Newspaper Classified Advertisements Online with Bid Solicitations and RFPs
Many public bidding laws require that governments advertise their projects out to bid in newspapers. The online classified advertising sections of local newspapers are good resources for finding local projects out to bid. There are two ways to find projects out to bid if a newspaper carries such advertisements. Enter the classified advertising section of the newspaper. First, find the legal notices, which often are a subcategory of announcements. This category (or a further subcategory) should contain projects out to bid if there are any. Second, if there is no legal notice section or if it contains no projects out to bid, perform a key word search (most newspapers offer this search option on their Web sites) of the entire classified database for "bid." Legal advertisements for projects normally will contain contact information and preliminary project information for bidders. For example, the Richmond (Virginia) Times-Dispatch (www.timesdispatch.com) publishes state and local government bid solicitations and RFPs in its online Classified Section. Choose Classifieds, then Announcements, then Legal Notices. The Wisconsin State Journal and the Madison (Wisconsin) Capital Times include legal notices for bidding and proposals for State of Wisconsin projects on their Web site (www.madison.com/classifieds/browse.
