Managing construction projects for Dane County

Dane County Public Works

Public Works is responsible for designing, bidding, and managing construction projects for Dane County. We operate as consultants for all of the county’s engineering needs, including space allocation and development plans. We are also responsible for making recommendations for upgrades, repairs, and important maintenance developments.

Approximately 100 projects are designed and bid out each year. Larger projects are awarded through a formal Request for Bid (RFB) process, while smaller projects go through an informal quote process. Consulting and architectural or engineering services are also solicited through a Request for Proposal (RFP) process. Click here to view past projects.

The Dane County Public Works Department requires all contractors and subcontractors to be pre-qualified as a Best Value Contractor prior to being awarded a contract. Click here to learn more about becoming a Best Value Contractor.
