Public Works Projects

Approximately 50 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 current RFBs and RFPs.

We are proud to be leaders in Dane County’s environmental initiatives. This includes implementing the county’s “Green Building” policy. The policy promotes safe, cost-efficient, and environmentally sound construction. It also establishes environmental energy use practices in county government facilities, effectively reducing the tax burden on residents.
