they need to go. Accomplishing this important work requires engagement with a wide range of professionals and CCTA regularly puts out procurement requests for contractors and consultants to respond to or bid on.

In an effort to make the procurement process more streamlined, CCTA has recently begun utilizing two web-based e-Procurement platforms called Planet Bids and BidExpress. Professional service procurements and opportunities will be advertised through Planet Bids.  Bid opportunities for CCTA construction projects will be advertised through Bid Express. For a current list of construction bid opportunities please visit our Bid Opportunities page. 

All bid documents are available electronically, as well as updates throughout the procurement process from bid notice to final results. All professional service firms must register at PlanetBids and contractors must register at Bid Express to participate in CCTA’s procurement process. There is no cost to register and view CCTA solicitations.  Additional costs may apply for downloading bid documents for certain procurements.
