Purchasing Bids: Sealed Bid Invitations

Listed below is a summary of the sealed bids that are currently open through Des Moines Water Works Purchasing Office. Clicking on an open bid link will open a complete specification document for that bid. At the bottom of the document there are data elements that you must complete in order to successfully submit a bid on line.

When you have successfully submitted a bid, an email notification will be sent to you indicating that your bid has been received by Des Moines Water Works. It is important that you verify all bid data prior to submitting.

Des Moines Water Works Purchasing/Central Stores Supervisor will also be sent an email indicating that your company has submitted a bid for the specific bid. The Purchasing/Central Stores Supervisor will not be informed of the bid details until all bids are opened on the bid opening date and time outlined in the specifications.

While every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of this information, only the terms and conditions set forth in the actual bid documents will be legally binding.
