As of August 14, 2013, the Public Works Department no longer distributes plans and specifications for City projects in paper format.  Douglas County Purchasing and City of Omaha Public Works Departments will be distributing electronic documents through Quest CDN.

Electronic documents will help streamline and simplify the process and will save on costs for all parties.  The Public Works Department is excited to offer this new system to our bidders and contractors.

Contractors will need to sign up for a free account at  At this website, you will be able to browse all available projects or go directly to the project you want to download by using the project identification number given in the advertisement.  This account can be created in advance, or the first time a bid packet is downloaded.

**PLEASE NOTE (effective January 1, 2019) - The cost to download bid packet documents will be $30.00 for most projects, payable through the Quest CDN web site.  Upon request, you may obtain a bid packet on CD-ROM from the Public Works Department.  The CD-ROM will be available at a cost of $60.00 (including shipping).  These deposit amounts will have no refund associated with them.

As part of the sign-up process, contractors will be required to give a valid email address.  This address will only be used to notify bidders of addenda or other information applicable to the project.

If you have questions or need help with the sign-up process, please contact Quest CDN at (952) 233-1632 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
