Information for contractors and consultants specific to the City of Omaha

The City of Omaha and the Public Works Department are dedicated to creating a professional working relationship with Contractors, Consultants and Small Businesses that do business with them. For more information regarding information on bids and RFPs, visit the City of Omaha’s website here.

What is the Small and Emerging Small Business Program (SEB) in Omaha?

The Small and Emerging Small Business Program is designed to give preference to contractors that have a headquarters based in the most impoverished areas of the city to encourage native job growth that will help the smaller businesses to compete for City Bid Contracts. Once a business becomes certified they retain certification for 3 years before recertification is required. For more information, visit the City of Omaha’s website here.

What is Quest CDN?

Quest CDN is an online platform for distributing bid documents. This allows contractors the freedom to select what and how many print copies of plans they need. For more information, visit the City of Omaha’s website here.

How do you bid with the City?

As 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 Department are distributing electronic documents through Quest CDN.
